Need to overwrite ODS

0 Kudos

Hi Friends ,

I have created an ODS,with keys Run ID and Financial Year in addition to some more key fields.

The ODS stores the results of a Report .

every time the report is run,new records are created with new RunID .

Acoording to therequirements, I need ovewrite the ODS data each time the report is run for the same financial yaear i.e:

Current ODS data

(150 records):Financial Year 2006 RunID 10000

(100 records):Financial Year 2007 RunID 10001

run the report again for 2007 ,RunID : 10002 (50 records).

Now my ODS should have :

(150 records):Financial Year 2006 RunID 10000

(50 records) Financial Year 2007 ,RunID: 10002

Can you please suggest me ,How should I overwrite the old records everytime the Report is Run for the same financial year.

Thanks in advance!!

Best Regards,

when you look at the update rules for the ODS - see the key figures and there you will have three options as radio buttons - Overwrite / Addition / No Update...

select Overwrite and the key figure values will be overwritten for the same key field combination.


hope it helps....

you should set update rules for key figureas as overwrite.

and field RunID shouldn't be key in your ODS
