Adding InfoObject for Source of Data

Hi, I am making changes to a legacy InfoCube that loads from two different sources.

I thought as an improvement I would add an InfoObject to store which source a record came from. Example: ZDSOURCE 14 LEN. Or I could user the Business content InfoObject 0TCTDSOURC. The field of course would be coded with a constant as the data is loaded.

Anyone see one way or the other as a better approach?

    This definitely helps you should you have to analyze where the data came from we have that implemented in some of our cubes which combine data from two sources. You could use the content as well as your own object which you fill with a constant.

    hope that helps

    If source system information is coming from ECC system, you can use FM 'RSDG_ID_GET_FROM_LOGSYS' in transfermation rule.

    Since you would code with a constant, this is right approach. You can use Business content InfoObject 0SOURSYSTEM insted 0TCTDSOURC.
