Change Pointers versus Logging

Hello Experts,

I have a question regarding regarding change pointers and infotype logging.

I noticed that infotype logging occurs for infotype 0001 not only when the infotype is changed via PA30/PA40 but also when organization, position etc, is changed via HR-OM integration (PO13), which is good and what we want.

But, we also have ALE/IDOC change pointer setup for message type HRMD_A, master data chages, which capture the changes to infotype 0001 as well, but it does NOT capture the change if organization, position etc, is changed via HR-OM integration (PO13).

1) why doesn't ALE/IDOC change pointers pick up this type of change?

2) is there a way for me to capture this type of change?

Thanks

Johnny

    infotype loggign is used for : audit purposes.

    Change pointers : used in ale/idoc.

    ale has different message types ffor pa and pd related data, so changes happening on the om front are usually captured in message type hrmd_aba uaually if the requisite config is in place.

    now infotype loggign is also configured in different tables for pa and pd objects,..

    given the above prespective, your doubts should have been resolved,.. if not do some research and get back here again.

    cheers

      Well,it is a concern or worry, when the Audit logging captures the change for infotype 0001 made via from OM (PO13), but the change pointer does not.

      If I am required to send "any" change made to infotype 0001 to the vendor using change pointers, the scenario I just described above will fail me.
