What exactly leads to non-capturing of delta?

Dear Experts,

Technically speaking, how can it be reproduced a scenario where delta is not captured when a program is used to update a standard field in a SAP transaction data ?

I mean, what exactly is the cause that prevents delta from being captured?

You may have heard that in R/3, delta may not work all the time when program directly updates the transaction data.

So, I am using standard SAP program eg. the tcodes with a '2' (change) in it. But why is it this program can give delta but not the direct update?

eg. using the command 'update' [table] in abap.

Hope experts can advise what really is the reason for non-capturing (intermittent) of delta using direct update and how can it be simulated as I am unable to reproduce the problem as I do not know exactly why it sometimes does not capture delta.

So, this is a general question and not specific on any standard extractor (with or without enhanced fields).

Have a nice day.
