Code inspector: is mainly checks the quality (performance, security..etc) of the code.

Extended program check: is maintly to check the syntax, like obselete statements. For example if you don't mention type in subroutine EPC will thrown a warning. Or if you use "tables" statement in subroutines/FMs, EPC will through a warning message as using tables is obselete.

For any development object it is always good practice to do both of these checks to improve the quality of development. And make sure that the count of these 2 checks is zero.

Hope this helps.
