Adding a new characteristic without reloading cube



I would like to know how to add a new characteristic in a loaded cube. I would be creating a new field in the cube derived from an existing InfoObject in the cube.

The idea is derive the value from one InfoObject to a new InfoObject without reloading the whole cube.

Let me give you an example:

Having existing InfoObject in the cube: ZTASK which value is “CSRPOW004”

New InfoObject: ZDERIVED = “C” that would be obtained by using Abap ZTASK(1) in the cube update rule.

This was my first idea. But I do not know how to do it without reloading the cube.

Do you have any other ideas: Query Customer Exit, Abap program, etc?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
