0PA_C01 extra line items or records...

Dear All,

I have been using Standard InfoCube: 0PA_C01 with Custom DSO and two standard DataSources (0HR_PA_0 and 0HR_PA_1). My data flow is as follow: DataSource:1 and 2:-->InfoSource1 and 2-->Custom DSO-->InfoCube. I had been using this InfoCube for last year or so. A week ago, I got a new requirement to fetch a new field from SAP ERP (Person block/lock) into BW. I successfully fetched the required field into DataSource: 0HR_PA_1 by adding to its "Append Structure". But during reporting I found that I have new Action Type which is blank and I found that some extra line items or records in BW for different Personnel Number, which I had not found in SAP ERP or in RSA3. Please find below screen shot:

1. Like in the above screen shot against "Personnel Number 149" there are two entries in BW for the same Fiscal Period or Calendar Year/Month. I'm unable to diagnose the cause of entry?

2. How to fix the problem? I have reloaded data as well?

3. In above screen shot one entry is with Action type and other is with blank Action Type why there is it so?

I will appreciate your reply.

Many thanks!!!

    Dear Tariq,

    For analysis

    1) hows your DSO data structured. I mean how are you brining in both HR_PA_1 & 0 data together in the custom. In normal cases there will be 2 records for an employee for a month - 1 from HR_PA_0 and 1 from HR_PA_1 ( depends on whether any action type was run for that employee in that month)

    2) When you reloaded are you getting this 2 lines in the DSO as well. There can be cases tht the blank one is loaded long back before all the logic was set

      Hello Ganesh,

      1. Thank you so much for your reply. Following are the screen shots of transformations of DataSources 0HR_PA_0 and 0HR_PA_1 with DSO.

      2. Following is the screen shot of DSO with Person Num: 149 having two entries for same period:

      3. I'm still unable to analyse problem and resolve it, please do advise me?

      Many thanks!!!

    I guess the record in the underlying DSO of that cube will have only one line for the above selection(149) as DSO overwrites the data which is not the case with the cube.

    I think you need to drop all the data of the cube and load it again from the DSO .
