A change pointer reads change documents for object classes ( Material, CUstomer etc) and sends IDOCs/ files to the receiving system. This is scheduled as a Background program. This is mainly used for Master data.

A message control uses your output determination procedure to trigger Files/Idocs.

This is mostly used for transaction data such as Sale orders/ Billing docs etc.

Pls reward if answer useful.
