"Read Master Data" works, but does not update target

Hi all

I have a scenario where I want to update an InfoObject in a InfoCube with masterdata from an InfooObject that is not contained in the source of the transformation. The setup is like this:


ContractA has an attribute called ContractType. This attribute is correctly filled with data from its source. ContractA is not contained in the Source of the Transformation.

ContractB does not contain the attribute, I'm interested in. ContractB is a part of the source for the Transformation.

The InfoObject ContractType (which was the attribute on InfoObject ContractA) is part of the target InfoCube.


The Transformation is set up like this:

Rule Type = Read Master Data

IOAssgnmnt = ContractA

Source InfoObject = ContractA

The issue[/h6]

My problem is that whenever I test the setup using the "Test Rule (F9)" command, I get the correct results. But when I run the DTP (first I delete data from the target InfoCube), no data is put into the InfoObject ContractType in the target InfoCube.

Can anybody help with this issue?


Best regards,

Martin S√łgaard

    can you pls check whether note 1227788 Reading master data with buffering returns incorrect values is valid for your SP.

    • Hi Martin,

      when the Master Data is getting Refreshed and at thesame time if Data is being Read as mentioned in the Transformation,in such cases the data wont get updated.

      Hence Store the data in Internal Table in Start Routine and populate it in the Transfer routine.

      There are lot of codes in the SDN to populate the master data or from any object or from DSO.
