    0FIGL_V10 gets data from 0FIGL_C10 using function module RS_BCT_FIGL_DATA_GET_VC10...

    To see that FM (Goto change mode of virtual provider (ZFIGL_V10). click information icon (blue 'i') .. click 'Type/ Namespace'..

    Then click 'details' button)

    To extend, 0FIGL_VC10 .... copy 0FIGL_V10 as ZFIGL_V10 and also copy function module as ZRS_BCT_FIGL_DATA_GET_VC10 and manipulate logic for extended fields here

    You can enhance a VirtualProvider just like you would any other InfoCube. We typically, however, activate the standard content, copy it to a custom name (e.g. ZFIGL_V10) and then enhance it instead of directly enhancing the standard content InfoProvider. You would also have to create a custom version of the RS_BCT_FIGL_DATA_GET Function Module to add the mapping to the VirtualProvider and also the RS_BCT_FIGL_DATA_GET_VC10 which is the actual Function Module called for populating the VirtualProvider. Create the Function Modules first, then when creating the custom VirtualProvider you will use the custom version of RS_BCT_FIGL_DATA_GET_VC10 as the source.

    The thing to watch out for in doing this, is the fact that it's virtual and if you add too many InfoObjects or have many sources or transformational routines, queries using this VirtualProvider may suffer performance issues.

    Dear all,

    thanks for you answers by now. I've two questions left:

    1) Do i have to copy the whole package to get my FB working?

    2) Where do i extend my FB. Do i change the top include to extend my list of attributes (I_TH_SFC) to copy every value of my new attribute from the cube 0FIGL_C10 to my virtual cube 0FIGLV10 or is there a mapping table?

    Best regards,

    Thomas
