Hi

When your report requirement/business requirement is not satisfying by

Business content data sources..Then you have to go for Generic Data Source

If you want to get data from a Ztable then you have to go for Generic data source

Hope it helps

What would be your definition of real time? R3 is OLTP that all transactions must be posted and then extracted to BW. BW is OLAP and therefore, the data analysis is for mass analysis, so you would have to wait at some point to extract the data once all business transactions have been posted to the R3 system. If you want real time you would have to do reporting in R3 or do Remote cube architecture, which probably does not require extracting data from R3.

Hi Praveen

When your SAP business content doesn’t include a datasource for your required application, then business contenet req additional enhancement

Then you have to create Generic DataSource to enable to extract the data from R3 to BW.

You can create Generic DataSource from

1. DB View

2. SAP Query

3. Function Module

Hope it helps you,
