Extracting Purchasing Data to PO Cube

Dear All,

Just for your information, We could able to extractthe Purchase info to the existing Purchase Cube without any problemstill 30-12-2004.

Just to reload the data we have deleted the existing data from Purchase Cube. We have not made any changes to the existing purchase cube. Now we tried todo Delta Initialization but it is not working.

The Error is , The job is running too long and also hanging.

Request still running


No errors could be found. The current process has probably not finished yet.

System response

The ALE inbox of the SAP BW is identical to the ALE outbox of the source system


the maximum wait time for this request has not yet run out


the batch job in the source system has not yet ended.

Current status

Please kindly help me.

    Hi Tham,

    check sm37 and sm21 in your source system. May be there is a long delay time for the job, may be the job dumped for any other reason. In this case, BW does not recognize a error and the request will remain yellow.

    Hi Tham:

    Siggi's response was accurate. It is true that sometimes failures during extraction are not properly communicated to the RSMO data load monitor. You can utilze the features of the data load monitor to guide your troubleshooting, though. The step-by-step analysis can guide you to the background jobs SM37 for the extraction in the source system. You may want to look at systemic issues at the time of the extraction (source system - was it overloaded with jobs, etc). You can often find dumps in ST22 for the ALEREMOTE (or simillar) user - match the approximate time of the failure of the load with the time frame in which a dump may have occurred.

    Furhermore, the deletion of the data from the cube should have reset the delta status, but you may want to make sure you do that from the menu in the InfoPackage, prior to running the delta init.

    Also note that you can set a timeout parameter per InfoPackage. Look at the history of the loads to determine the reasonable maximum time for the completion of the load (for an InfoPackage), then add 30 min & set a timeout. That way, if the data load has been running for X amount of time the light goes from yellow to red. Thus any triggers you have set in the process chain to catch failures (email notification, for example) will let you know when the job has been moved to a failed status b/c of timeout.

    regards -
