Missing text (short/medium/long) in characteristic 0CUST_GROUP

Hi to all,

just another technical question.

I saw that all characteristics texts are missing in BW.

For example,(with an info package) i've loaded data in BW 0CUST_SALES info object. One of its attibute is

0CUST_GROUP. Checking the definition of the attribute, i saw that in the "Master data/text" tab, the field "with texts" is flagged and "Short text exists" is also flagged. The flag "Infosource with direct update" flag is set and the values is SD-IO. Now, if i make an se16 of the text table (BI0/TCUST_GROUP) there isn't any record (but in master data table there is more than one, so the loading job makes his work good).

How i can automatically load missing texts ?? Some posts writes on "creating generic data sources and point it to text table of the infoobject". But, where i can find some documentation to perform this task ?? (I know how to create a generic datasource, but i don't know ho to make the connection from it to BI0/TCUST_GROUP table).

And then.. i must do that for ALL text (tie to the attribute) that i'd like to see in BW?

Any good hint/help will surely rewareded.

Thx a lot

    Did you try creating an infopackage and use datasource 0CUST_GROUP_TEXT? Using this will pull the texts from R/3.

      Yes, with standard infosources provided by BW (those beginning with 0), if the infoobject was set up to contain texts, there is usually a datasource associated in R/3. When you create the IP, it will find the correct datasource.

      Hope this helps.
