Basic capabilities:

Multiple windows – you can open as many tables as you need or as much as your monitor resolution allows. You can open the same table multiple times.

Reactivity – update data as soon as you press Enter, select a function or select multiple data. You do not need to take a step back and lose context to change the selection conditions.

There is a lot of information in SAP, so the empty columns are hidden by default. You can display them if you like. Comparison of visual size of the same table.

Multilingualism. All languages installed in the system are supported. Column and table names are translated into the selected language. In addition, you can select technical field names as headings.

Double click on the selection field will open the standard help.

If you need to quickly track the relationships of several tables, you can select the entire column with the data of one table and drag it to the selection field of another table. The data in the source table columns are turned into buttons. In the receiver table, an inheritance indicator appears next to the column. In this way, you can revive a data model from several tables in just a minute.

Double click on all fields (blue link) will open a reference table with the contents by external key. The green links imply special processing:
