Change to COPA Reporting

Hi All,

Whats the best way to change an existing COPA DataSource with new value fields, but without losing the delta? I do not want to do a user exit as I would have to extend the transfer/extractor structure for the new value fields and loose the delta inits. I am adding only new KFs to the COPA cube. It takes 3-4 days to reinitialise so want to avoid delta reinits.

Can I create a new DataSource and map to new InfoSource with the same characteristics but with the new value fields? I plan to reinitialise this new DataSource from the next period onwards. Has anyone does this before?

Thanks!

    Thanks for the replies.

    I am aware than COPA DataSource can not be modified. I want to avoid re-creating as I would loose the delta inits. The same with user exits too, as I would have to modify the extract structure and replicate the DataSource.

    One option is to create new DS from COPA and a new delta init, leaving the old one as it is.

    Would this pose a problem?

    Thanks.

      Hi,

      I did a delta init without data transfer successfuly. I could see the delta queue in RSA7 but when I ran the delta update infopackage it failed with error -> Delta update only possible with status "Update successful".

      The DS was shown only as Generated with time stamp information as 0.

      I deleted the delta init and redid it with data transfer and it started working fine. The stauts of the DS was Update Sucessful with a time stamp.

      Does'nt COPA extraction support init without data transfer.

      Any idea why this is happening?

    Hallo and welcome

    Which plug-in are you using? Have you noticed that COPA datasource cannot be changed? you need to delete the exisitng one and create a new one if you follow the standard from transaction KEB0. the best then that you do it when everythign is locked on R/3 side in order to make an init without data and then again delta.

    I hope this can help you.
