    Hi Anjali,

    The comment below is valid for LIS extractors, I do not know if it is valid for others.

    First of all, uou should indeed go trough this on all your systems. (dev, QA and Prod). The procedure is used to prepare DATA on your system for extraction on BW. Data in dev is different from data in Prod, therefore you need to do it in every system.

    1) First delete (= rsa7) or load into BW (via delta upload) any remaining delta queues.

    2) Go to SBIW, delete the contents of the setup table (It's somewhere in the menu of Logistic cockpit, you'll find it).

    3) Fill the setup tables. It's in the same transaction a little bit lower. Run in background, and put the end date in the future.

    4) Initialize delta in BW.

    5) Fill the delta queues using LBWE.

    6) Upload delta's in BW

    Repeat step 6 and 7 as often as you want.

    I hope it helps,


    In the same transaction (SBIW). You can afterwards run the setup.

      Hi Anjali,

      Deleting DELTA could take some time. You should however delete it with the least users around. Executing in background will ensure that GUI Front End disconnection would not cancel the job. Also, depending on your settings, a Front End Processing has a time out of 1 hour (at least in our setup) thereby disconnecting your processing...
