    • Hi Sreeni,

      CIF Setup and the process to transfer data can not be explained in a short space.

      However the steps will be as follows:

      A) Technical Setup - RFC connections setup between APO and R/3 with appropriate RFC users set up etc. (normally done by BASIS team)

      B) Functional

      1. You need to create an integration model in R/3 Txn code CFM1.

      2. Generate the integration model and save it

      3. Activate the generated integration model Txn code CFM2 (if you want to do nin background use CFM3).

      4. Check for CIF queues in SCM Queue Manager in APO Txn code /SAPAPO/CQ

      5. If there are no CIF queues the data should have transferred from R/3 to APO

      Note the dependencies:

      1. Master data should be transferred first before trying Transaction data

      2. Master Data transfer is uni-directional (R/3 to APO only) while Transaction al Data is bi-directional

      3. Change transfers of Master Data needs to be setup either as a regular background job or carried out manually (CFP1 and CFP3)

      4. First transfer locations, then products followed by resources before trying to transfer production versions (which convert to PPM in APO). Purchasing Inforecords (that automatically create Transportation Lane in APO) can be transferred once Location and Products are transferred to APO from R/3.

      5. Ideally you must have separate integration models for different types of master data (like one for Location/Plants, another for Products, another for Resources/work centres etc.) and activate them in appropriate sequence. Also in case there is large volume of data have separate integration models by say location (each manufacturing plant has its own integraiton model) or set of products.

      This is only the starting point but refer to link provided by Emmanuel for more details. It has all the details of the points mentioned above.

      Thanks,

      Somnath

    Hi Sreeni,

    There are multiple ways to do this.

    1) Using CIF

    Check out the online documentation:

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_scm41/helpdata/en/97/954d3baf755b67e10000000a114084/frameset.htm

    2) Using flat files

    You can have an ABAP program in R/3 that will generate a flat file. This flat file will be sent to APO and will be loaded to an InfoCube using the BW flat file interface.

    3) Using Generic DataSources

    If you would be transferring data for custom tables, then generic datasources may help. Go to transaction RS02, create a datasource there, replicate the datasource in the BW APO side, then load the data using the BW functionalties.

    Hope this helps.
