Transaction SE16 is a development tool.

Restrictions which are required in a production environment are not evaluated in detail by Transaction SE16. These restrictions are set via transactions SCC4 and SE03.

Generally, – in productive environments – a view should be created via Transaction SE54 for tables whose data must be maintained. Data maintenance is then carried out via Transaction SM30
