Enhancing Inventory Compressed cube - existing cube data handling

Dear Experts

Existing inventory cube does not have a infoobject.

The extractor was enhanced with new fields and new infoobject added in development system.

As this inventory cube is compressed, deletion of existing cube data would be a problem as far as I understand.

So, I am not sure what is the best practice to handle this sort of situation where existing data need to be populated with new field from the extractor.

I heard there is this technique called reverse posting. Could you kindly provide the documents or cookbook to perform reverse postings?

Is it in effect deleting existing cube data and then reloading from R/3 such that the new field is populated at time of extraction?

Our delta mode is Unserialized V3 update.

Thank you for reading.

Best regards

    Down time is mandatory.

    If not enhanced new field will capture data from the data it moves to production. Historical data for that field will not captured.

    If you know Material dos you an do reverse posting .

    Fill setup table table for those mat dos and run BF and edit stock qty/value at PSA and load to target and compress accordingly.
