    Hi Sravan,

    Try using Sy-datum for date and sy-uzeit for time. you can see the dataelements for these system variables from SYST structure.

      Hi everyone,

      You are all right (of course :-D). Just a detail: I recommend you to write "get time." just before assigning "sy-datum" and "sy-uzeit" to your variables. If you don't, you'll be assigning the same date and time for all the records you update/insert into the database.

      I hope it helps. BR,
