As we all know the Controlling Data Sources delta data load work with a default safety time interval of 2 hours.
However, the customer wants to see the latest possible data in the BI/BO reports. Which requires changes to be made to the extractor with the standard safety time interval to bring the latest data from ECC and to be updated in the BW system.
Caution : As this is the standard behavior of the extractor SAP does not recommend in changing the control table parameter settings.
Control Table settings changes are performed at own risk.
The below table values are defined to over come the 2 hours extraction safety belt to 60 Mins.
This would be of great help for the Finance team/Business users when they are running their MEC (Month End Closure) Process.
Control Table settings for CO Data sources are little different than the FI data sources when implementing custom safety interval extraction/minute based extraction.
Transaction Code and Table
SE11 – BWOM_SETTINGS.
The last parameter value “MOSTRECENT =X” which is not applicable for the FI data sources this is the key difference between FI and CO when changing the extraction time limits.

Hope this helps…
