Need help in loading master data.

Hi everyone,

I am just a beginner in BI 7.0 . I know Bw 3.5 . I need help in loading master data(flat file) in a step by step manner.

Before posting this forum i searched and checked out other related forums too, as i am a beginner i am unable to follow them. Lots of the forums gave the link which i used and got a little help but not fully, so please don't send that link. I need a step by step guideline from somebody, which says everything from the beginning till monitoring say like

e.g.. 1) create a InfoObject by right clicking on InfoObject catalog.

something like that.

please help me get a clear and detail step by step procedure to load a master data (Flat File should be good) which may help me get a start will other things without much help.

Please help me learn.

    HI Ranjani,

    If you know the BW3.x master data loading the same will be applicable for 7.0 also.

    You can insert the InfoOject as as data target and can create the transformations using either the datasource or Infosource.

    There is no special futures for infosource in 7.0 when compare with 3.x

    but the new feature is you can use the datatarget is as a templete to define the fields in infosource.

    Decide according to ur proj requirement, you can opt the infosource or not.

      Thanks for your reply. This is what i did.

      1) Created a Info Area.

      2) Created Info object catalog & activated

      3) created info object with nothing except some 4 attributes.

      4) Created Application compound in Infosource tab.

      5) Right clicked on Application compound and chose create Infosource in which chose a option with 3.x and chose the flexible update and gave the info object name.

      6) In info provider tab , in the Info Area right clicked and chose the Insert char as data target option.

      Now, i am stuck. I have no idea what to do next.

      I know i have to create a transformation - There are two tabs in Transformation box, what should i do there.

      Please help me from point 6 to cont., to load the data.
