COPA Question

Hello Everyone,

First of all, a Merry Christmas. I have a question on COPA. We are implementing Account-based COPA. We are on PI 2001.1. And so, we can only do a Full upload but not a delta upload. If my understanding is right, we can do a delta upload by installing PI 2001.2. In our case, we have no way of installing a new Plug-in. Could someone tell me if there is a work around for this. I mean to say, how to do a delta upload for Account-based COPA without being able to install a new plug-in.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Guptha,

    I would rather recommend to use an ODS Object to model delta handling. As you referring to account based CO-PA, the data volume should not be too large.

    Cheers

    Andreas

    PS: If you need further assistance in the usage of ODS Objects, please consult the online Help.

      Hi Andreas,

      Thanks for your response. ODS solution is good. But, i was looking something on Generic Extractors for this purpose. Could you throw some light on creating Generic Extractors for this purpose.

      Thanks in advance.

    Hi Guptha,

    I would not recommend to use a Generic Extractor, since you most likely won't be able to reflect all the logic that is built in the CO-PA extractors.

    Cheers

      I support Andreas here. You should only use a generic extractor if

      1. the data volume is definitely too big for standard CO-PA extraction

      2. You have a good understanding of the CO-PA tables

      3. You are willing to do a lot of workarounds in the BW to remodel the things the standard extractors do automatically.

      If you have no problem with these points a generic extractor is a possible way. If you don't have that much experience, you should do a full upload (e.g. monthly after the period end closing).

      Best regards

      Dirk
