Change document flag in data element

Hi All,

What exactly the purpose of Change document flag that has been associated with the data element? How it keeps track of changes done to that particular field can some body explain in detail please.

Hi Mahesh,

There are change document objects which register changes to SAP objects like Order, material etc. If you consider an order, you then need to assign the Change document object to SAP tables (VBAK, VBAP)..

This means this CD object will now track changes to vbak and vbap and log them.

Now comes the question as to which fields should it track. Because it would be a pain if you are going to track a vbak table by all its 40-50 fields. So only important and business relevant fields need to be tracked. So this flag that you are talking about is the same one.

It is at a data element level.

Hope this clarifies.

Reward points, if this answered your question.
