Combining queries in a BEx Workbbook


I have a requirment to combine data from 2 queries in a workbook (since for several reasons I could not combine the 2 source cubes in a multiprovider). What options are there in BEx to do that?

Infoobject 0material is in both and is the most granular level in both queries. I was thinking of the following:

display query A (costs per material) in a worksheet. Display query B (eg last PO date for a material) in a worksheet that will be hidden for the user. Then use standard lookup Excel functionality on 0material to place the PO date at the end of the rows on the worksheet of query A.

Would this work? Is this the best practice of joining data from 2 queries in BEx?

Please advice. Thanks!

    hi pandaa,

    you can combine queries in analyzer, make two different tabs in addition to a default tab which is there when you open excel, two additional are inserted because one tab will be for 2nd query and 3rd will be for result.

    in query2, add design item by going in insert analysis grid, now in properties change the data provider name and click on create button, slelct the 2nd query

    in the result tab, create a table merger the data from both queries and save the workbook

    hope this will resolve your doubt
