Can I enhance the extract structure with standard field.

Eg. If I want add(append) field PACKNO to Extraction structure MCVGIH. PACKNO is a field from standard table. So Can I do this and populate this without using abap code(customer exit) Should I give foreign key field also in the append stucture.

Please help me

hi Joe,

if field 'packno' is in the same table where the datasource extract, you can add the 'packno' in append structure of mcvgih without prefix zz and no need abap code (user exit zxrsau01) to populate the data, also no need to specify foreign key field. system will automatically fill 'packno' with data from the source table. hope this helps.

Hi Joe,

mostly it works as A.H.P explained, because in the extractor they mostly do a move-corresponding of the fields. Sometimes they don't, specially for newer applications and extractors because the abap statement move-corresponding is on the list of obsolete statements. In that case you need to do some coding.

So basically I would recommend to add the field, regenerate the datasource and check the result with rsa3.
