XML Export and Import

Hi

I knew that BW metadata can be trasformed using XML Using export and Imoport but how to make selection of set of BW objects through metadata export and import in XML format.

For example i would like to export some 10 infoobjects to the PC WORK Station and would like to Import the same XML file to another BW system.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    You can do it from RSA1 -> Transport Connection.

    Under XML->Export, choose "InfoObjects by Application components". Then select the ones that you need to export and drag on the right pane.

    Once you finish collecting all the InfoObjects, click on the "Export as XML" button and it will generate the XML.

    Hope this helps.

      I think you are referring to the "XML Import/Export" menu under Extras.

      That menu is not specific to Metadata repository but also available when you go to Transport connection tab.

      Basically it is one more way to do xml import/export. However, here you need to specify object name & type. Whereas in transport connection you can drag & drop.

      Hope it helps.
