    Hi Vasu.

    1) If you have initialised after the transaction in R/3 you could not have in susequent delta these data, you will have these data/transaction in the Init Package. You can have in delta only the changes to these data/transaction.

    2) Initialization makes a snapshot of the data actually in the system and then determine the new and the changed records starting from that snapshot for the delta. It technically works in different ways if it is a standard extractor for FI-CO, or if it is a standard extractor for Logistic or if it is a Custom extractor.

    Ciao.

      Hi vasu.

      If you had an Init without data transfer you will upload in BW only the transaction posted after the Init, with the delta package.

      Init without data transfer only produce a snapshot in R/3, to start the delta process, but only the subsequent data will be transferred to BW, the previous will be stored only in R/3.

      If you want also previous data to be transferred in BW you have to re-init (starting from BW or R/3 depending by the type of extractor).

      Ciao.

    Vasu

    As you know we don't have to do initialization every time this one time job and later on Delta functionality will bring what ever the changes/postings you have done in R/3 side when ever you scheduled Delta infopackage.

    Hope this helps

    hi Vasu,

    then you will get these transactions in delta.

    hope this helps.

      Hello Vasu,

      If it is a LO datasource, and if you have transactions posted at 10 a.m, you need to fill the setup tables after 10 a.m. Then if you run init in BW, you will have these records in BW.

      Also if you run Init without data, you will have these records in subsequent delta.

      yes, you r right that init will setup a marker beyond which all new records will be taken care in delta. But in case of Init without delta and with no selections specfied, the system will pull all the records in the subsequent delta.

      Hope it helps..

      thanks,

    hi Vasu,

    can we know what datasource are you using ?

    coz it can depend on datasource used, e.g for LO-cockpit bw init will take data from setup table filled.

    for other datasource that not using fill setup table,

    you may get these transactions along with the initialization.

    hope this helps.
