Hi Gurus,

I am trying to do the BI upgrade from BW 3.5 to BI 7.0, and I am currently working on the preparation phase. I am struck at steps where they are mentioned Converting Data Classes of infocubes. I am lilttel confused. Note: 46272, 500252 does not have an idea, Why & how to create new data class.

Can someone please tell me step by step how to create a new data class? and what do I exactly need to do in report "RSDG_DATCLS_ASSIGN"?



Under the Assign Data class:

I have the following Data classes

APPL0 Master data, transparent tables

APPL1 Transaction data, transparent tables

APPL2 Organization and customizing




USER Customer data class

USER1 Customer data class

USER2 Customer data class USER2, generated by

I think I need to run this report with OLD data class and map with new data class (that will be created under customer name space) to convert the info cubes, so we wont loose any data classes during the upgrade?

-Why we create data classes(I never heard even that we create data classes for infocube!)?

-What is the use of Data classes?

- How we identify that we crate data classes for Infocubes?

- How to create data class? step by step please.

- What is the next step after creating data classes?

Please reply as early as possible.

Hi Kavitha,

You just want check whether the DDART classe are present in the cubes or not.If DDART classes are there in cube then you have to convert them by using the FM RSDG_DATCLS_ASSIGN.You need to check that the DDART classes should not present in the cubes.

You can check this by RSDCUBE->Select Cube->Display->Extras--->Maintain DB-Storage parameters.Check if there is DDART class..If it is there then convert thro' FM.

Hope it helps.

Thanks & Regards,
