    Hi,

    First you need to know about the concept of master data and transaction data. While loading into DSO from data source it contains only transaction data not master data. for 0material it loads only primary key and it wont load master data into it. for 0material master data you need to load using master data sourses.

    for ex M001 is a material and it has navigation attributes are like 0COMPETITOR, 0DIVISION etc. when you load transaction data you will get only M001 in 0material. 0material_attr and 0material_text by using these two data sources you can load master data to 0material info object.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Read from master data in transformation comes into picture when there is no source data to transfer to target object.

    Refer to this READ MASTER DATA RULE TYPE IN TRANSFORMATION. this is the best example you can get.

    For 0BASE_UOM there is no data in sourcet so he is getting data from 0MATERIAL master data.

    Thanks

    Hi Sudha

    Thanks for your answers but if i want attribute means i can select as nav attribute check box and load master data means i can get data directly so why the necessity again to read from master data.

    • Hi,

      Lets say you have different info object in target and you need to get data to this from different info object attribute. in this case navigational attribute concept wont work.

      Thanks
