Hi, BW experts,

In our situation, we have 2 BW system. now we wanna copy one template from BW A to BW B.

we created Transports to copy all of BW data objects ( InfoObjects, cubes, queries,.... ), But in BW B, we don't have any data.

There are lots of master data in BW A ( lots of them are maintain by manually), was the good way to copy those master data from BW A to BW B system?

1. export to txt files from BW A , then import them to BW B. ( too much work)

2. manually maintenance ( too much work )

any else simple and fast way to copy them ??? Pls advice

Thanks in advance

Hi Jie,

You have these options:

1. Create export datasource on the objects you need in BW A and load from BW A top BW B.

2. The other option if the export datasource does not work is to create datasource on the master data table in BW A. Now in BW B create the connection with BW A and load the objects. For cubes you can create info-hub and store the data in DB table. Now use the DB table and create the datasource in RSO2.

Hope this helps.

Hi, Dinesh,

If we create infoprovide for infoObjects to create export datasource, it's too much work and big impact of BW A system.

do anybody know whether transport can transport data (infoObject) from BW A to BW B system? if so, how can do it?

hi Jie,

did you try SE16, master data tables e.g /bi0/p[infoobjectname] etc

menu - table entries - transport entries ?

hope this helps.

If you cant so system copy, as suggested by Anil, the other thing is to load data for A and B systems separately.

Hi, Anil,

System copy is not possible since BW A and BW B are different business proposed.
