Adding an attribute to Master data

Former Member

Hi all,

I am on 3.5. I have added a z-attribute to 0MAT_PLANT, an existing master data infoobject. I added it, and then wrote a transfer rule in ABAP to fill it. However, a problem arises when I try to load it. I run a full load of 0mat_plant. It is successful (RC = 0), but no records are added or changed - which I guess makes sense because the data set I'm loading from R/3 hasn't changed. However, this resents a problem because my new attribute is not populating. How do I trigger a load that fill my new attribute?

Thanks.

Dave

Sure. Essentially, my problem was that I wasn't loading it properly. 0MAT_PLANT had more than one datasource, and I was loading the default one - which was also thwe wrong one. Once I loaded the right one all was well.

Hi there,

It seems you're sending your data from R/3 to 0MAT_PLANT with delta, therefore, if no new data, nor changed data is present in R/3 you wont' have any in BI.

Just do a full load of your R/3 data to the 0MAT_PLANT in BI to completly fill the 0MAT_PLANT (and therefore filling the new field), after that you can continue to have to normal delta data, that for every new record or changed record to 0MAT_PLANT will be filling again the new attribute, but you have already completly filling the "old" data of 0MAT_PLANT (with the full) with the new attribute data.

Thanks Diogo, but I was doing a full load already. Any other ideas?
