Modify export data source

Hello friends,

I am in need for some advice for modifying an export data source.

My scenario is as following: I have a cube for which i would like to generate a datasource in order to export some of its contents to a second cube.

That means i would like to "erase" or hide some of the infoobjects present in the first cube from the generated export datasource.

In rsa6 i cannot set the hide flag for those fields.

In rsa2 i see that the field attribute for the infoobjects i would like to hide is set to 'X' whereas i would like to have a '3' instead.

Can someone guide on the procedure of setting the field attribute for the export datasource?

set the update rule to 'No Update' for the fields you do not want and that is better than hidingthe fields in RSO2.

As mentioned previously , you would have to do this manually every time you refresh the infocube design.

Hi Gili,

I am not very sure if it is recommended in general to modify the "exported data source", because any change made manually, will be overwritten if the cube is changed and/reactivated again in the future.

However for your case, I believe even without changing the generated DS it should work - simply mapping the info objects available in cube2 and leave the rest unmapped.

Hope it helps.
