Issue with 0MAT* series of extractors

Our SAP ECC System uses retail transactions like MM41,42 etc
instead of MM01,02. But the base tables are MARA,MARC etc (conventional
tables).

We observe the delta executions for data sources like
0MATERIAL_ATTR, 0MAT_PLANT_ATTR are not bringing in the changed/new records.
Whereas the extractors 0ARTICLE_ATTR, 0ART* series are bringing in delta.

We also ran the corrections mentioned in SAP Note 383430
“Retail: Master data upload for 0MATERIAL delivers 0 records”. But the issue
was not resolved.

1. Does the use of Retail Transactions like MM41, MM42 for
Article changes and Site extensions of Articles decide which set of Master data
datasources are to be used?

2. Any approach on how to enable deltas for 0MAT*
series of master data extractors?

Regards

Jeya

    Hi Jeya,

    For 0MATERIAL* extractors the change object is MATERIAL, therefore no changes are written into BDCPV (the changes are not written into CDPOS), if you make changes in MM41 or MM42.

    Since DS 0ARTICLE_* datasource persist, the note 383430 is obsolete
    you should use 0ARTICLE* to extract the delta records.

    Thanks,

    Vimal

    Hi Selvam,

    As you might be knowing it works on Change Pointer Concept for these data sources .

    Have you migrated all the change pointers as per the recommendation in the upgrade guide to 701 and note 1165059.

    It can be the case that these are not migrated to new location BDCPV from BDCP2 .

    To clean down these entries the report RBDCPMIG_ALL_WITHOUT_MIG_FLAG needs to be run and then the report RBDCPCLR needs to be executed.

    Please check and see.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks

    Hi

    As you already discovered you need to use 0ARTICLE_ATTR for retail. The corrections you where looking at are not relevant for your system.

    hope that clarifies

    Martin
