Infotype Logging on IT0000 - BEGDA not avalibale

Hi all,

I have been using infotype logging since a very long time. I noticed a peculiar thing which I had not before, since I never had this requirement.

Infotype logging does not allow logging to be performed on BEGDA ( in T585B table ) . Becuase of this, I am facing a peculiar issue.

If an employee is performed the same action(MASSN) with the same reason for action(MASSG) with different begin dates(BEGDAs) it does not get logged. A PERNR who gets promoted twice in a year will not have this recorded in IT0000 since everything except BEGDA remains the same to his prior record and IT logging cannot be done on BEGDA changes.

For example - this are the records in IT0000 for an employee


1) 00010000 Z1 01 03/01/2009

2) 00010000 Z2 01 03/01/2010

3) 00010000 Z2 01 08/01/2010

Z1 - new hire 01 - new position

Z2 - Position change - 01 Promotion

Infotype LOGS for IT0000

Record 1 and 2 appear in the logs. Record 3 does not get logged since record 2 and 3 are the same except for BEGDA. And since BEGDA is not available for logging, BEGDA Changes are not considered for logging.

has anyone faced this issue earlier
