    Hi Sweta,

    Be careful with enhancing your DataSource with enhancement RSAP0001 or BAdI RSU5_SAPI_BADI. They will be called during the extraction from the RSA7 delta queue. If it concerns Z-fields which should never trigger a delta, it's OK. However, from my experience these Z-fields will trigger deltas which should be captured in the RSA7 delta queue.

    Therefore in my opinion, a much better approach is using the BAdI CRM_BWA_MFLOW. This BAdI is called by the middle ware and BWA (BW Adapter) before the delta records are determined and pushed to the RSA7 delta queue.

    Best regards,

    Sander

    • Hi Swetha,

      Is it true that SAP doesnt suggest / Support DS Structure enhancement ? do we have standard help documentation which i can use as a reference for my BI Team.

      SAP does support data source enhancement,

      If you are talking about SAP provided standard structures then answer would be yes, its not possible to enhance the SAP provided Structures.

      If you are looking to enhance your data source with business required fields then you can append your own structure and Enhance with the necessary fields.

      You can search in google there are lots of documents on Data source enhancements.

      Your BW resource is aware of the procedure you can check with them.

      If data source extract structure contains the fields but are hidden by SAP then you need to unhide those fields... not sure by unhiding the fields will be populated with values as SAP had hidden these fields might be for future releases or some fileds might get populated after unhiding them.

      You can check the below link for unhiding the hidden fields by SAP.
