Save Data directly into a master table of a InfoObject

Hi to all

I like to save data into a master table of a InfoObject with ABAP.

I'm using a BSP to enter manualy data into a master table of a InfoObject. When i maintain

the InfoObject in RSA1 i see the manual entered data, but when i start

a query, the datas are not visible.

What is the meaning of the fields OBJVERS and CHANGED in the master table

of a InfoObject?

Thank you

Tobie Niggli

    Hi,

    I would not recommend writing data directly in the master data tables, as there are plenty of control tables around which have to be maintained (e.g. SID values).

    I would rather write the data into a table within the BW database and use the normal data load mechanism via generic extractor from this table. Doing this, you use standard BW functionality and can be sure that all tables are in-sync.

    Kind Regards,

      There is the SAP whitepaper "How to Update Master Data during an upload of transactional data" for version 2.x.  This uses function module RSDMD_WRITE_ATTRIBUTES_TEXTS to load master data via normal BW processes. You may be able to utilise this in a program.

    Thank you very much in advance.

      The whitepaper is still there. Try service.sap.com/bw Its under the Services & Implementation -> HOW TO Guides -> Guide List SAP BW 2.x (version 2). Its called "How To... Update Master Data during upload of transact. data"
