Reinit/Reload for added/changed fields in PO line item and GL ODS

Hi all,

Probably this is usual process in SAP BW.

I have changed 2Lis_item data source and added few fields in 0Pur_o1 ods.

In ods there is data from 2006 to till date.

Now I have to move my changes to Production system. I have to delete and reload compele data again then only I will get values for added fields.

Similar way I have changed 0fi_gl datasource and added few new fields in GL field.

What is the best approach I should follow to get all history data with all new values and start delta ?

    Assuming that the extractor is already live and pulling in data in Production, you don't have to reinit if you are populating the new fields via user exit.

    As for bringing in the history, you can create a generic datasource based on the ODS key fields and the newly added fields. That way you can load the history without dropping and reloading all the data.
