hello reports

hi all

i have few things to clarify .i am new and want to know the few things. can u plz

1. when we right click on infocube select infosource overview . if the infosource are red what will be the impact on cube .

2.when they r red and we use the extractors ex 2lis_03_bf and load the data in the cube . the cube shows the data . then what is the use of the infosources avalibele in infosource overview.

3. how can we find from which feild is data picked into reports and what is the related feild in r/3 . bcause when i see the reports it gives me standard sap names ,ex. po delivery date/vendor costvalue etc . so the user is not able to understand what does that feild mean exactly in bussiness terms ie .r/3 terms . how to find it.

4. when i see data in psa the records almost are same has r/3 records . i know psa will be storing the data which is been extracted from r/3. but when i go to cube and see in the reports it is not showing same data what is avalible in psa . why ?

thanks for ur replay in advance and i dont want to take much of ur time for now . points will be rewarded. thanks once again.

    hi veda,

    i don't have answers to all your questions YET, but let me answer the others:

    3. you have to analyze the update rules for the infosource that populates the field in question. the field name of the source should give you an idea of where it came from. as for an exact matching, you'll have to go to the datasource in R/3 and try to determine from there where the extractor is getting its records.

    4. PSA collects all the records that comes in, but the cube may or may not use all of those fields, which is more particularly noticeable with delta updates. it depends on what behavior the record going into BW will have.
