Change Existing InfoSource from Direct to Flexible Update

Hi Gurus,

We are currently loading 0CUST_SALES InfoObject with direct update from InfoSource 0CUST_SALES (DataSources 0CUST_SALES_TEXT and 0CUST_SALES_ATTR). It is Delta.

But now we also have to load one new attribute from 0CUST_SALES InfoSource to 0CUSTOMER InfoObject.

I believe, for this, we have to change the InfoSource 0CUST_SALES (DataSource 0CUST_SALES_ATTR) to Flexible Update. Then we would write our logic in the New Update Rules from InfoSource 0CUST_SALES (DataSource 0CUST_SALES_ATTR) to InfoObject 0CUSTOMER.

1. Firstly, am I right in assuming that we can do as I said above?

2. If yes, then what are the steps we have to take for changing our existing InfoSource 0CUST_SALES from Direct Update to Flexible Update?

3. Would it affect our Deltas?

4. Do we have to do Initialization etc again?

Please clarify.

      Thanks Pravin.

      But I believe if we do not make assignment for some InfoObject of Data Target in Update Rule, then it means "NO UPDATE". It does not mean "Update with Blank". So it should be ok.

      However my questions are still open. Let us hope that somebody replies soon else I am anyway working on it by going thru some documentation.
