APO DP V5 - ad hoc reporting via a Virtual InfoProvider

Former Member

I am using APO DP V5, and want to do ad hoc reporting on the planning area via a Virtual InfoProvider ('Remote Cube')

Can anyone provide a simple list of steps required to do this - the help text is not especially clear on this topic.

I believe the process is something like:

1. generate export data source for planning area

2. replicate data sources

3. assign InfoSource to data source

4. set up transfer/communication structures

5. create Virtual Provider, based on InfoSource

6. activate Virtual Provider

7. set up BEX query

Hello Bob,

The steps you mentiond here are correct.

Only note that there are transformations instead of update and transfer rules.

Thanks for your reply - very useful.

Can you clarify these points:

1. InfoSource should be of type 3.x

2. Replicated data source should be of type 3.x

3. At the moment I have a data source of type BW version v 7 defined for the planning area. Is it possible to replicate this as a type 3.x

Thanks, Bob.
