If not what are the steps needed in order to create a BW Cube if I know the tables that are used in the program.

    Hi Mason

    Below are the steps

    1. Create a Datasource based on the view/db table.

    Check this link . I think your case simpler that what has been explained in this doc.

    http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/10a89c00-7dd7-2d10-6f83-cd24ee6d517c?QuickLink=index&overridelayout=true

    2. Replicate the DataSource in BW system. Activate it

    3. Create InfoPackage, by right clicking on the DataSource

    4. Run Infopackage to bring data till PSA.

    5. After sucessful execution till step 4, create transformation between your cube and DataSource. Activate it.

    6. Create DTP, activate it. Run the DTP to load data till cube

    Hi,

    If you have a complex logic in your ABAP prog, better to use geenric DataSource using function module, where you can have that logic and fill the internal table with required data. This step will be on ECC side.

    Then as suggested next step is to bring that data into BW, as anything comes to BW server have to go via PSA, so create InfoPackage to get data into PSA and then using DTP load that data into CUBE.

    Thank-You.

    Hi,

    Why do you want to create a cube using program? I know a function module which can create a copy cube RSDG_CUBE_COPY but I don't know if there is any program or FM which can create cube.

    Regards,

    Durgesh.
