    Please state your requirement properly ...

    eg:day,sal(these two columns)



    tue ,30

    this seems like multiple records to me...

    Do you mean to say that incoming record is

    sun|10|mon|20|tue|30 and you want to convert the same to "






    Please confirm if this is what you tried to convey earlier...

    • DC,

      There are few ways you can create multiple records from one source records.

      If you have a factor table to distribute the key figure, you most probably want to use return table in update routine (for 3.X) or write a End-routine in transformation to read the factors and multiplicate the records ( BI 7).

      If you don't want to use factor table to mulplicate the records, (like the case you described in your question), you can use key-figure specific update in update rule (3.x) or you can create multiple transformation groups ( BI 7). For your case, probably you want to create 3 transformation groups and create routine for each group.
