    Hi,

    Generic delta with numeric pointers will give you only new records and not the changed one. There is simple reason behind that if you check your last delta value in RSA7 you will see the last updated record or most recent document number or numeric pointer number and the next extraction will happen from that number onwards only.

    If you want to get changed records as part of your delta than you will have to go for some time stamp related delta mechanism.

    Numeric pointers related delta will be used in cases where for every change you are going to create a new document with reference to original document.

    Hi

    Pointers are something which are directly referring to the memory space to which the value of the variable is stored.

    So this memory space only holds the new data , which is changed so u cannot get the changes.
