Table Category of Database Tables

The default table category is the transparent table. In transparent tables, the database object has an identically named variant with the same columns as in the definition in ABAP Dictionary. The fields of transparent tables can be edited using Native SQL as well as using Open SQL. Outside AS ABAP, they can be edited using the programming interface of the database.

Other categories are the SAP-specific pooled tables and cluster tables. ABAP Dictionary makes it possible to transform database tables from one category to another. Before a pooled table or cluster table can be created, it must first be created as a transparent table and then transformed.
