I have created a DataSource for Equipment master classification attributes using transaction CTBW. The generated Extract Structure contains fields DATEFROM and DATETO but they are SAP hidden.
Is there a way to get time dependent values for a classification characteristic? We are on R/3 version 4.6C and BW30B . The extractor works fine for extracting the current value in effect for the characteristic, but the users need historical values also. Change pointer tracking is active for the characteristic in R/3.
Can you try to unhide (maybe update entry in the table ROOSFIELD-SELECTION ), maybe using ABAP?
Another option could be to enhance the extractor and then use the user-exit to populate the FROM and TO values.
For master data, normally you do not have historical information stored on R/3 (it is only a change pointer, not the complete change history) so how are you going to get this info?
I have classification data that I want to run a delta on. When the fields are changed, I want the delta to pick those materials up. I have added the classifications fields to 0MATERIAL_ATTR via tcode CTBW and can get the information to BW but when I change a record (classification only), no delta is preformed. When I change a material master field the regular delta executes as it is suppose to.
