Data transfer

Hi -

We have some field types and their values of a table in r/3 to be transferred to bw.

There are 5 field types (Z1, Z2, Z3, Z4, Z5) and there is a corresponding fixed value for each field type for a given record. Ex: Z1 means DEPT1, Z2 means DEPT2, Z3-DEPT3, Z4-DEPT4, Z5-DEPT5). These are fixed.

There are 8 generic fields in the table (Ex: Fld1, Fld2 etc) which store the field types. Any field can store any field type.

In r/3, when I select a record it looks:


Z1 E-Advertising


Z2 Marketing Initiatives


Z5 Field Campaigns


00 0000


00 0000


Z4 Automation


Z3 Public Relations

(So, the actual values of Z1 (which has a meaning of DEPT1) is E-Advertising, DEPT2 is Marketing Initiatives, so on..)

We need the data to be trasferred into BW. There are no business content objects that I can use and transfer that data. Since the generic fields do not have to store the field types consistently, users enter these the field type in whichever field they like.

Will a infoobject with the field types and field values as attributes serve the purpose. How should the data validations be done in the start routine ?

Can I use a start routine which reads the records and if it finds a field type "Z1" in any of the fields for a record, checks it as DEPT1 and transfers it to the transfer structure field (field type) and the value to field value ?

(There is only one occurance of 'Z1' for a record but it can be anywhere in the fields).

Please let me know your suggestions ? Thank you.

    IS this to be linked to some other infoobject, or, your field/type is the info-object and you want its attribute(values) to be brought over? If so, would there be only 5 records for your master data (Z1, Z2, Z3, Z4, Z5)?

      Ajay - I am creating a Zbpartner with these attributes(dept etc) but these details are to be part of 0bpartner. So, what you mentioned is correct. I have to connect this to the original object.

      Using the Start routine, I want to build my transfer structure after I check for the dept code in the data package and then move the values to the fields in the TS. Please confirm if this is the way to do it.

      thanks for yor help.
