PU12 or Change Pointers - which is better

Hi all,

Our Req is to track the changes in the infotype records which are valid as of today. The Receiver system would hold only one record at any point of time and it is valid as of today. But the sender system (SAP) may have Future or Past dated records.

Our approach for this would be using PU12 or Change Pointers.

If anyone of you worked with Change Pointers and/or PU12 for building interfaces from SAP to external systems using XI (proxy class calls), pls respond with the following queries.

--> Which one of these is a better approach?

--> In case of Change Pointers, how have you tracked and exported future dated and active back dated changes to the external interface.

--> Did you face any limitations with PU12/ Change Pointers approach.

Any help regarding this would be of great help.

    I don't know what PU12 do, but change pointer used to distribute only Master data.. Change pointer only generate an Idoc only for the changed fields rather for all the fields in idoc type..
