How to use a ECC6 ztable in SAP BI without create a SAP BI flow (DSO)


We have a specific parameters table ZTABLE in ECC6 to maitain a factory date, this table is updated via an ABAP program (ZPROGRAM) after a factory job.

The ZTABLE contain one a field u201CZDATEu201D that we need to store it into the infocube for each data loading (it represent the data loading date). In other words, we would like to use this table in SAP BI to read one field data (ZDATE) and store it into the infocube.

The problem is that we canu2019t use a standard BI flow (datasource, DSO u2026), because we could have a dump loading when we will try read the DSO (from ZTABLE) in the same time that we activate the DSO. The Ztable contain a several factories and is updated after each factory closing.

Do you have any idea to use this table without create a standard SAP BI flow (Datasource, DSO u2026) ?
