For testing purpose we posted some FI documents in R/3(Devlopment) side using tcode F-02
after that we used tcode RSA3
Update mode: D
Target System: BIWXYZ
after extraction we could view the posted enteries...
after 1 day(As FI data gets available in queue after 24hrs) we tried to view the same in delta queue using tcode RSA7 but its not being reflected over there
RSA3 picks the record from the delta queue which in turn for the FI data source shows the records which are part of delta.
FI data source do not use the delta queue and store records into that like LO data source
There are delta is triggered by the API's....that is at the time when the infopackage is scheduled in BW the delta entries are pulled based on timestamp and before that they are not stored anywhere separately.
So the entry in delta queue for FI data sources tells that init is done for the data source and delta can be scheduled...but there is no such mechnisam or periodic jobs to push the records from the FI tables to extractors as in the case of LO data sources and where we see the records in RSA7...therefor wwe dont see records in delta queue for the FI data sources and this is how FI data sources are designed.
once the delta is scheduled then the records are kept for the purpose of repeat delta and this most probably you can see if you use the delta repetition in RSA7 display...but i think its not possible even there..
Please check the table BWOM2_TIMEST & BWFI_AEDAT, because When a delta dataset has been selected successfully, the SAP R/3 system logs two time stamps that delimit a selection interval for a DataSource in table BWOM2_TIMEST:
With this parameter, you can set the retention period of entries that are no longer required in time stamp table BWOM2_TIMEST. The default setting for deletion of entries that are no longer required in the time stamp table is 60 days. The minimum retention period for entries in the time stamp table is 15 days. When entries are deleted from table BWOM2_TIMEST, the corresponding entries for the changed FI line items are deleted simultaneously from log table BWFI_AEDAT.
Hope it helps and clear
