hi gurus,

We are implementing SAP BW(sap netweaver2004s/BI7.0).As new version having lot of changes we need guidance.

After activation of standard infoobjects,cubes and datastore objects how to load the data into bw from SAP(ECC5.0 source system)?.What are the next steps we need to do?..Pls help us with the step by step in detail.

points will be assigned

first take data in PSA(infopackage)


I Then Carry on with the transformation & then DTP as ususal.

we have two types of extractions 1) Application specific 2)cross application

under applicatin specific -->we have customer genenrated and business content extractions

under customer generated means LIS, CO-PA, FI-SL(i.e no ready made data source in business content so we have to generate datasource)

Business content means there is ready made business content datasource so we can use it

LIS,LO --> when ever we go for extracting logistics informatin

CO-PA--> for financial info

under cross APplicaion

Generic extraction-->table, view, infoset query, function module

Generic extractors are of 3 types:

1. Based on table/view

2. Based on Infoset Query

3. Based on Function module

The first 2 are straight forward extraction.

Check this blog for more info on fn module extractor:

genric exraction in real time scenarios

1.When Business content does not include a datsource for your application.

2.Business content requires additional enhancements that need datathat is not supplied by SAP BW.

3.The application does not features it's own generic data extraction method use your own programs to fill your tables in SAP Systems

LO -Realtime

This topic is explained by Roberto Negro for more details on LO and LIS extraction. Check the below link from roberto: [original link is broken]


Basically COPA- Profitability Analysis enables you to evaluate market segments, which can be classified according to products, customers, orders or any combination of these, or strategic business units, such as sales organizations or business areas, with respect to your company's profit or contribution margin.

The aim of COPA system is to provide your sales, marketing, product management and corporate planning departments with information to support internal accounting and decision-making.

Please check this COPA document:

How To doc link

LIS Steps..

T.code - :MC18 – create field catalog

1. Characteristic Catalog

Application-01-Sales and Distribution, 02-Purchasing, 03-Inventory Controlling, etc..

Catalog category 1. Characteristic catalog, 2. Key figures catalog 3. Date catalog Select characteristic catalog and enter, click on characteristic select the source table and it will be display the relevant source field and select the source field, copy + close, copy.

Save, similarly create key figures catalog

T.code : MC21 – create infostructure

Example –

Inforstructure : S789

Application – 01

Choose characteristic select the catalog, select the fields, copy + close Choose key figures catalog select the key figures ,copy + close, save and generate

T.code – MC24 – create updating

Infostructure : S789

Update group : 01- Sales document, delivery, billing document ,enter Select the key figures click on rules for key figures give suggest rules, copy save and generate Click on updating (activate updating) Select the infostructure set periodic split 1. Daily, 2. Week, 3. Month, 4. Posting period Updating –1)No updating,2)Synchronous updating (V1), 3)As synchronous updating (V2), 4)As synchronous updating (V3),

T.code – LBW0 - Connection of LIS Information structures to SAPBW Information structure : S786 Select the radio button-Setup LIS environment and Execute.

Select the radio button-Generate data source and Execute.

For Delta update:

Select the radio button-Generate updating and Execute Select the radio button -Activate / deactivate and Execute.

T.code – SBIW – Display IMG (implementation guide) Setting for applications specific data source – logistics – Managing transfer information structure – setup of statistical data – applications specific setup of statistical data –perform statistical setup – sales.

Choose activity

Setup – Orders, deliveries, billing

Choose the activities enter the infostructure (S789), give name of the run, date of termination, time of termination, No. of tolerated faulty documents. Then execute

T.code – RSA3 – Extractor checker

Give the data source name eg. 2LIS 01S789 and execute, result will get some records Go to BW side replicate data source – Assign infosource – Create infocube – Create update rules – create infopackage and schedule the package with initialize delta process.

