Transform DSO to InfoCube - Best Practice

Hi Expert,

I'm new to SAP BW and now is the using version 7.3

I would like to learn the proper way to make use of the DSO to create InfoCube

Below is a case :

Two transactional database tables from the Source System

Table : sales_hdr (Sales Order Header)

Order No (Primary Key)

Customer ID

Order Date

Sales office

Table : sales_dtl (Sales Order Detail)

Order No (Primary Key)

Order line No (Primary Key)

Item code

Qty

price

Two tables can be joined by the field order no

In this case, should i create two DSOs (one for Sales order header, one for Sales order detail with corresponding infopackage and DTP)

and then joining the DSOs by using Infoset. Finally, create transformation between Infoset and InfoCube?

Or, there is any other standard or proper way to handle two transaction tables.

The required structure of InfoCube:

Year

Month

Sales Office

Sales Amount <- key figure with sum aggregate

Kindly, give me some basic knowledge. thanks a lot.

Best Regards,

Keith

    Hi keith,

    Have you checked standard LO data sources(names - 2LIS_11_*) which are related to Sales applications.

    check those data source, after that you can look for standard dso/info cube and whole data flow.

    if standard dso/cube are not matched then think about custom targets creation.

    coming to your question:

    You can create view at SE11 by using two tables and create generic data source, load data into single dso and cube.

    about Generic extraction, get help from the Google.

    Thanks

    Two tables can be joined by the field order no : create view for these 2 tables based on order no in ECC/R/3 itself.


    Create Generic data source for that in ECC .


    Create Info cube for that data source fields & create Transformation b/w Data source & Info-cube you will get required structure as expected.

    Hi Experts,

    Thanks for the reply.

    May i further clarify my question.

    The source system is Non-SAP system, both sale_hdr and salr_dtl are sybase tables.

    Is it necessary to create view to join these two tables inside sybase first and then create a datasource for that database view in BW

    Alternatively, if i don't create a database view, so i need to create two data source and two DSOs? then how to join these two DSOs?

    Appreciated for your help.

    Best Regards,

    Keith
