Infocubes

Could anyone provide me with a document that explains the development and loading of the data in the infocubes, I am kinda getting started in the BI7 and am refering to the fu-fu book but am getting stuck all the time.

If you could also send me a link of the how to guides for the loading of the data in the infocubes , I would be real thankful for that

Thanks in advance

    Hello APO APO,

    Can you tell me what type of data are you loading? There's a bit difference between loading data in BI 3.5 and BI 7.0. Some of them are:

    1) InfoPackages can only load upto the PSA only.

    2) You can use transformation rules (replaces update and transfer rules)

    3) You need a DTP to "schedule" the load.

    Let me give you a quick summary on how to go about it:

    1) If you are loading from a flatfile, then you have to manually create a DataSource for it and define it's fields (In RSA1, find the SourceSystem for flat files and then create a new DataSource). If you are loading from an external SAP system, you will need to create a DataSource in the SAP system (if you don't have it yet there) and then replicate the DataSource in BW (go to RSA1->Modelling->Source Systems->Select your source system->Right click->Replicate DataSources).

    2) Create a transformation rule from your DataSource to your data target (in your case an InfoCube)

    3) Create a DTP for loading data from your DataSource to your target

    4) Create an InfoPackage to load data from your DataSource to the PSA

    5) Schedule your InfoPackage

    6) Schedule your DTP

    Hope this helps. Please post again if you have further questions.

    If you are comfortable with the way data is loaded in the BW 3.x versions (used prior to SCM5) then i suggest you use transaction RSA1OLD

    Unless you want to use some of the additional features BI7 offersm the BW 3.5 is more than enough to load cubes

    (personally i had some bad experience, cant recollect what it was, loading data from PSA to Cube in BI 7 and reverted to using BW3.x)

    But as Visu said the BW forum might also have some good support on this...
