Change pointer for custom message type


I have a situation where in, i need to create a custom message type and need to track the changes in the table fields using the Change pointer technique.

Can anybody guide me as to what are the step to be followed after i create the custom message type and how to register the fields of the message type ?

Note : Change document (CDPOS) technique is ruled out in my requirement.

    Once you create custom message type ,you add this message type entry in BD50 transaction.Then using BD52 transaction define which fields should be selected to create this message type IDoc.Give the reference table field names .So any change in listed fields will trigger this custom message type IDoc.

    Hope this helps.

      You need to activate the message type for Change pointers enabled in the transaction code BD50 by selecting the check box and also you need to maintain the message type, sender and receiving system in the Distribution Model BD64 apart from maintaining the partner profiles.
