Q about multi-cubes or other method to link 2 providers


Let's suppose that a user wants a query from material master data which involves basic data (0MATERIAL) and MRP data (0MAT_PLANT).

For example, material number (in both), plant (0MAT_PLANT only), cross-plant (0MATERIAL only) and MRP controller (0MAT_PLANT only).

If I create a multi-cube, I will get all parts from 0MATERIAL with cross-plant and all other fields empty (3) and all parts from 0MAT_PLANT with plant, MRP but without cross-plant.

Creating an infoset is (at least in my opinion) painful and not user friendly

Any other idea how to link them easily?

Any suggestion is welcome

Thank you

    Be aware that using a MultiProvier as a MultiCube means using a UNON operator, while using an InfoSet implies using a JOIN condition (INNER or LEFT) ...

    So you must decide which kind of operation is more suitable to your needs, but they are not euivalent at all!

    Hope it helps
