    I am not sure whetherI got you right..

    In SAPBW there is one fact table per cube & it can not be shared across cubes. Dimensions are very much integral part of Cube (extended star model) & these too can not be shared across cube.

    Not sure whether it helps.

    Hi,

    You can use two cubes with different fact tables. Or, if your first level is an aggregation of the second one, you can use ODS for keeping detailed data on item (document level) and a cube for aggregated data.

    Best regards,

    Hi!

    I think it would be more clear if you can describe with a scenario.

    with regards
