    hi,

    infoarea is a object under which u create your infoobject and data target such as

    cube ,ods,multiprovider etc.

    in other words it is a collection of various bi object.

    infosource is link between source and target.it coatnin the mapping of source and target fields.

    infoprovider is an object on which reporting is done.It can be either data target such as cube ods or master data object or multiprovider,infoset etc.

    Info Source :

    An InfoSource is a quantity of information that logically belongs together, summarized into a single unit. InfoSources contain either transaction data or master data (attributes, texts and hierarchies).

    The structure in which these are stored is called a communication structure.

    There are basically two types of InfoSources.

    InfoSources with flexible updating

    Info Sources with direct updating

    Check this for infoprovider,

    info-set--info-provider-and-info-spoke

    Prakash,

    Infoarea is used to organize the objects created in the AWB. It is just like managing files in folders.

    Infosource is a structure like thing used in the data transfer.

    Infoprovider is one which providers data for reporting but need not be a data target.

    hi

    info provider..

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw2004s/helpdata/en/28/4c553c42360a40e10000000a114084/

    infosource

    infosource definition is nothing but the communication structure that you design to map to the transfer structure. Logically grouped objects in the infosource basically reflect the the data provider to which you would be loading the data thru the infosource. So most of the time the structure of the infosource would be the structure (similar) of the data provider. Just as all the logical objects would relate to a dimension, the same would be true to infsource too.

    hope it helpss...

    cheers.

    Hi

    Infoarea is like a folder to keep all relevant objects under one roof

    Infosource is a source of information to supply data from data source to data target.

    Infoprovider is a data storing object like our tables but in a different format and structure..which provides information based on your query.

    Hope it helps

    Thanks

    Teja
