Infocube clarify me


Hi Gurus,

Iam really confused with the cube and ods. can any one explain me clearly.

i knew that cubes are used for summarzied data and ods is used in detail reporting and its has the cabability of overwriting.

here iam giving a scenario like just explain me what happens.

Suppose if u have records in source sytem like below ,

when we load to ods how they will be and when u load in cube how they will be?

1st Package


OrdNum OrdItem OrdQty

1 440 5

1 530 3

2 200 3

3 440 2

2nd package


OrdNum OrdItem OrdQty

1 530 3

2 200 3

3 210 5

4 440 1

if there are two infopackages loaded one after the other

how will be the data in Ods and infocube and If compression how data will be cube after compression.

If iam wrong anyone explain me with the example like above

Thanks in advance and points are rewarded.
