Generic Extraction from R/3

Hi all,

I tring to do generic extraction from a customised table from R/3 with time stamp as the delata field.

Is there any special setting to be done in R/3 side, so that after initilisation load, when ever new data is added to the customised table, it should also come in to the delta queue for the data source.

Regards,

Padma

    Any activity performed on R/3 must update the timestamp field to let delta pick up changed records.

      Hi,

      It is not necessary that timestamp should be keyfield. The thing is the field should change frequently! when every you make changes in old record to or create a new record.

    HI padma,

    For delta , you have to find any

    timestamp or calendar,numberic pointer field in your custom table, so that you can enable delta.

    Hi,

    no, there is no specific setting in R/3 for the delta field, except perhaps the safety limit...

    This will depend on the target object in BW.. If it is an ODS with overwriting update rules then you can set a sfety time <> 0.

    If you have a cube summarizing the data, you should have your safety time = 0. You'll then have the risk that entries won't be picked up...

    For further information press F1 in the generic delta fields "safety Upper" and "Safety lower"...

    hope this helps....

    Olivier.
