I know that SID's are generated automatically when ever master or transactional data is loaded in BW.. But is there any why that i can create SID for a BW characteristic through a program. or is ther a Function module which would genete the SID so that i can use it...

Hi Mahesh,

You are absolutely correct that the SIDs are automatically created by the SAP BW system, when you activate an info object.

And as you know that the BW system is an Object oriented system, so i dont feel that there will be a function module to do so, As only methods and classes are there..

For creating SID for a characteristic, you will need to create and activate the characteristic itself. You can not create SID for an existing characteristic.

So the only way is you will need to dubus RSA1 to see which methods are called when you create and activate an info object.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Vikas Bittera.
