Change Pointers....

Hello Everybody,

How can we "Distribute" HR Employee Master Data.

<b><i>Below is what i tried:[/</i>b]

I was not able to find any standard Change document Object for Employee Master, so created one via SCDO and after that i created a custom message type and configured BD50 & BD52 for that message type specifying my object type.

But most of the data elements are not Change document enabled, so CP are not getting generating for those fields and i am stuck..

Will appreciate if somebody can help me on this.

    Hi Jeet,

    Actually your problem is not so very difficult. SAP has a standard tool for interfacing HR master data using a predifined IDoc and ALE environment.

    Take a look at the IMG (SAP customizing, transaction SPRO) and follow this path:

    Basis Components > Application Link Enabling (ALE) > Modeling and implementing Business Processes --> Predefined ALE Business Processes --> Human Resources

    Use the Auto-Customizing option to initially setup customizing.

    Under the option 'Master Data Distribution' you will find many specific details for transferring the data.

    If you read the IMG documentation that comes with the choices you will have a good clue on what to do.

    Hope this gives you a start,

    Hi Jeet,

    HRMD_A is the standard message type to distribute HR master data.

    If u need to activate change-pointers, follow these steps :

    1.) activate change-pointers globally in BD61

    2.) activate change-pointers for HRMD_A in bd50

    3.) In bd59,assignment of object type to message type is already available, if u want to add new fields, add here.

    Configure the new ALE model system with hrmd_a as message type.

    If u need to use custom message type,

    1.copy the latest version of idoc type hrmd_a06 into ZHRMD_A06.

    2.create a new message type(ZHRMD_A) in we81

    3. Assign the relationship between message type, idoc type in we82.

    zhrmd_a zhrmd_a06.

    4.create a entry in BD60 as follows:

    zhrmd_a refers message type hrmd_a.

    5. in bd59, copy the entries of hrmd_a into zhrmd_a and save.

    6. activate changepointers globally

    7. activate changepointers for new message type zhrmd_a in


    8. create a new ale model system for message type zhrmd_a with required filters.

    please let me know for any concerns.
