Enhancing SAP Standard DataSources/Extractors

0 Kudos

Hello,

I have found a number of SAP standard data sources which almost meet my needs. Examples of these are:

  • 2LIS_11_VASCL

  • 2LIS_11_VAHDR

  • 2LIS_11_VAITM

However with each data source there are some fields that I would like to add. For example, with 2LIS_11_VAITM I would like to add ARKTX which is in the VBAP table. I am NOT a BW expert. What is the simplest way to get a working data source which is a copy of one of these standard data sources which I can add the fields into?

Thanks,

Kent

Hi Kent

This field is available in MCBVAP communication structure

so just add it from LBWE -


>Maintain DataSource

Thank you for the reply.

I am aware of this and I tried to use this transaction to add the field to the extraction structure. However when I do I get this error:

Changing the extract structure MC11VA0ITM for application 11 is not permitted, because the restructure table MC11VA0ITMSETUP for the extractor still contains data in 800

Do you know how I can resolve this situation?

Is it the normal to just modify the SAP standard data sources to include fields like this?

Thanks,

Kent

hmm...that is because you need to clear your extraction queues first

Check this document

http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/c09d5356-d8c4-2d10-8b84-d24723fc1...

there should not be anything in LBWQ for your extract structure

and from LBWG delete setup table content of application 11

To clear MCEX11 from LBWQ , run report RMBWV311 from SE38
