Change Pointer for a custom HR message type

Hello All -

I have a requirement in which we are to capture the data for all the changes to a set of fields for the HR Master Data.

The problem with using the standard Message type HRMD_A has been that it just allows me to capture the changes to the specific segment. However, the requirement is that whenever a change happens all the data for that particular employee should be sent.

We thought to create a custom IDoc type with fields from different segments and attach a custom message type and activate the change pointers for this message type.

Now the questions that I have are:

1) Is this a correct approach or is there an alternative method to do this ?

2) When I am trying to capture the changes with my message type an entry is not getting created in the BDCPV. However, if I activate the changes for the standard Message the entry does gets created for a PA30 change in the table. Can anyone tell me how to get the entry created for my custom message type.

I plan to read the change pointers manually and then send the data through a custom structure using proxy communication.

Any responses would be appreciated.
