Transformations and DTP

Hello Friends,

We have a planning scenario, wherein the data from the same cube needs to be transformed and filled in the same cube. For this we need to have 9 transformations. Can we have 9 transformations and 9 respective DTP's, when we have the same data source (InfoCube ZTest1) and the same data target (InfoCube ZTest1). If yes, please let me how can it be done.

Awaiting your helpful answers.

Thanks and Regards,

    1) Create rule groups within the transformation

    2) Create 7.0 InfoSources and transformations Cube >InfoSource>Cube

    Hope it helps

    I would strongly suggest the use of rule groups. With the Help of them you could multiply one source Dataset to multiple output dataset and it quite easy to use.

      of course i don't know if your transformations are complex or not, but if you are sure about having nine different transformations you could also think of writing your transformation logic in a startroutine with a case statement.

      However i am interested in the reactions on your question if this is possible or not.

    DTP is attached to a transformation. A DTP will always run the same transformation. Certainly you can code around in Start Routine and so on, but why not use the new InfoSource concept?

    This will allow you to create multiple transformations with DTPs linked to them.
