    Hi

    In BW the meta-data contain data about data.

    It is like having information about the information.

    You have the business related meta-data for example the description used in your reports or the technical related meta-data for example the rules used in the transformation or the extraction. These are the two types of meta-data you have in the metadata repository that you manage with the metadata manager

    I hope this helps !

    Regards

    ps: Pls don't forget to assign points thanks!
