Automating the Delimiting process for a record in infotype

Hello ,

In infotype 0021 , if a child reaches a certain age then it gets delimited and a new one subtype is created.

Can this delimitation of the record automated?

    you need ABAP program which to be scheduled as daily backgound job, which can check and delimit the infotype with the help of BDC.

    Although I never tried it, however, it should be possible through Dynamic Action.You can compare the DOB with system date and the moment it becomes say for example 18 years, it should delimit the data of child.And in same action you can add steps to create a new infotype subtype and copy the relevant values from the previous subtype...

    Best wishes.

    I belive that is not the functional module you need to use.

    And more over dynamic action is also not possible

    As of my knowledge Dynamic action is an action automatically done by the system based on the user action.

    But we are not performing any kind of action over. We are not doing any initiation of action.

    How dynamic action will get fired

    If i am wrong please correct me experts

    Regards

      Hello,

      The situation here is I want a utility which everytime (in background or foreground ) checks the DOB with the system date and calculate the total number of years. That is we need to firstly whether there is a record in the infotype 21 with subtype as child.If yes,

      then we need to check if the total number of years meets the triggering condition.

      If anytime such situation arises then we have to automatically delimit the subtype child record and insert a new record with same data.

      I am new to dynamic actions and also to BDC programming. Can you please help with the algorithm of the program and steps in dynamic actions?

      Thanks.
