Key date in package link (BPC 10)



When setting up a package link (in BPC) containing packages loading from BW infoobjects, you specify a key date used for selection of time dependant characteristics in BW (for instance 0COSTCENTER).

When you create the package link, today's date is defaulted. However, when scheduling the package link to run on a regular basis, the key date is kept static. This means, it will not transfer the latest (time dependant data) but instead the records valid on the day of scheduling.

Right now, we are bypassing this by setting the key date in the future (e.g. '31.12.9999'). This however, has another short-coming future data are transferred instead of the data valid right now (for instance if cost centres are created with validity as of 2013.01.01 already now).

Is there any way to fix this problem (making the key data dynamic for instance)?


Kind regards,
