    Hi Kunal,

    Goto R/3 -> RSA6 -> Select the datsource -> edit -> in the list of fields for that datasource remove the "check flag" for the selection. Save the datasource.

    The other method would be to goto BW -> transfer structure -> Data str/transfer str -> You would find the selection check box there. Uncheck and activate the transfer structure/rules.

    Bye

    hi Kunal,

    try rsa6, point your datasource and 'edit',

    in datasource maintenance screen try remove checkmark from column 'selection' for that datasource and save the datasource and replicate again from bw.

    hope this helps.

    My friends thanls for your replies, the question wasn't clear. Its the standard field in DS, and my question is i don't need that field at all. Selection, Hide, Cancellation and Inversion is later part. Prior to that itself i want to do.

    Hi Kunal,

    For that you would have to goto LBWE and select the datasource and unselect the fields that you do not want.

      Hi Kunal,

      As suggested by the able gurus, if u hide it as well if you don't map it in BW then their is no problem becoz the field won't be populated in BW.

      removing it is a bit not suggested by SAP.

      thanks
