start routine help (ABAP)

I have never written a start routine. I would like to exclude some document types from getting into a ODS. can some one tell me how i will exclude them from a data packet (sample code is what i am looking for).

Another question

I would like to include a Z-field, which basically tells the user that an order header is open/partial/ closed. To do this , i have to compare my document no in the orders ODS to a billing ods, to see if a billing number has been created for that particular order number. In that way i will know that the status is closed if billing number is present. Where do i build this logic into??? in the update rules for the Z-object or the start routine??? Do u have to create a infopackage from the billing ODS to do this???? Will be great if someone could throw light on this in detail...sorry for the long post........

The Answer to your first question is a simple one line code


Where KA is the doc type you want to exclude..

For the second question..see if you can apply this logic on R/3 side..

If you try to do this in BW got to make sure that the Billing ODS is loaded prior to loading this ODS with the Z object..

Hope it helps..
