Copying data between two different planning areas using HCI

Dear IBPers,

I have the following problem: we want to copy data from one planning area (source) to another planning area (target) within the same SAP IBP in-the-cloud system. The two planning area have few differences in planning levels, but SHARE the same master data.

As there is no copy operator between two different operator, I am thinking to use HCI to perform this data copy.

Does anyone know whether and how it is possible to configure HCI to use IBP at the same time as source and target as well?

Any good hint?

    Hi Luca,

    In HCI once you select your IBP datastore as source you cannot select it as target as well.

    So you could create one outbound data flow from PA1 to flat file and then an inbound data flow from flat file to PA2.

    • I was not aware of any limitation, but now that you asked I have just checked.


      I generated an outbound file, HCI log shows me that ~1.3 million rows passed the filter criteria I put (KF value not null). Report was painted in ~8minutes.

      But checking the flat file that was generated i only see 1048575 lines (2^20) which seems to be excel limitation.I don`t know if or how we can overcome this.

    correction to this sentence: "As there is no copy operator between two different operator," I meant "As there is no copy operator between two different planning areas"..... 😊
