    Hi Axel,

    datamart concept has been already explained, but don't forget that in myself datasource you have to include also all the generic datasources created by you in RSO2 (as in R/3 !) and all datasource provided by business content (as in R/3 !), as all technical content objects to monitor all BW statistics.

    Only datamart (in order to transfer records from a provider to another, ODS, cube and so on...) generates 8* datasource that are "autogenerated"...

    Hope now is clearer...

    Bye,

    Roberto

      Scenario ?

      You have an ODS with some record inside...now, you want to transfer this records to an higher level (let me say, a cube), to pass from document detail (in your source ODS) to company code detail (in your target cube).

      Right-click on the ODS, generate export datasource, then you can build the update rules for your cube by using 8*(name of your ODS) datasource (you can find it in datamart section in infosource page and load data from there)...

      Bye,

      Roberto

    Hi,

    Myself datasource will comes into picture when ever u r updating the data within the system i.e say u r updating the data from one data target to other one within ur system. We can even call it as a data mart scenario.

    (The BW system feesing data to itself is called as myself data mart. This is created automatically, it uses ALE for data transfer)

    when ever u r generating the data marts at the first time then u have to replicate the generated datasources sources from the myself sources system.

    Regards-

    MM
