aggregated change pointer

Former Member

Hi

I've configured change pointers for batches. However, when I change a batch, a change pointer is created in tabla bdcp2 (aggregated change pointer) but anything change pointer is created in bdcp. Why?

We have a custom program that reads change pointer from bdcp, and therefore it is not working.

Thanks

From 6,20 on you can configure if the bdcp2 is used with TA BD60

From 7.1 up only bdcp2 is used always.

So its time to change your program.

Is there any note or documentation explaining this for this new version?

Thanks

Hi Alberto,

Change Pointers were stored in view BDCPV for old releases. starting with releases SAP_BASIS 711 and SAP_BASIS#701, Change pointers are stored in table BDCP2. See the below note.

Note 1244159 - Change pointers to be selected from table BDCP2.

So you need to replace the table with BDCP2 in place of BDCP.

Regards,

Ranjith.

When evaluating change pointers you should use standard SAP function modules CHANGE_POINTERS_READ and CHANGE_POINTERS_STATUS_WRITE to access and update the status of changes pointers respectively. Those function modules will ensure that the right tables are used depending on the customizing settings.
