How to find ECC tables related to BEx reports

Hi Experts,

Say we have one particular BEx query.

When we click the information tab it shows the technical name and also the multiprovider name on which a particular query is built.
Now if we LISTCUBE on multiprovider. we can find the Infoprovider supplying the data (0INFOPROV)
Second comes the datasources which are bringing the data into DSO/Cube from ECC.

Q) I am not able to find a way out to find what the tables in ECC involved from which a particular report
is showing the data in BW (say while reconciliation).
Would you like to suggest the correct approach or the best way in this regard??

Q) Can Extract Structres of these Datasources give the table information??

    Hi Aparajit,

    The easy way to backtrack the data is following the top down approach and there isnt any standard procedure to identify the source table unless you use all the standrd objects in BW and souce with zero customization

    - Identify the report for which you need to track the source table

    - Create a copy of it an enable the infoproviders in the rows/columns

    - Identify the Info object & key figure for which need to need to know the source and remove the rest from your output. With this you know the underlying DSO/CUBE for ths source of the data

    - Identrify the DSO/Cube is pulling data from ECC OR withing BW data providers

    - Once you know the untimate data source of the respecive DSO/Cube then check if its a custom/standard

    - There are many ways customizing the DS, if the DS is built on View you have the tables straight away, in case of FM check for whereused list to see if there are any underlying tables. (This will need to be done in your source system and not BW). Remember there might be customization in CMOD as well where the data is again extracted from other source tables
