0SOURSYSTEM as Attribute vs Compounding


Hi BW Experts,

I have a requirement where in a new R/3 system will be connected to the existing BW system .

I read in the forums about using source system ID as compounding object to get unique records from diff source system.

But one thing i still am not clear is , cant we use 0SOURSYSTEM as an attribute instead of using as coumpounding ?

Could someone please tell me why we cant use it as an attribute? I dont think overwriting data in infoobject should be a problem since the source system would be different. Pls correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks a lot in advance
