To edit records directly in SAP tables you can use different ways. Remember, that you have to do it really carefully in case of consistency.

Simple, but already closed by SAP:

You can use shortcode “&sap_edit” in SE16N if Sap NOTE 1420281 not implemented in your installation

More complicated way:

Go to SE11 and choose a table which you want to change. For example AUSP

sap-edit-table-01

Push “Glass-button” and you will see details of record you choose.

sap-edit-table-02

Then use shortcode “/h” activate Debug-mode for this ABAP program, choose variable CODE  and change value from “SHOW” to EDIT.

Press F8.

sap-edit-table-03

And wuala, you can edit record which you choose.

sap-edit-table-04

And another way to edit table in SAP:

Open program LSE16NF10 in SE38.

Find line(627) CALL FUNCTION ‘SE16N_INTERFACE’ and add a breakpoint there.

Open SE16N, after you press F8 you go to Debugger in this FM. There you got two parameters:  gd-edit gd-sapedit. Change them into X and press F8.
