Multiple Initializations

I am trying to do Multiple Initialization between 2 BW Systems -

From BW System 1 , i have a DSO with a generated datasource ,which is being initialised in BW System 2.

I did 1 initialization for the Datasource for the Selection FISCPER = 2007.001 -FISCPER = 2007.012

Then i did a second init for FISCPER= 2006.012.

This second init ignored the selection parameter and extracted all the records available in the DSO.

Is there any bug in 7.0 ??

Any help would be appropriately rewarded with points !!

Gaurav pointed correctly. If you are using export DS, you can't migrate that 7.0 Datsource.

That could be a bug... if it brings all the data in DSO. Typically, load should fail or should give an error message saying multiple Initializations not possible with overlapping Selections.

Try to use DSO instead of Export DS. which may slove your problem. all the best.

Are you using BI 7.0 dataflow or 3.X datflow??

And which support pack you are at? b'coz I think below SP 10, 7.0 is quite unstable..

Heres the deal as far as I think..

Seems you have generated Export DS and tried to use tht ..right?

I would say when you are creating DTP - give datasource as your DSO name NOT your Exporet DS..

So your data source would be DSO not Datasource...

This should work.

Please update if it works for you..

Thanks for points assigned
