Hello BW Experts,

For a generic datasource involving the sales order data what is the best option for the delta type timestamp / calender day / numeric pointer. I am in the opinion of the timestamp as the records are based on timestamp. let me know if I correct.

yes, it's depend on the extract structure (your table/view/fm), F1 info :

1. Time stamp - The field is a DEC15 field which always contains the time stamp of the last change to a record in the local time format.

2. Calendar day - The field is a DATS8 field which always contains the day of the last change.

3. Numerical pointer - The field contains another numerical pointer that appears with each new record.

hope this helps.
