Adding dozens of fields to Extractors

We have a requirement to add dozens of Comm. Structure Fields to standard extractors. 2LIS_11, 2LIS_12 and 2LIS_13* are the main extractors of interest.

In R/3, this is a simple task. The challenge is in BW because each field needs a corresponding InfoObject:

1) What's the simplest way to identify existing BW InfoObjects to match up with the R/3 fields? E.G. BSTNK in R/3 is PO number. The only way to find a good InfoObject that I know is to search the catalog with text like (PO number). I've got to believe there is a table that would have BSTNK in it with a correponding InfoObject????

2) The table in question 1 should have both activated and “delivered but not activated” standard business content?

3) Is there another way to do this efficiently? I know you can do a F4 from the InfoSource when you have a field but this only shows active InfoObjects. Furthermore, this would only be for one field at a time.

Any ideas are appreciated.

    there isnt really an automatic matching tool in BW that proposes certain infoobjects to extractor fields. But if you re using a business content datasource then there will be coressponding objects. but in your case you have custom fields. I suggest you look for matches or create custom objects. I usually create custom objects. you can go for this unless there is a rule/limitation regarding custom object creation in your organization.

    I suggest that you really try to find the SAP delivered InfoObjects. Why? Because the infoobjects binds several solutions together. And how? Search the Metadata Repository in RSA1 (it will take some time but the pay off could be large in the end).
