Delta based on new field for Change pointers

Hi Experts...

We have BW data source 0MATERIAL_ATTR which is based on change pointers on message type MATMAS.

We have added new field to the BW data source and we want to make this field delta enable.

Do we need to enter this new field to CDPOS and CDHDR tables to define delta..?

I was reading some document, it says

The decision whether a field modification is relevant for a change document is

triggered by a flag of the modified fieldu2019s data element. You can set the flag with

SE11 by modifying the data element.

Please let me know.

This questions is very good opportunity for those who want to show their expertise.

Here is the scenario.

We have master data source called 0ABCDFE_ATTR ( Example). This is delta.

I have added the ZFIELD to the append structure and populated with that.


0001- Hello

We did the full load and process the delta, everything is fine.

But cusotmer has changed the ZFIELD for old data ( this is not new record).


0001- Good bye

This changed image is not coming into BW with delta.

Fortunately this is not extracted into BW since it old record..?

Any ideas ..? how to get the latest image for ZFIELD although its old record that exists already in BW.
