In SAP systems, custom lookup tables store associations between code values and names. Learn how you can simplify your SAP CRM system by combining all your lookup tables into a single, generic table. Also, see how you can use this single table to avoid hard coding and to make SAP CRM more flexible.
Key Concept

SAP allows developers to create custom tables to store information per your business needs. For example, you might need a table that stores country codes and names or default values for certain fields. As the number of custom tables in your application grows, the task of managing the tables can become difficult. You can simplify your SAP system by combining custom tables so you need to maintain just one.
