To delete and insert a new key figure in the cube

Hi Experts...
             How can I delete a key figure and insert a new key figure into a cube with data...? Should I be creating a new cube with the new key figure ?
Thank you..

Are you using Bi2004s
yes you can delete,add,replace a key figure

  • Adding a new key figure to Info Cube

    Can I add a new key figure to an existing Info cube in which data is loaded?
    Assume that In Info Cube we have the following.
    Stu Id -- Characteristic
    Maths , Physics , Chemistry -- Key figures
    These are the info objects which are already available and transfer rules are already available for the same in the infosource.
    Could any one let me know how to add one more new key figure (total ) , which is the sum of the three marks to the Info Cube and populate the data in to the same.
    I have tried the following steps ,  but could not get the solution.
    1). Create a new key figure info object (total).
    2). Add the same to the communication and pull the same into transfer rules of the existing info source and activate the same.
    3). Add the new key figure to the info cube.
    4). Open transfer rules for the info cube and change the mode from NO updation to Addition for the particular key figure (total).
       When I perform the 4th step it is giving a red symbol beside the key figure in update rules and I'm not able to activate the same.
    Any help on how to add key figures to update rules and transfer rules is highly appreciated and points would be assigned.

    1.add new Keyfigure to Infocube.
    2.Go to Update rules> go to update type of that Keyfigure>selct formula in update method>create new formula>here you can add up your 3 keyfigures-->OK.
    activate update rules and InfoProvider.Check all are active or not..
    by using Export generate datasouce ,you populate data(historical data)  to new keyfigure as well.Then you have to delete historical data requests.
    or iyou can create formula in query designer as well as srinivas suggested.that would be better option.

  • Added new key figure in the report

    I have added new key figure in the report .If i display this key figure value in the report it is populating correct value with ERROR(example 22.5 ERROR).The report is on the multiprovider .i have check the value for this in multiprovider it is populating correctly .There is no calculation in the report for this .While extracting in to report i am getting this. Help me to resolve this issue.

    I have already created a formula like NODIM(Key field).that only i am using .
    and mapping I did in this way. I went to multiprovider and I have selected this key figure and right click and select (assign) then I have click on create proposal for all infoobjects option.
    Please suggest any thing need to do.
    I am sorry .I did not understand the lonterm solution suggested by you .what is UOM .Please tell me how to map.can you pls tell me clearly please

  • Populating the key figure in the Cube

    hi frineds,
         I need to populated the custom key fiugre added by me in the cube using the update rule. But if i see the tables of the cube it is seperate for every dimension and key figure. how can i select the particular record from the key figure table with out the reference of the dimensions table.

    so you want to
    1. read particular record from cube
    2. populate the amount there.
    but populating the amount directly to infocube is not advisable and not feasible as well.
    my suggestion will be virtual infoprov based on transformation
    you will have to write your logic there and you can populate the amount based on billing number (you said you have amount against billing number).
    at query runtime based on transformation/logic your amount will be populated.
    only drawback reduced query performance

  • Receiver JDBC: Error while doing the Deleting and Inserting new records

    Hi All,
              I am doing Idoc to JDBC scenario. In this I am collecting & bundling different type of Idocs and then sending to the JDBC receiver. My requirement is to delete the existing records in the database and insert the new records. I have configures as mentioned in the link
    Re: Combining DELETE and INSERT statements in JDBC receiver
    In the above link its shows for single mapping. In my scenario I am using multi mapping for collecting idocs in BPM. If I configured for normal mapping then it is working fine(Deleting existing records and Inserting new record). Whenever I am using multi mapping then I am getting following error in the receiver JDBC communication channel u201CError while parsing or executing XML-SQL document: Error processing request in sax parser: No 'action' attribute found in XML document (attribute "action" missing or wrong XML structure)u201D . Can you please tell me what might be the problem.
    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi !
    check this out:
    JDBC - No 'action' attribute found in XML document - error
    JDBC receiver adapter: No 'action' attribute found in XML document
    It appears that the inbound payload (the one that is going from XI to the JDBC adapter) does not have the requiered tag to specify which SQL action to execute in the receiver system. Maybe the multimapping is not creating the desired output message format.

  • Adding new key figure in Info structure

    Hi all,
    I am in a need to add a new key figure to our info structure here in my company.
    The way I understand it is, it would be best to create a NEW info structure and copy all existing key figure and characteristic and then insert my new key figure into this and rewrite the macro if required.
    So my question is
    1. How to determine which info structure is currently in use in my company? If i check in MC89 - the key figures match what is in Info structure S076. So is it safe to assume that we are using standard S&OP in my company? Is that a correct way to identify the currently used info structure?
    2. For our KMAT, when i open a planned order I see that there in another info structure (not S076) under configuration tab. So can we have diff info structure in use at a same time ?
    Please guide.

    Hi Nisha,
    1. First of all, How would I determine which info structure is being used at this time in my company?
    I need to know this so that when I am creating my own custom (S500 - S999) info structure, i can copy the existing KFs and Characteristics and add them to my info structure and then Add a specific key figure on top of that.
    Info structures are nothing but tables so in se16 you can check which are Info structures are having update values.
    Yes you can add the specific key figure on existing self defined info structure in MC22 after that you need to generate it.
    2. Can multiple info structure be in 'use' at the same time in any scenario? 
    For self defined info structure are application specific you can not have multiple info structure for same scenario. If you take the example of flexible planning with self defined info structure then you can transfer the demand from only one info structure.

