    Hi Pradeep,

    Event chains were renamed event collectors.. these are like AND, OR processors in the Process chains..

    U can use the Event driven Process chians.. where u can create Events in SM62 and these events can be triggered in SM64 or from any programs..

    U can check the following Links..

    Hi Pradeep,

    Event chains were in use in before BW 3.0 when Process chains did not exist. It could still be used. Infact even the process chains use the same concept although the events are created by the system themselves.

    Event Chains - Typically an event chain uses an event to trigger a job. Now when the job runs and gets completed it gain triggers an event and it goes on until the load process gets completed. Events are created in SM62 and the jobs are created in SM36. In the job creation you can define the condition how the job starts and what needs to be executed. Typically in event chains ABAP programs were extensively used. The ABAP programs used o contain the fn module BP_EVENT_RAISE for triggering an event.

    Process chain - http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/8f/c08b3baaa59649e10000000a11402f/frameset.htm

    Hope this helps.

    Bye
