marker key in SAPscripts??

Hi all,

How can I define marker keys for the character format i just created?? Also is there any documentation or definition of marker (I read the F1 help but couldn't understand it as it was quite terse..).

Where is the switch/field for marker??

Thanks,

Charles.

    Hi,

    Marker is used to reduce the time of fetching the non-cummulative key figures while reporting.

    This no marker update concept arrises if the cube contains a non -cuumulative key figures. say for example take the material movements cube where stock quantity is a non-cummualtive key figure. there the process of laoding the data into the cube involves in two steps.

    in the first step one should load the records pertaining to the opening stock balance/or the stock present at the time of implementation. at this time we will make marker to update( uncheck no marker update) so that the value of current stock quantity is stored in the marker. After that when we r loading the historical movements (stock movements made previous to the time of implementing the cube). at this time we have to check marker update so that the marker should not be updated ( bcs of these historical movemtns only the stock balance /opening stock quantity has been updated. i.e we have already loaded the present stock and the aggreagation of previous/historical data accumulates to the present data).

    Second after every successful delta loads, we should not check maker update ( we should allow to update marker) so that the chances in the stock quantity should be updated in the marker value.The marker will be updated to those records which are compressed.The marker will not be updated to those uncompressed requests. thats why for every delta load requests the requests should be compressed.

    This marker is mainly used to fetch the records value for reporting. it helps easily to get the values of previous stock qunatities while reporting.

    In the context menu of cube >Manage >Compression tab, u will find this check box.

    Marker is used to reduce the time of fetching the non-cummulative key figures while reporting.
