    Hi Isha,

    My understanding is, you need to derive a field "Category" in target info provider from the source which does not have Category. Can you be more specific on what scnerio the value for the field is populated?

      Hi ,

      you can create an infoobject and use it as infoprovider .here you can load master data for that infoobject via flat file .

      here you will have transformation where you can implement complex logics via routine .

      this will be a one time effort but can be used for multiple targets and you can get data via lookup in your target .

      regards,

    Hi,

    If you use case statement instead of If...else.... then the execution will be faster. And the loading time will also not increase much.

    Hi,

    Since you have document number required to derive the category it will be huge data .You try to use coding with in transaction data only in transformation. Or else you can think of creating master data for document number and category.You need to take up a call based on your other condition whether you need to create any Z table or master data object and load the data through flat file?

    Thanks and regards
