ABAP Data Flow vs Normal Data Flow to extract data from SAP tables

One can extract data from SAP tables ( e.g KNA1 or MARA) directly using a simple data flow or one can also use a ABAP data flow .

The ABAP data flow is circutious and long drawn , so why would we use ABAP data flow or what scenario's are suited for ABAP data flows ?

Closing this thread , as I discover that the simple Data Flow has performance penalty when transporting HUGE data sets

Hi

I know you "closed" this, however someone else might read it so I'll add that when you use an ABAP dataflow, logic can be pushed to ECC - table joins, filters, etc. (Which can be seen in the generated ABAP).

Thanks Michael again for your prompt response . I will be joining a Data Services Project in a weeks time , so trying to learn stuff before I hit the project . I am sure I will have many more half baked questions for the next month or two
