Why a custom field in table EKKO has no data element?
We found a custom field, e.g., called Z1 in table EKKO, but find it's data element is null in this table even if it's a Char type and length is 50 and also with a description.
We go to SE11 to try to find it's defination by looking for the data element and data type, but neither exists for these two of this field Z1. How this kind of field was defined? And if it doesn't have any data element, how was it be created in table EKKO?

You can have either "Built-in Type" button or "data element" button.
What i meant was,you can create your own data element & attach it to the field or give the field type,length & description there itself with out creating a data element for the field.