For delta update :

In R/3 side

T.code – MC25, set update (V1) or (V2) or (V3)

T.code – LBW0, choose generate updating and execute then choose activate / deactivate and execute

BW side - create infopackage and schedule the package with delta update.

First time if your scheduling the infopackage -in R/3 side T.code :MC25 -Udating set to No update,insted of selecting the update V1,V2,V3.

If your doing the Delta update:in R/3 side T.code :MC25-Updating set to either V1 or V2 or V3. and the to T.code :LBW0 -Select the radio button Active/deactivate and Execute.

and schedule the infopackage with delta update.

Modules for LIS :


Deltas for LIS:

After setting up the LIS environment, 2 transparent tables and 1 extract structure is generated for this particular info structure. Within transaction SE11 you can view the tables ‘SnnnBIW1’, ‘SnnnBIW2’ and the structure ‘SnnnBIWS’ and the InfoStructure itself ‚Snnn‘

The tables S5nnnBIW1 & SnnnnBIW2 are used to assist the delta update process within BW.

Extract structure ‘SnnnnBIWC’ is used as an interface structure between OLTP InfoStructure and BW

The OLTP system has automatically created an entry in the control table ‘TMCBIW’. Within transaction ‘SE16’ you’ll see, that for your particular InfoStructure the field ‘BIW active’ has the value ‘X’ and the field ‘BIW status’ is filled with value ‘1’ (refers to table SnnnBIW1).

The orgininal LIS update program ‚RMCX#### will be enhanced within the form routines ‚form Snnnbiw1_update_....‘ and ‚form Snnnbiw2_update

With the transaction ‘SE38’ you’ll see at the end of the program starting at line 870 / 1006, that the program is enhanced within a ‘BIW delta update’ coding

Within the flag ‚Activate/Deactivate‘ the update process into the delta tables (SnnnBIW1/Sn5nnBIW2) is swichted on/off. In the table ‚TMCBIW‘ is defined, which table is active for delta update.

Note: The delta updating is client dependent !

pls chk this link:


Go to Transaction LBWE (LO Customizing Cockpit)

1). Select Logistics Application

SD Sales BW

Extract Structures

2). Select the desired Extract Structure and deactivate it first.

3). Give the Transport Request number and continue

4). Click on `Maintenance' to maintain such Extract Structure

Select the fields of your choice and continue

Maintain DataSource if needed

5). Activate the extract structure

6). Give the Transport Request number and continue

Next step is to Delete the setup tables

7). Go to Transaction SBIW

8). Select Business Information Warehouse

i. Setting for Application-Specific Datasources

ii. Logistics

iii. Managing Extract Structures

iv. Initialization

v. Delete the content of Setup tables (Transaction LBWG)

vi. Select the application (01 – Sales & Distribution) and Execute

Now, Fill the Setup tables

9). Select Business Information Warehouse

i. Setting for Application-Specific Datasources

ii. Logistics

iii. Managing Extract Structures

iv. Initialization

v. Filling the Setup tables

vi. Application-Specific Setup of statistical data

vii. SD Sales Orders – Perform Setup (Transaction OLI7BW)

Specify a Run Name and time and Date (put future date)


Check the data in Setup tables at RSA3

Replicate the DataSource

Use of setup tables:

You should fill the setup table in the R/3 system and extract the data to BW - the setup tables is in SBIW - after that you can do delta extractions by initialize the extractor.

Full loads are always taken from the setup tables

The Lo-cockpit procedure is go with LBWE Transaction

so that you can get Applications 02,03,...etc

Under that you have

Extract structures

select your data source here Be sure that First you InActive that Then go with LBWG "Delete setup data"

here you can give the application No example 02(if your application is Purchase)

then once again LBWE go with Maintanace Tab select your Fields then your Datasource is Active position then You have to Fill the Data

then go with Extractor Checker RSA3

First create transformation and then DTP to schedule data from Datasource to target.

follow below links for clear idea.

fro transormation

for creating transformation

for DTP

Hope it helps.
