Additional fields in Cube

I added some additional fields in my standard cube, assigned the dim table and activated the cube. Tried to activate the update rules too, but it got failed. So, can anyone please write me the steps to add additional fields from the templete of the cube? I am using 3.1 and standard cubes.

thank you in advance.

    You have to check the maping of the updateRule:

    1. Double click on one keyFigure.

    2. Select the tab "Characteristics".

    3. On the bottom check the mapping done automatically. If the system didn't find a good one, the routine option has been selectde but the ABAP is not OK. So, you need to defined a good mapping or you need to write a good ABAP.

    Regards

      where do you expect to populate the data for "additional" charactersitics from ?

      If you are going to make use of ABAP to derive values for the added characteristics, you should add the ABAP for update rules of the characteristics.

      If you are expecting that the values should come from the info source / ODS, then mapping for the fields should be first maintained in the respective structures even before you activate the update rule.

    Hi,

    Did you add/create the new infoobjects in the transfer structure too. If not, you have to do even that.

    Thanks.

    Hi Sajita,

    You need to do the mappings for the additional field in the Update rules. Once you have done that you can activate the update rules and it should be fine. You also need to add them in the transfer structure and activate the transfer structure and communication structure.
