Also Mention the enhancement category for any Structures that you have INCLUDED in your Ztable.

Hi,If you don't choose enhancement category then it shows the warnings.To remove this warnings you have to select the type of enhancement in the se11 . In the menu option select the extras option and in that choose Enhancement category.In enhancement category you will get options like:
  • Can be enhanced (Deep)
    The structure and its enhancement may contain components whose data type can be of any type.
  • Can be enhanced (character-type or numeric)
    The structure and its enhancement must not contain any deep data types (tables, references, strings).
  • Can be enhanced (character type)
    All structure components and their enhancements must be character-type (C, N, D, or T). The original structure and all enhancements through Customizing include or through append structures are subject to this limitation.
  • Can not be enhanced
    The structure must not be enhanced.
  • Not classified
    This is a catch-all for tables & structures that have no category set. You should only use this category for temporary status and must not be chosen for creating structures.
By selecting these options you can not have the above warnings.
