Start Routine Data Deletion


Dear Experts,

Good Day!

We have a custom data source which is not delta capable. But, the data will be changed periodically.

In order to behave this data source as delta capable, we are loading this data periodically (1h interval real time timestamp) with some workaround.

That is, records that are fetched from the data source in the 1h interval are taken and deleted from the target DSO beforehand by a start routine.

Once the records are deleted in the start routine, the new data is then loaded to the target.

Problem is, the above methodology is not recommended by SAP, as it requires deletion of entries in the same database table, for which the data is about to be loaded.

Any ideas on how to overcome this or how to alternatively work this out as a standard practice is highly appreciated.

Let me know for any clarifications and I'm happy to elaborate.

Br, Harish
