FI-newGL extraction options (multi ledgers)


Hi everybody,

My project is working on ECC v.6 / BI v.7.

We use multi-GAAP accounting. Each GAAP being represented by a ledger in SAP.

For reporting purposes we need to extract the FI-newGL transactional data to BI.

SAP provides basic extractor and DSO for the leading ledger.

I'd like to have your opinion on which option you recommend (pros and cons) to integrate data from the other ledgers.

We basically have two options:

- duplicate the extractor and DSO so that we have one extractor+one DSO per additional ledger --> this option is a SAP standard option

- modify the standard extractor by adding the ledger InfoObject so that we can load data from the additional ledgers to the existing standard DSO (i.e. we will have one extractor+one DSO for all the ledgers) --> this option is a non standard option

Thanks in advance for your advice!

Kind regards,
