BW Archiving cubes with aggregates

    Did U take a look to "Pilot" section: there's a good

    Technical Course in Level 2, named ASUG104 - "Data Archiving in SAP Business Warehouse".

    According to the process shown in slide 6 after successfull validation of archived data, delteion takes place. As a consequence aggregates are rebuilt, because otherwise ...

    Hope it helps

      During the hierarchy / attribute realignment run BW makes a decision about whether to adjust or rebuild aggregates based on the percentage of rows that require change. The threshold is set using RSCUSTV8.

      Possibly the same threshold applies in archiving? This could be tested by changing the parameter to 0 -- always reconstruct, or 99.
