Master Data Load for New Attribute

Hi Users,

We had to implement a separate load flow for a new field coming from R3. This field was to be added to existing master data object.

I added a new Display attribute for an existing 0GL_ACCOUNT master data object.

This new attribute along with some other existing fields is getting data from another master data object with an infosource in between because two transformations cannot be created for same source and target.

When i load the data i dont see data being populated for this new field. I did ACR, checked the keys e.t.c.

Source object has data but after executing DTP no data comes to this attribute. No routines or anything.

Please suggest

Regards

Zabi

    Hi Syed,

    This new attribute along with some other existing fields is getting data from another master data object with an infosource in between because two transformations cannot be created for same source and target.

    Do you already have a transformation from the source IOBJ to your IOBJ? If so then consider using the existing (direct) path instead of the new transformation via the InfoSource.

    • Thanks guys for the suggestions..

      i got the catch..

      it was just that the new DTP was not using the info source flow i created. Instead was using the same flow.

      What i did was:

      Created new DTP and we have option of list selection in DTP where there are other existing transformations. I selected the new flow and executed.

      Seems working now.

      Assigning points.

      And routines will not help in this case. Its a typical scenario...

    Hi,

    Can you check your transformations for your newly added info object mapped to source field properly or not.Have you tested at source side, newly added field have data at source side or not.

    Thanks

    • Hi,

      The situation is:

      Field x from source maps to

      1. field y ( which was existing field ) and also maps to

      2. field z which is the new attribute.

      field y has to get updated for company codes 10 for example.

      field z for company codes 30.

      now if i use same flow and map field x to both y and z then there is overwriting happening if 10 does not have value for x and 20 has then its not good.

      So if i use a separate flow with infosource then i will map only x to z so after loads which means for 10 code if no value went in first dtp to y then if code 30 has value for x then z will only be updated and y remains empty....
