Maintain characteristic values

In this step you maintain characteristic values and texts for your user-defined characteristics if you only want these characteristics to have a fixed set of possible values.

You define characteristics in the Customizing step Maintain characteristics. When you define a user-defined characteristic, you need to specify the field type and length of its characteristic values. When you define such a characteristic, the system automatically generates a check table and a text table which are used to check what characteristic values are permitted.
