This is an update in old blog https://blogs.sap.com/2014/01/20/sap-charm-basic-business-transaction-table-storage-diagram/#comment-396043
The account is deactivated and the diagram was removed when that happened. Somebody asked for the diagram again, so here is goes.
We created a small basic diagram that shows the main tables related to ChaRM where the Business Transaction data gets stored.
Two main component sets are part of the diagram:
- Business Partner, where you find the tables with data related to the BP, identification, HR related information, etc.
- Transaction, where you find the tables that store most of the Business Transaction related data, including our own customer developments.
It is important to mention that within each box, we placed the main table fields that server as connectors between tables, following the arrows. Kind of foreign keys.
There is still an extra resource you may already know. The report CRM_ORDER_READ. In that report, you provide a Business Transaction and you will obtain the list of tables that contain records that pertain to that BT in particular. Unfortunately, the report does not give you a connection between an RfC (ZMCR) and its own Change Objects (ZMMJs), or between either of them and their date field values. At that moment is when the provided diagram gives you the complementary assistance to hook up the pieces together.
We hope the diagram becomes beneficial for you and any feedback to make it better is very much appreciated.
If you need a better resolution, please let me know and I will try to do my best to get it for you.
