Database access in update rules


Hi all,

I am planning to write an ABAP routine for a update rule. Now I want to know whether I can find out some data from some tables. These data are a part of my master data.

Let me explain; I have a field in the communication structure called BookID and two dimensions in the cube called BookID and AuthorName. Now both these dimensions are characteristic infoobjects with some master data already uploaded.

I have to write a update rule routine, where I'll fetch the AuthorName from the BookID. AuthorName is an attribute of BookID.

Can you tell me if this is possible? If yes, then which are the database tables I need to look at? Also, some code examples will really help.

If it's not possible, please suggest some way to do it. Currently I have AuthorName as "Master data attrib. of" BookID. But still it doesn't update the records. New records are being created with only BookID. No AuthorName.

Please help.
