Hi Sunadresan,

Multiproviders are InfoProviders, ie they can supply data to a query, but they are not data targets meaning that they do not store any data. Using a multiprovider you can create a union of the data of different data targets like eg. ODS and InfoCubes. The creation process of a multiprovider is similar to that of a cube, ie it has dimensions and a fact table for the key figures. Along with this you have additional processes of Selection and Identification for choosing which char or KF comes from which base data target.

Multiproviders are an extremely useful object and provide good reporting capability with no extra load to the system, as you do not need to load any data into them.

Hope this helps...
