LO User Defined Z fields Delta - CMOD / SMOD



We have implemented various user defined Z fields in SD Orders/Deliveries/Billing extractor. All Z fields have been added only to extract structure and coded in CMOD include. Since this was a smaller BW customer, we were doing all daily full loads till now. Recently, we decided to switch to delta loads as size is growing. Upon switching to delta loads, we realized none of the Z fields delta is getting captured because of only extract structure changes.

Researching further, I see if the fields were delta relevant then we should have enhanced communication structures instead (MCVABK/MCVAP etc). I also read that we need to handle before / after images in SMOD include which gets executed while saving a document. This could be huge change considering we have lot of user defined fields.

Any simpler route to switch from extract structure to communication structure enhanced fields?

Thought there are lots of pieces on SDN, I couldn't find good sample code.
