    Hi Jay,

    you also need Business Content on R\3 side in the so called PI (Plug In). When you build up a Busines Content Scenario in BW you might want to activate (transfer)the business content extraktors (transaction data and masterdata) in r\3 in order to extract data to BW.

    Basically the Business Content is a finished solution from extraction in R\3 to Query in BW.

    Let me know if you need more input.

    Hi,

    If I may understand your question, you are asking on whats the purpose of BC on R/3? Am I right?

    Well, I'd like to answer first your question <i>'I thought BC was an add-on to SAP BW. so what is the scoop?'</i>

    You are correct, BC is an add on to BW, however, BC in BW must have a PARTNER from R/3 side and these are the data sources to which these BW-BCs will harvest data from and these are the BC on R/3 installed via BW Plugin. They are a tandem/partner offered by SAP as a standard solution to various R/3 transactions.

    An example:

    Characteristics 0MATERIAL in BW must have a data source from R/3 to which it will pool data from. You can however create your own data source to populate 0MATERIAL but why do that if theres a standard Data Source for it w/c is 0MATERIAL_ATTR?

    Hope I have helped...

    If this was helpful, grant me points

    Hi Jay,

    well, BC is not only an add-on to BW. It is also a add-on (or better a so called PI = plug in) for R/3. It contains lots of datasources, extractors ... to get data out of R/3 to BW. In early R/3 versions, this plug in had to be installed separately, but, I think from release 4.6 on, it is part of the installation of R/3. This is the reason why all these 'BW' transactions are available in your R/3 system even if you don't have a BW.

    regards

    Siggi
