Joining similar fields with different names in a multicube

Hello all!

I have a multicube which already affects 8 infocubes (loaded) in Production, all infocubes related to one line of business. Now I need to add to my multicube 5 other cubes (also loaded), similar to the already affected ones, but from another line of business. At this point, I found the following difficulty: the field "version nr." exists in the old cubes and multicube with technical name N1 (for example) but in the infocubes I need to add, the same field has technical name N2. N1 and N2 have the same type NUMC4.

I need to map both fields to only field N1 in the infocube, but, for what I could see, in the Identification function the field N2 does not even appear to be mapped to N1.

How can I make this mapping? Or do I need to change field N2 to N1 in all 5 infocubes of the new line of business (with deleting and uploading all data) to solve the problem? Many thanks in advance...

Hi Davide,

I'm affraid that you need to change the field N2 to N1 in all 5 infocubes and deleting and uploading all data.

You can map 2 fields in a mulitcube if they are using the same infoobjects or at least refering to the same infoobjects.

If it's very difficult to delete and reload the data into all 5 infocubes then in 7.0 you have the option to add new fields and populate them without deleting the data.
