Design of dataprovider

Hi,

Am facing difficulty in implementing folowing scenario in BW.we are trying to do Freight report.

In my report, i need to display for a particular

customer, type of transport,delivery quanity and freight cost.

In cube or ODS, if data is stored at Customer,delivery doc, item , type of transport,quantity,cost.Then in scenario where we have more than one type of transport(eg: Truck,Air) for same delivery doc ,item ..there will be 2 records with different freight costs but with same quantity(since delivery quanity to the customer is same and its one).

So in the report, if quantity is viewed at "type of transport" level then it will be correct. but if drilldown is removed ,then quantity will get aggregated and it wil be doubled for that customer.

Please suggest in design in order to achieve the above scenario.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Ideally the data at the delivery document level should have the actual quantity that is transported using the type of transport ( Air / Truck etc) and not the total order quantity. There should be some table in R/3 that captures this info.

    If the standard datasource does not provide the quantity per mode of transport, then you may have to enhance the datasource to get the Qty per mode of transport from the table that you will have to find with the help of the functional consultant.

    If the above can not be done there is nothing that can be done in BW design.

    Assign Points if useful
