InfoPackage to load multiple flat file for different plant

Hi
There is a requirements to load the data from multiple flat files by different plant into BI which source data is coming from other system. Each flat file has it own naming convention.
As data has to load via infopackage into the targeted cube. Then I have to create multiple infopackage in order to load the data according to the number of flat files that provided. However, new plant will be created due to expansion of bussiness. If that is the case, additional infopackage is required to create as and when there is a new plant. 
Is there a way to create a infopackage to load the data from flat file by plant? Your advice is much appreciated.
Thanks and regards
Kang Ring

Hi,
The best way I can suggest is....
1. Create a folder in AL11 for your requirements.
2. In InfoPackage under Extraxction Tab you can have File Name , just side of this you can fine ABAP Routines ICon there you click on that and asks Name give some and then it will takes to your into ABAP Code there you can access the AL11 and then write code in such way that to take file irrespective of the File name, whatever the file is there in that Folder it ahoud take from that AL11 Folder path.
3. Load the Data using PC.
4.At the end of the PC Delete the File in AL11 folder , becasue we don't need it for next load.
Else

    Hello Jens,
    you have to process the InfoPackage 239 times. Your routine would be executed once during one processing of the InfoPackage. This would run the WHILE statement and end up with the last filename after 239 iterations.
    Either try to concatenate the files you want to load (if possible) and load them in one go. Alternatively you could try to use a process chain to run the InfoPackage 239 times.
    Kind regards,

  • SSIS project - read multiple flat files with different formats

    hi all,
    i need to import multiple flat files with different formats into different tables of the sql server database and not able to figure out the best way out in ssis to do so...
    please advise the possible methods in ssis to do so and if possible the process which can be dynamic as file names or columns might change in future.

    Hi AK1987,
    To import flat files with dynamic columns, we can use Script Task inside a Foreach Loop Container to parse the first row of the flat file to get the columns names and save them into a .NET variable, then, we can create “Create Table” script based on this
    variable, and then store the script into a SSIS package variable. After that, we create a staging table based on the package variable, load the flat file data to the staging table. Eventually, we load data from the staging table to the destination table. For
    the detail steps, please walk through the following blog:

  • SSIS - Import Multiple flat files with different metadata

    Hi ,
    I have set of flat files with different metadata structure, I would like to load them into staging tables. 
    1. ) Can we load the flatfiles into the staging tables with out having multiple data flow task.
    2.) If possible , can we programmatically select the staging table based on the metadata of the flatfile and load them.
    Please advise.
    Thanks
    Thiya

    Nope in SSIS a data flow task needs to have a fixed metadata. So if your file metadata varies then best option would be use OPENROWSET syntax to pull the data and populate into your staging table. You may also use 
    SELECT .. INTO StagingTable ... FROM OPENROWSET (...)
    syntax to create staging table at runtime based on the file metadata
    http://sqlmate.wordpress.com/2012/08/09/use-your-text-csv-files-in-your-queries-via-openrowset/
    If you want to do this in SSIS you need to create data flow dynamically using script task and build the metadata
    see

  • Loading multiple flat file at a time.

    hi experts,
    I am having 15 flat files with same data structure.so how do i load all the fileswith out creating 15 info packges .
    ( say all the files are on the desktop.)
    I had seen the option that ABAP code an be written in info package in extraction tab.
    Can any one share me the abap code
    Regards
    Laxman.

    You can write dynamic code using ABAP if your number of flat files are not fixed...but if you have to 15 flat files always just creating multiple infopackages.
    For code, you have to store file names/name pattern in some table and reading it at run time. You can use function modules starting with BAPI_IPAK* to create/change/start template IP like BAPI_IPAK_START. You can set IP parameters at run time using FM RSBATCH_MAINTAIN_PAR_SETTINGS.

  • How to load multiple flat files

    Hi,
    I am new to ODI 10, I have one requirement where I need load flat files containing the folder size11GB.
    I want to load them all in a single instances with using of single data server, single physical schema and single logical schema.
    How can we do this.
    Also to execute this in package what steps and precautions do we need to follow.
    Thx

    Is the data in your files the same format?
    If so, simply follow one of the many guides to looping around files that use a common structure to load them, you can do this in parallel if you want.

  • Using ssis import a multiple flat files with different mappings

    I have an scenario for import a file
    20 different flat file source and having XML mapping document in a table.

    i have map this file based on the file name extension in dynamically
    create a 20 different staging table based on mapping in dynamically
    kindly help for this
     

    Hi Karthick,
    As Arthur said, if you don't want to hard code the data flow, you need to read XML from the SQL Server table and use Script Task to implement the dynamic columns mapping. To read XML from a SQL table, you can refer to:
    http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2009/02/13/sql-server-simple-example-of-reading-xml-file-using-t-sql/ 
    In the Script Task, we need to parse the first row of the flat file to get the columns information and save that to a .NET variable. Then, the variable will be used to create the query that will be used to create SQL table. For more information, please see:

