If you set "Update Debbugging" you can debug the codes which works in update tusk.

SAP std often runs the routine (function or form) to update the database in update tusk mode, these routine start as soon as a commit work is done.

The commit is called at the end of the program, so you can't debug them by "normal debbugging" because it ends as soon as the program ends.

All the database updates are performed by the update work processes by calling the functions/subroutines in update tasks.

These tasks are executed after a commit work is reached in the application. By default you cannot debug these functions.

TO debug these u need to explicitly activate update debugging.
