Extracting data from datasource 0FI_AR_6 in R/3

Hi,

Can someone provide all the steps to get this data from R/3 to BW ?.

Also, how do I enhance this datasource with extra fields ?.

I am new to this type of extraction and do not understand how to set this up.

Thanks.

    Go to RSA1, -buisness content - cubes and double click.

    Search for -FI_AR*. you will see 4-5 cubes. Compare the data sources fields to the objects in these cubes and you will know.

    You will get good documentation in help.sap.com-netweaver - bi content -financials.

    reg LO, they work differently and the process of extracting from Lo extractors is very different than other extractors.

    No real setup required aside from the standard datasource to infosource to update rules to infoprovider loop. You initialize your delta and it will then track based on timestamps (minus 30 minutes) in the tables used, no fancy LO on that side.

    Hi,

    Can you specify in detail every step including how to get set up generic delta ?.

    I am new to this.

    Thanks.

    0FI_AR_6.

    1. Activate data source in RSA5 in R/3.

    2. Replicate the data source in BW, goto source system , identify the source syustem, right click, data sources overview, search for this data source and say replicate.

    3.Assign the info souce 0FI_AR_6, when you assign , system will install this info source for you.

    4. Check the maping in transfer rules and activate the info source.

    5. Activate the ODS / cube where you want this data to be sent.

    6. Create update rules, check the maping and activate the update rules.

    7. Go the info source 0FI_AR-6 and, right click and create info package, If the data souurce is delta enabled, initialise and load data.

    Enhancements:

    Depends on whic field you wish to add.

    Look for the table and field where the filed should come form.

    in RSA6, shoose enhance structure, copy the field and append the structure.

    Write the logic in CMOD and activate the data source.

    1. No set up tables. Set up tables is for LO extraction.

    2. I have detailed the steps in my earlier note.

    3. RSA%, choose your data source and say transfer.

    4. In BW, go to RSA1, business content - cubes - search for your cube and say transfer and on the right side, select choosedata flow before and after and install.

    5. Rest of the steps I have given oin my earlier note.

      Hi,

      1) How this extraction is different from LO Extraction ?. I don't know what LO Extraction does .

      2) .How do you find out which infocubes this datasource loads the data to ?.

      Thanks for all your help.
