When data is loaded from one source to another source within BW, then the source provider becomes the data mart. Suppose you have an ODS and you have a cube to which the data is loaded. From the context menu of the ODS if you select the option 'Generate Export Dat source'' and infosource will be automatically generated in the infoarea called d'data marts' with naming convention 8<name of the ODS. This will be the infosource to the cube to which the data is to be loaded from the ODS. Thus the ODS becomes the data mart to the cube.

Hope this helps you.....
