    Hello,

    Whats your data source?

    The field from the source system should have the same properties as that of BI infoobject to be mapped.

    Exapmle: product in source is char 60 in BI we have 0PRODUCT which is also a char 60 infoobject.

    Thanks,

    Vinay

    Hi Kirti,

    Please be more specific in your requirement.

    You should have this field in your data source to map it to a field in the BW.

    Hi Kirti,

    Usually, standard datasources in BW has hidden fields when activated. Most probably the Approval Task End Date is hidden.

    Login to your source system and check in T-Code RSA6.

    Search for your datasource in the program, then you must un-hide the field by unchecking the hide checkbox for the said field.

    If this field is not present, you need to enhance the datasource to have the field available in BW.

    as I mentioned in my earlier message..

    you can find needed field in data source: to find field from data source go to RSA5 in ERP system

    provide your standard extractor which you going to use.. and then check for right field.

    once you have right field make sure that it is not hidden if hidden make it available then

    go to BW replicate data source and then you can see that field in BW data source then you can map this field to corresponding field from DSO in transformation.

    Thanks,

    The rules of engagement (http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-19331) require searching before asking questions on SCN. I realize that you are probably just learning BW, but SCN is not really a good place to learn the very basics of BW. It would be really cool if someone would start writing a BW intro on the SCN wiki, but I don't think that's happened to date. So, the best option is probably buying a book.

    This thread appears to be going nowhere because the OP doesn't have the background to understand the answers. I'm going to lock the thread.
