Any differences between load data into cube from.....

Hi all,

I try to load data into a infocube from another infocube, first I generated a export datasource from original infocube, next I created a new infocube, then I created a update rule on it, BW give me 3 options: from infosource/ods/infocube, here I can use infosource which is the generated one for sure, my doubt is can I use the 3rd option infocube? seems like ok, if so, what are the differences between these two options?

Thanks in advance

Ryan

      Hi Oscar,

      Thanks for your answer. Yes, generate a export datasource before the update rule creation, this process is mandatory same as using the way of infosource(8cube_name), my question is that if both way can get same result, why SAP give these two options?

      Regards

    Hi,

    you have to use third option only ie) infocube , because now infocube acts as a infosource to other cube.

    when you are loading to infocube through ods then you have to use second option , because you will generate export datasource of ods when you create a update rule , now ods will acts as a infosource to cube.

    when you are loading data to infoprovider (cube or ods) from R/3 or flatfile ,then you will create a infosource and assign datasource and after that when you create a update rule , you have to first option as infosource.

    Regards,

    Siva.

      Hi Oscar,

      Thanks again. But BW doesn't allow me to create the update rule if I don't generate a export datasource on the source cube(e.g. zcube1), after I generated the datasource(8zcube1), then I can create the update rule on the target cube. Be aware all description above base on the option of infocube not infosource.

      thanks
