Delta update for master data

Hi all,

I was scheduling the master data upload and i found that few master data objects (like 0customer, 0material) have the option of delta update while others dont have. is there any reason that few has delta option and few dont have? Where do they decide/ set this option?

If any one lets me know about this, it would be really helpful. Thanks in advance.

    Hello Ram,

    In RSA6 in r/3, double click on say 0material_attr datasource.

    you can see the field Delta update checked. This determines that the datasource can support delta.

    it depends on the no. of records. For a datasource with huge amounts of records, delta option is normally enabled.

    Hope this helps..

    thanks,

    Hi,

    basically this is depending on the amount of data to load. So it makes perfectly sense to do a delta for customers, material ... as you can have millions of them. For company code, plant ... you only load a few records, so it is not worth creating a delta enabled extractor.

    hi Ram,

    for business content datasource, the delta capability is determined/predefined by SAP.

    if it's delta-enable, we will choose delta to reduce volume data extracted. we do this by first create infopackage with option 'initialize delta process' (tab 'update'), then create another infopackage with option 'delta update' with periodic run scheduled.

    hope this helps.
