    hi,

    if you want to fill a new field for exisiting record u have to empty the content of the cube and then reload the data.

    so u can go to se14 and delete the contents.

    regards.

    Hi

    If you are in BI 7 you have option to proceed without deleting the data...

    AWB >administration tab >remodelling..

    If you are in prior versions,you need to delete data and model it again

    Hope it helps

    Thanks
