Depends on your needs.

If you need to delete all trash previous uploads - try using delete all.

In order to just to change already existing data - Overwrite.

For report data:

Use delete all, but selective - you understand?

e.g. you have balance sheet assets financial items from 100000 to 199999,

then use the upload method with selection from 100000 to 199999 and use update method "delete all".

For master data:

Better use "delete all".

It is better to create missing data then having sorry, **** in BW! Like we did...argh : )

SEM-BCS is master and BW slave. If you have "old master data" in BW, you won't get it out again that easy!

My opinion...
