Hello BI friends:

I am in the process of generating a A/C based datasource for my CO-PA Cube. Transaction KEB0 gives an option for entering "Field Name" for partitioning. In our current environmen we have not specified any value. However, since we are upgrading the R/3 system, wondering if this partitioning has any significance for datasource creation. Want to know:

How does this help in BW? Any pros and cons?

Does this improve any performance?

Want to know the difference between creating the partition and not doing it on BW side.

steps are looking fine,but are you going to create it on account based or costing based...

If it is costing based,it is perfect..
