    Hi Chowdary,

    As you know, function module code can contain anything to meet the requirement (static, cursor, etc). Based on your requirements, define all input fields as interface and final table as 'table' section of FM. Write ABAP to fill the datasource.

    Exact scenario may help to provide more details.

    Thanks

    Hi preetam

    Note the steps for generic extraction using Function Module.

    Go to RSO2 and give the Generic Data source name. The generic extrator can be for Transactional Data, Master Data or for Texts.

    Give the application component under which the generic data source falls, and give the description for the same.

    On the right side select the tab for 'Extraction by FM' and give the function module name and the extract structure which you have used for the function module.

    Save the data source, you will find the option for slection of the fields. Once done save data source which will in process generate data source.

    In BW side replicate the data source under the application component which you specified. and carry on the respective steps for BW modelling.

    hope this helps

    assing points if found useful.

    regards
