    You can perform this activity via the selective

    deletion function in Infocube maintenance. You would need to de-activate any

    aggregates, perform the selective delete, then re-activate the aggregates.

    In terms of performance, the most important thing is to re-build DBSTATS and

    check for degenerated indexes that may need re-building to bring their size


    Deleting a request ROLLED UP in aggregate => no problem (it just takes

    longer because of the activation/deactivation of the aggregates)

    Deleting a request COLLAPSED in the cube (named 'compressed' in older

    BW-versions which I'm hoping you're no longer using) => you CAN NOT

    delete this based on the request-id (since collapsing removes this) =>

    just maybe a selective delete can work for you. For this:

    => Manage Data Target-screen of your cube

    => tab Contents

    => push button 'selective deletion' (lower right)

    => on Selection choose 'immediate start' on Delete Selections

    choose your selections WISELY

    => push START (not continue)

    A selective delete : deletes data on your cube base on a selection

    However,another method can be by following these steps:

    1 find your request on request infocube manage/request.

    2. Goto Monitor screen and apply request reverse posting.

    3. so it wiil add one request with negative values.

    4. you have to compress that particular request.

    5. see your data in Bex.

    For any other functionalities for requests in InfoCubes,please refer to the following link:
