Structure does not contain any data, view contains data

view is based on joining of diff tables

hi babu,

View is created using tables, hence it is aggregate object.

strucutre is not an aggregate object.

view is a imaginary table or virtual table, while structure is a skeletal part, which contains fields.

Go thro that above mentioned link.

Babu,

Basically structure and view are logical concepts.

A structure provide the skeleton of a table without any actual data.They do not have physical storage of data.

Views do not have physical storage of data.The view is derived from one or more tables which is created only with the required fields from the database table(s). It can also be created with table inner joins and specifying conditions for data retrieval.

For more information:

for views refer the following link

for structures refer

hi Babu,

Structure is just set of fields.. it contains no data. The fields in structure can be viewed in SE11 transaction.

View contains data..There are 4 types of views .. Maintainenance view, database view..project view..etc.. you might want to go thru help to know all.. But the entries can be seen in SE11 .

Hope this clears your doubt !

Regards,

Ranjita
