Expert advice needed on transport of datasources



Two questions :

1. What all should a transport request contain when transporting new generic datasources based on views or tables ? For example :

If I collect the datasource using RSA6, only the datasource is added to the request and then the request fails in the target system as the view that the datasource was based on, doesn't exist in the target system.

2. Is it possible that unhidden fields from an append become hidden post-transport ?

In my case, we incorrectly transported a request with the property E071-ACTIVITY = 'BW_GENERICDS_DEFINE'that has overwritten a previously transported request with the property E071-ACTIVITY = 'BW_CONTENTDS_EDIT '. In the development system, ROOSFIELD-SELECTION = 'P' while in the production system, ROOSFIELD-SELECTION = '3'(hide) after the transport!

Has anyone faced any such issues ever ?