  • How to use BAPIs for Infopackage execution : loading multiple files

    Hello
    I have been told that BAPIs can be used to load multiple csv files at once for which some BAPIs exists (BAPI_IPAK_CREATE_FROM_REF , BAPI_IPAK_CREATE , etc)
    I have users who will be dropping their standard files in a directory (this should be a local one or server one ?) according to one of 3 types of formats defined.
    As they wont be trigering the IP but instead plan to use a Process chain need a way to collect all files and trigger a IP that can process them all
    Can somebody lead me into using the appropriate ones in the right way?
    thanks

    First if you are using process chain then the files should be placed in Application Server only and process chain can not work with IPs which are using Local Files.
    Instead of BAPI in the infopackage there is a feature to select the file using routines. May be you  can pick the necessary file in the routine itself.
    In the extraction tab you can find this option.

  • Hierarchy using a flat file for a master data load.

    Can anyone please tell me the steps involved in creating a hierarchy in BI 7.0.  and loading the data using a flat file into the created hierarchy? I have seen some posts and weblogs but they were not helpful and i have been getting some errors which i dont know how to resolve.
    Can someone please give a clear steps and procedure for this?
    Thanks a lot in advance.
    Naveen

    Hi,
    The flat file is generated in application server by executing an ABAP program in SE38.
    This ABAP program contains the logic to generate hierarchy.
    In our case we used a DSO to store employee & supervisors.
    This program generated a flat file in tmp folder in application server
    In our case, To load this flat file we  created an Infosource on our master data using direct update using RSA1old Tcode
    after Infosource is created right click on the InfoSource and click on Assign DataSource.
    Give the Source System name
    When you open this Info source you can select data source as YHIEROBJ_HIER and then activate the InfoSource.
    create an Info Package to load the Hierarchy. Right click on the PC Files (Source System) and click on u201CCreate InfoPackage".
    Under Extraction tab give the flat file name which is generated by the ABAP program in AL11.
    Select the hierarchy which you want to load. Also, you can rename the Hierarchy after loading it. The update method is selected as u201CFull Updateu201D.
    Logic for Generation of flat file & ABAP Program:
    Flat file structure:
    Node ID     InfoObject     NodeName     Parent ID     Date To      Date From     Language
    u2022     u201CNode IDu201D indicates the unique number which defines the Node.
    u2022     u201CInfoObject u201Cgives the name of the InfoObject which is assigned to this Node ID.
    u2022     u201CNodeNameu201D is the name you specify to that Node.
    u2022     u201CParent IDu201D is the Node ID to which the Current Node ID reports to.
    u2022     u201CDate Tou201D and u201CDate Fromu201D are taken for time references (You can set them constant).
    u2022      u201CLanguageu201C is set to English (E).
    The program Logic can be :
    Declare the hierarchy structure
    Get the data from DSO into internal table
    Read all the EMP values into NodeName Field of the table
    Build lookup table for Parent Node ID
    Fill Parent Node ID field
    Append this data to work area & then to another internal table
    You need to declare the selection parameter as SSFILE1
    & use following code to write back the file
      OPEN DATASET SSFILE1 FOR OUTPUT IN TEXT MODE ENCODING DEFAULT
         MESSAGE MSG.
      IF SY-SUBRC NE 0.
        MESSAGE E008(ZBW1) WITH MSG.
      ENDIF
    Populate the output from that internal table into final work area.
    Transfer this final work area to the ssfile1 which is the desired output file.
    and   CLOSE DATASET SSFILE1.
    When this program is executed, selection screen asks for the name of file
    Enter the desired file name & execute
    flat file would be generated in the Application server now.
    To view the File, Go to Transaction AL11. Search the directory /tmp. Double click on this directory.
    This opens the list of flat files under this directory. Double click on the file name.
    Hope this helps.
    Thanks,
    Rashmi.

    Pros -> Faster loading of more data
    Cons -> Potential performance degradation
    Test to see how much resource consuming this task would be and do a priority comparison of that multi-multi load task with other stuff that will be happening in the database in the multi-multi load time so you could decide how to share resources in that time.

  • How to design Flat file for loading attribute dimension in a planning application

    Dear Gurus,
    I have a requirement to extract attribute dimensions from an essbase application and load it to another planning application. I have a dimension called Program and two attribute dimensions Sales Manager, Accounts manager associated with Program dimension in Essbase application. I will Extract these dimensions using Essbase outline extractor. After Extracting the attribute dimensions I have to load these dimensions to planning applications using outline load utility. Kindly guide me how to design the flat file for loading attribute dimensions in planning application.
    Thanks and Regards
    SC

    You could dig through the docs and try to figure out the file format manually, or you could do this the easy way.  Simply use the Outline Load Utility to export your attribute dimension from Planning.  The export file format is the same as the import file format.  You might have to manually add a couple of test members to your attribute dimension so that your export file has some content.  Then simply update the file you exported, and import it.
    (I am assuming you have already manually created the Attribute dimension in Planning, and that you simply need to add members to it.)
    Hope this helps,
    - Jake
