Selection in Infopackage

In an enhanced data source with an appended field, I enable the checkbox: 'selection' in the maintenance screen. I have written the logic to populate the append in the customer exit. Will a selection in the infopackage for this appended field still work?

I thought the selection in the source system was done before the data enters the customer exit.

    Hello Elangovan,

    it depends on the extractor. All selection criteria are passed to the extractor. But usually the fields that are actually used for the selection are hardcoded into the extractor and append fields will not be taken into consideration. Therefore you have to do the filtering yourself.

      Thanks Marc,

      I am little confused now on seeing your 'depends on the extractor'. Could you let me know the exceptions...
