SAP Transaction SE16

Data Browser

The SAP transaction SE16, also called “data browser”, is one of the most important and most-used transactions for technical SAP support staff and consultants.

It allows you to display (and, if you know how, to change) data from database tables in the SAP ERP system. Despite having been replaced by the newer SE16N transaction, it is still widely in use to display table contents, mainly because of its superior performance.
