Info-Object Self transformation

Hi Friends,

Env - BW 7.4

I have a requirement to add new master data to an existing Custom Infoobject.

Datasource from ECC for this info object is 0ME_MATERIAL_ATTR and 1CL_OME_001.

The new master data that we need to add is not a part of ECC table.

I have to take a property of the existing custom object and add it as a new master data element together with few other additional properties

I have created a self transformation on this info-object and ran a full load. It looked successful initially updating the object with the new master data. As far as the properties go, change to the properties does not seem to trigger an update (even with full load)

The DTP runs and updates 0 records and the message shows

"When updating master data/texts/ODS tables it was noted that no data has changed. No database operations are therefore necessary"

Is this normal? I expect this self DTP, should update the properties for existing data.

The master data is active before I ran the self transformation.

Is there any other way to update, I thought about creating a custom DSO to update the data in, but with this behaviour I would imagine the properties would not be updated, unless its a new master data.

Thanks for your time

    Edward, I assume you are populating new fields in either start routine or end routine. I am guessing that you are missing a statement to actually modify the source data. That is probably why there is nothing to update in ETL. If it not obvious, try debugging the DTP. Or post the code here and someone can review and help.
