Add new keyfigures to an existing cube (with data)

Hello,

I want do add 2 new key figures to an existing cube. The cube contains data (250 million entries in the fact-table). I can´t activate the cube. I did the activating by an background-job. The runtime was extremly long then I stopped the job. I think the problem is the initialization of the new fields in the fact-tables. In DDIC in saw the two new fields have the flag "initialize".

So I think I can remove this flag in the development-system >activate the cube > fill the new fields by SQL

-->and activate the flag for "initialize".

Then I activate the cube.

But how can I do this in the following system. I´m sure that an transport will be canceled.

I cannot find any SAP-Notes about this.

Im thankful for help or any other ideas or workarounds.

Regards,

Stefan

    Hi Stefan,

    what about this scenario?

    Generate a export data source for the cube.

    Create update rules for the new data source back to the cube.

    Load the data from the cube to PSA.

    Delete the data in the cube.

    Add the new keyfigures to the cube and activate it.

    Load the data from PSA back to the cube and, with a bit of coding in the update rules, fill your new keyfigures additionally.

    regards

    Hi Siggi,

    thanks for your reply.

    To load the data to PSA and return to Cube was my first idea. But it takes a long time.

    Now I will copy the cube and add the new key figures. Then I create a multi provider above the two cubes.

    Is it possible to change the aggregation of an key figure if it's used in a cube with data?

    Can I try this:

    1. Delete the entries for the KYF in table RSDCUBEIOBJ

    2. Change the aggregation (now it's possible)

    3. Insert the entries back to RSDCUBEIOBJ

    4. Activate the cube

    regards

    Stefan
