    Hi Prashant,

    You wil need to activate/load all masterdata that has attributes and/or texts.

    Only Info-Objects that are attribute only (and have no description) don't have to be loaded.

      Hi,

      If you load the cube, BW will insert "empty" masterdata records for those that are not present. (Empty = only key, no text, no attributes).

      If you make a query using the characteristics, the texts and attributes used in your query will not be filled.

      Whether you have to load the masterdata in depending on wich attributes/texts you use in your reports.
