How to check the fields for transfer in BW for a 3 .x datasource?

Former Member

Dear BWers,

For an SD extractor 2LIS_11_VAITM, i enhanced it in LBWE and added some custom Z fields that were already available in the underlying VBAK table. After unhiding all these fields in R/3, i activated/replicated this datasource. In BW i see the datasource (3.x) but only in display mode and the newly added Z fields are not checked for transfer. How do i check these? When i hit the change button it gives a message "Only transfer rules can be changed for this 3.x datasource". Please advise.

Thanks

Raj

P.S. We are in BI 7 with R/3 4.x as backend.

Check the forum for the Activating Emulated DataSource.

Basically you have to activate transfer rules first, then try to activate the datasource. It should work.

Problem is resolved. Deleted the transfer rules and then recreated them from the Infosource. I can now see all the Z fields.

Thanks
