    0PS_C02 - Dates(Identification Using External <b>ID</b>)

    0PS_C021 - Dates(Identification using<b> GUID</b>)

    Difference is - In New Content 0PS_C021 BW Can uniquely identify a PS Object using GUID which cannot be changed as External ID which was changeable.

    "<i>As of BI Content 3.5.3 Add-On SP2, the Business Content for the Project System (PS) has been redesigned so that an SAP Business Information Warehouse (SAP BW) system can uniquely identify a PS object (for example, a project definition or a WBS element) using the object's GUID instead of its external ID. <b><u>The advantage of using the GUID is that it cannot be changed in an SAP system, whereas the external ID can be changed.</u> Previously, if a user changed the external ID of an existing PS object in an SAP system and then uploaded the object to SAP BW, <u>the SAP BW system would create new records for this object instead of updating the existing records.</u> Using the GUID therefore <u>improves the consistency and correctness of reporting in SAP BW</u> for the Project System</b>.</i> "

      HI Roberto,

      thanks for the clarification on duplication. Regardomg the list of datasources,

      we are still in the initial stages on what fields to use. On high level I knew few and I was confused between the two which I have mentioned earlier. Let me dig more into this and update the thread once I know what exactly I am looking for.

      Thanks for your advise.

      Regards

      Shanthi
