Question: Partitioning possible for ODS?

Answer: No, It's possible only for Cube.

Question: Why partitioning?

Answer: For performance tuning.

Question: Have you ever tried to load data from 2 InfoPackages into one cube?

Answer: Yes.

Question: Different types of Attributes?

Answer: Navigational attribute, Display attributes, Time dependent attributes, Compounding attributes, Transitive attributes, Currency attributes.

Question: Transitive Attributes?

Answer: Navigational attributes having nav attr these nav attrs are called transitive attrs

Question: Navigational attribute?

Answer: Are used for drill down reporting (RRI).

Question: Display attributes?

Question: How do we convert Master data InfoObject to a Data target?

Answer: InfoArea ‘Infoprovider (context menu)’ Insert characteristic Data as DataTarget.

Question: How do we load the data if a FlatFile consists of both Master and Transaction data?

Answer: Using Flexible update method while creating InfoSource.

Question: Steps in LIS are Extraction?

Question: Steps in LO are Extraction?

Answer: Maintain extract structures (R/3).

Question: Maintain DataSources (R/3).

Answer: Direct Delta, Queued Delta, Serialized V3 update, Unserialized V3 Update.

Direct Delta: With every document posted in R/3, the extraction data is transferred directly into the BW delta queue. Each document posting with delta extraction becomes exactly one LUW in the corresponding Delta queue.

Queued Delta: The extraction data from the application is collected in extraction queue instead of as update data and can be transferred to the BW delta queue by an update collection run, as in the V3 update.

Question: What are Process Chains?

Answer: TCode is RSPC, is a sequence of processes scheduled in the background & waiting to be triggered by a specific event. Process chains nothing but grouping processes. Process variant (start variant) is the place the process chain knows where to start.

There should be min and max one start variant in each process chain, here we specify when should the process chain start by giving date and time or if you want to start immediately

Some of theses processes trigger an event of their own that in-turn triggers other processes.

Ex: Start chain ‘Delete BCube indexes’ Load data from the source system to PSA'

Load data from PSA to DataTarget ODS ‘Load data from ODS to BCube’ Create Indexes for BCube after loading data ‘Create database statistics’ Roll-Up data into the aggregate' Restart chain from beginning.

Question: What are Process Types & Process variant?

Answer: Process types are General services, Load Process & subsequent processing, Data Target Administration, Reporting agent & Other BW services.

Process variant (start variant) is the place the process type knows when & where to start.

Question: Difference between MasterData & Transaction InfoPackage?

This is only possible when we use MM & SD modules.

Question: Why it takes more time while loading the transaction data even to load the transaction without master data (we check the checkbox, Always Update data, even if no master data exits for the data)?

Answer: Because while loading the data it has to create SID keys for transaction data
