Hello,

I have a requirement to load data from EDI Transactions into BW and generate reports from the cube/Ods.

Can you share some ideas ?Or can you provide me any SAP help Docs if there are any?

Thanks

    Hi Priya,

    First thing you need to analyse is, what is the source of data to BW and in which format this source can be? I think, EDI can send data in some standard File format as per EDI transaction. you need to make sure that atleast it is of CSV or ASCII format

    So, as the source is of File format, create Infosource with File as datasource and map the fields in File to Infoobjects in BW.

    If EDI can send in XML format, then create XML datasource in BW on top of above infosource

    Cheers

      Hello,

      I am aware of these steps, but the challenge is I have to create a flatfile structure using EDI Specification.Based on the structure, EDI analyst will translate the data into a CSV file.

      Once the file is generated, I will have to create IO's and IS to load the data.

      As a BW consultant, is this our job to create a flatfile structure ?

      Is there any documentation for this kind of requirement?

      Thanks
