generic timestamp

Hi Experts,

I will be creating a generic extractor on an FI line items table, via a view.

If I set the generic extractor to use timestamp for delta, how will timestamp field be populated in the line items table? Will it be having a name like 'ztimestamp'?

I know there will be timestamp when I set that but how is it realised technically?

Hope you can help explain me.

A Timestamp must be a field that allows BW to set a time control over new records created in this case it would be a field with creation date or something like that.....this allows that generic delta load data using as reference the last timestamp loaded and load only records that have a timestamp higher.....

Usually timestamp is a date field and i not needed a special name

I hope this helps you
