Unit of Measures.

HEllo Experts.

In our R/3 systems we have 3 Ztables. Each tables holds 3 different quantities with different UOMs. We created Generic data source for that tables. In BW we created 3 different ODS for each tables.

At the time of creating the Info objects for the fields in R/3 for Quantity fields, we gave 0UNIT as UOM.

Example in table 1:

1. Field In R/3 is (HCMGRQTY) and UOM is Meins(LACS)

Infoobject in BW (ZHCMGRQT) and UOM is (0unit)

2. Field In R/3 is (AVGWT) and UOM is Meins(KGS)

Infoobject in BW (ZAVGWT) and UOM is (0unit)

When mapping in transfer rule, we can map 0unit to only one field in R/3, for the other fields i am leaving blank as i cannot use the same object twice in same transfer rule.

Q1. Now will i face any problem if i dont assign any object to that particular field?

Q2. we have three different ODS in the same way and this three ODS are used as source to one Main ODS. In update rules of each source 0unit is getting updated. I want to know how will this 0UNIT get updated when it comes from three different ODS. Hope i am clear. Thanks in advace

    1 - You are mapping your KFs to corresponding fields, and 0UNIT is automatically mapped to the corresponding unit. If there are 3 datasources (is it so?), I do not see any problem. If it is the same datasource extracting data from the 3 tables (like a inner join or view), you are essentially bringing only one UOM and assigning it to the three KF - a totally incorrect situation.

    2 - This is dependent on the above. If you are not bringing the data correctly, you will not be getting the right values in your main ODS.
