BOM data source ... Li Xu???

Hi Li,

In one of your earlier posts I saw that you have created a custom data source for BOM extraction. I am desperately trying to create a BW data source for BOM with explosion to lowest level. Can you please help me with the logic and the code for the custom extractor..

Delta? Time dependency?

I would really appreciate your help.

My email is

Thanks in advance!

    Hi Ani,

    the BOM data source we implemented is based on R/3 tables. The steps:

    1. you may need to identify the tables and fields and their relationship and requirement first together with your R/3 biz/IT partners.

    2. create a table view by joining the tables and fields identified above.

    3. create generic customer data source against the view.

    4. replicate DS in BW and assign it to IS ....

    we didn't use ABAP coding for this data source.

    Hope it helps.

      Hi Li,

      Thanks for the reply. I will be using STPO , MAST and STKO tables. The main fields that I would need are Material , BOM , BOM Component etc. But I need the BOM exploded to the lowest level and time dependent. Can I achieve this without code?

      Was your extractor exploded to the lowest level?
