Can we add a cube to BIA if the requests are deleted daily


Hello gurus,

We are facing a question with what cubes should be the candidates for BIA.

We have few infocubes where the data is loaded for the current period daily and the previous request is deleted. This is how this cube handles the delta. Can we add this type of a cube to BIA without having to re-index the whole cube every day?

Most forums and experts say we need to re-index the cube once you delete data out of the cube selectively. Is this procedure considered selective deletion and does it not work like a regular delta and if we roll up BIA after the load, does the BIA automatically load the delta indexes?

Please let me know your views on this.

Thanks in advance.
