Copying the functionality of Standard Data Source to generic Data Source

Hi All,

We want to copy all the fields from the Standard data source 2LIS_03_BF to a generic data source and the functionality of the generic one should be same as standard data source. Is it possible to implement in such a fashion. Please let me know the steps to create such a data source.

    goto RSA2 with 2LIS_03_BF; note its extract structure: MC03BF0.

    Now you have to create your own structure with the same fields or just create a ZMC03BF0 structure with one component .INCLUDE of type MC03BF0.

    Then create your own generic datasource using structure MC03BF0.

    Your will then need to code your extractor in a function module.

    Another option perhaps simpler is going to LBWE with 2LIS_03_BF and see in the maintenance of the structure the fields. Create a view based on table MSEG and a generic DS based on this or directly based on tale MSEG.

    hope this helps...

      as I said, you'll have to code your own FM; you can't use MCEX_BW_LO_API which is standard; it just won't work...

      Please let me know why aren't you just using the standard?
