Info structures update

Hi!

I'm new to info structures (I'm otherwise ABAPer) and I'm probably not posting this question on the right forum. If so, please redirect me.

Anyway, here's the question:

How do I set an info structure to be filled with data on certain actions? My first idea (as ABAPer) is to use brutal force like user-exit and direct table insert. But I suppose that info structures were not ment to be treated this way, because otherwise they wouldn't differ from Z* tables. Does anyone know the proper way to do this(or proper forum for this question)?

Kind regards,

    Hi Igor,

    if I understood your question properly you are right: application admin/consultant is intended to set this in customizing. The effect of customizing is that tables and programs are created and activated.

    Example of this can be e.g. LIS - logistics information system. But it is getting obsolete I think - depends on the version (mySAP or R/3) you have.

    Hi Igor.

    I've done both and may be able to assist. I've only done the LIS structure to capture incoming orders and sales.

    Start here:

    SPRO

    Logistics General

    --Logistics Information System (LIS)

    -


    Logistics Data Warehouse

    -


    Data Basis

    Check the Information Structures and the Updating sections. Basically you either use an existing structure or create a new one. Then you have to go into updating and turn it on for that structure. Certainly it is more complicated that that but let's see how far you get reading in this section of SPRO.

      Thanks, Crew!

      TFCF seemed to be what I was looking for. But I can't find mysterious fields there neither. Is it possible to add fields to info struc in other way than by field catalogs? Or, is it possible to create field cat, add fields and delete field cat (would info struc still work)?
