Hi Balaji,

Yes. Your are right that teh multi-provider does not store any data. It is like a view that displays the data from various data targets using union. LISTCUBE displays the data using those unions and displays the data. It is not fetching data from any underlying table of the Multi-provider. Probably if you debug then you would find the various SQL statements fetching data from the other data targets using the join conditions.

LISTCUBE is just meant for displaying the data from an Info-provider in the backend.

If you are familiar with R/3 then you would have noticed that you can see the data in table or view in SE11/SE16 even though a table has data where as a View does not. It is something similar to that.

Hope this helps.

Hello ppl,

the best way to see the SQL statements is to activate SQL Trace I believe...

Hi Balaji,

If you see the SQL Code it would give you a good idea of the underlying query that gets executed when data is fetched from a multiprovider.

If you want to debug then got to LISTCUBE -> Give the multiprovider name. Now enter "/h" in the command field(i.e in the place where you enter transactions like RSA1). Now execute. You should now be able to debug.

Hi Balaji,

You can debug from the LISTCUBE transaction though you would not make much of it.

The best option is to build a query on a Multiprovider and then use the "execute+debug" option in RSRT and select "Display SQL query" option.

Hope this helps.

Hi Balaji,

As the word "Virtual" itself states. It does not store any data. The data is provided from different data targets using joins and unions in the case of Multiproviders and Infosets.

Hi,

MultiProvider is a type of InfoProvider that combines data from a number of InfoProviders and makes it available for reporting purposes. The MultiProvider does not itself contain any data. Its data comes entirely from the InfoProviders on which it is based.

Hi

Sidhartha

Thanks for your message.Untill today I also was in same thought,but today I came to know that v can view data by using Tcode mentioned.

What I want to know is how the data is been storing in virtual infoproviders.Is the data really storing in multiproviders or joining from different data targets

Hi Balaji,

Yes you can view data in Multiprovider.

In NW 2004s (BW 7.0), just right mouse click on the Multiprovider and you have the option to "Display Data"

Hi Balaji,

The Multiprovider being a virtual Infoprovider does not store data, when a request for accessing the data is made it accesses the same from the underlying Infoproviders/Infoobjects which have the data.

Hope it helps.

Hi

AHP

Thanks for your message.But generally Virtual infoproviders does not hold data only structure is been maintained,but how-come data is been storing/display here in Listcube-tcode?

Can you tell me abt how it works internally,whether multiproviders hold data physically? or data is coming from different data targets.

Pl let me know.

Thanks & Regards
