You can add extra fields to the standard table through APPEND structure or INCLUCE structure.

You cannot make any changes to the SAP Standard table.

If you want to add extra fields then copy the SAP Standard table and then make any changes.

Yes, you can add the extra fields to the standard table.

Create Z-Structure with the fields needed and append the structure to the standard table by using the option append structure within table display

we can enhance the standard tables by using Append structures and customizing includes.

Append structures allow you to attach fields to a table without actually having to modify the table itself. Table enhancements using append structures therefore do not have to be planned by SAP developers. An append structure can only belong to exactly one table.

In contrast, CI_includes allow you to use the same structure in multiple tables. The include statement must already exist in the SAP table or structure. Table enhancements using CI_includes do, however, have to be planned by SAP developers

You cannot make any changes to sap standard tables.

if your requirement is to add external fields to standard table then first you copy that standard table into customizing table and then you can add fields to that table.

for this go to se11 give table name

select copy under dictionary object menu.

give one customizing name starting with z or y.

save and activate.

now you can add fields directly or with structure.
