    If you haven't gone through this doc from Metalink, then here it is [ID 1085140.1]. It's briefly explained about the GETUPDATEBEFORES and also your specification. Hope this works.

    Rows can be ignored rather or discarded rather than sent to the database if before/after filters are used in the replicat. This can cause the amount of data to be sent to the database to be reduced if certain data is not changed. This is of use in high volume instances where not all row changes are useful.

    There are two parts to it.

    First, on the Oracle side, supplemental logging has to be enabled for all the columns you are going to use in the target table. The up side of this is that you won't need to check if a column is present with your function. In fact, that was part of the problem.

    add trandata tab8811s cols ( name, city, state)

    Second, you need to compare before after images with @streq. Here is my sample:

    REPLICAT r8811
    reperror 21000, discard

    SOURCEDEFS e:\gg\Teradata\DIRDEF\def8811.def
    DISCARDFILE e:\gg\teradata\discards\r8811.txt, PURGE

    TARGETDB vmprime_mzerger, USERID mzerger, PASSWORD mzerger

    -- if name and city are both unchanged, do not replicate update

    MAP mzerger.tab8811s
    TARGET mzerger.tab8811t,
    filter (
    on update,
    ((1 = @streq (, name)) ) AND
    ((1 = @streq (, city)) )
    raiseerror 21000