  • Addition of new key figure in ODS

    Dear all,
    In ODS, delta is loaded everyday through process chain. Now according to business requirement, we need to add one more key figure in it. I don't have to map it with any of the R/3 field. Only i have to create update routine to assign value in it using already existing key figure.
    Can i directly add new key figure in the ODS? Will it affect my data present in ODS as well as daily delta load process?
    If i can do this, can i assign exact 'key figure' value for the existing data also?
    Please guide me for the same. We are using BW 3.5.

    I am not sure that it is true that you need to delete data.  I am sure one can add a field to the ODS without deleting it.  The field will remain blank after creation, unless you fill it:
    1.  manually using a flat file for past data; mapping will work for subsequent data
    2.  Use a self reference if the value is already present in another key figure.
    The change may take a long time to activate depending on the following:
    1.  Size of the ODS
    2.  Existence of indexes.
    However,  as you are running a delta you need to be careful of the delta queue if you also intend to touch the datasource.

  • Add new key figure to an Infocube

    Hi Experts
    I need add two new key-figure to the Infocube with data.
    Can I do this, or I need have an empty cube in order to made the changes?
    Thank you in advance!

    Yes the same, no need to delete data unless you recategorize the existing characteristics the same is true for the ods too. Adding is not issue, only removing.

  • Add of new key figure.

  • 250 Key figures in one cube?

    we need to report on 250 key figures at the same time. I now there is a limitation in the cube of 233 KF, any ideas to solve this problem? What about using an ODS for the reporting, are there any performance issues or do you have experiences with this amount of KF in one infoprovider?
    Many thx

    I think you should reaccess your data model and see if the no of key figures can be reduced. 233 is the max allowed by SAP. You can partyly solve this problem by creating 2 cubes with the same characteristics and splitting the key figures. This solution will work only when you have mutually exclusive key figures requirement in the report.
    Also you can use the Restricted key figures and calculated key figures in the reports thereby reducin the actual key figures in the cube to be within the limit.
    Hope this helps.

  • Poplulate key figure thru the start routine

    Hi Experts,
    I have update rules for my cube. In the start routine there, if i wrote abap code would it automatically fill the value of key figures in the cube. Can we do that with the ABAP code ?
    Or do i have to go to each key figure's routine and then refer to the internal table data in the update rules etc.
    If someone has done this before, would you pls walk me thru it.
    Thank you,

    Hi Tia Ismail,
    I hope it is wrong to update the cube fields directly in the start routine.
    <i>add DATA_PACKAGE-/bic/zslsgm to /bic/ft_mismets-/bic/Zslsgm.
    add DATA_PACKAGE-/bic/zsalesamt to /bic/ft_mismets-/bic/Zsalesamt.
    add DATA_PACKAGE-/bic/zinvlines to /bic/ft_mismets-/bic/zinvlines.</i>
    The above statements are wrong.
    Then start routing you will update the values (from blank to some value) for these fields. And also make 1 to 1 mapping Between these KF of info cube to Fields of Communication structure. i,e
    Zslsgm(Info cube KF) <---> Zslsgm(Communication structure field)
    Zsalesamt(Info cube KF) <---> Zsalesamt(Communication structure field)
    zinvlines (Info cube KF) <---> zinvlines(Communication
    structure field)
    The code you have to use in Start routine is :
    tables: /bic/pzproduct,
    DATA ITAB like /bic/pZproduct occurs 0 with header line.
    select * from /bic/pzproduct into table itab where /bic/zproductlike 'misc%' and /bic/t_miscper is not null.
    Loop at DATA_PACKAGE.
    Loop at itab where
    /bic/zproduct <> DATA_PACKAGE-/bic/zproduct.
    DATA_PACKAGE-/bic/zslsgm = 0.
    DATA_PACKAGE--/bic/zinvlines = 0.
    DATA_PACKAGE-/bic/zsalesamt  = 0.
    Modify DATA_PACKAGE.

  • New Key figures and Macro updates

    Is there a way to ensure that a change in the data view design  by adding additional key figures and changing the positions of the key figures/macros DOES NOT result in changes in Macros already present. This seems a little ridiculuous when i compare this to spreahseet functions, where only fixed references in the cells  are impacted by changes in rows and columns, adding columns and deleting rows etc, else the formulas/macros in excel adjust automatically. The Macros in my planning are adjusted and deactivated after inserting some more key figures and shuffling some up and down to organize the book for some new functionalities. Is there a report/technique to reset the macros so that they work as intended with proper references as defined.

    As Somnath says this is unfortunately the "normal" behaviour of the system. The macro workbench basically allocates a number to each key figure internally, so if new key figures are introduced, or even if you change the order of key figures in the data view, then this can affect the macro functionality.
    As long as the new key figure is introduced and placed at the end of the list in the data view then this will not normally affect the macro, it just needs re-activating.
    I find it frustrating when I have to re-order key figures in a data view then I have to check all macros are still working correctly and that the key figures used in the macro are the correct ones but unfortunately SAP will just say "as designed"!!

    Not sure what you mean by that: is that URL in an image, or is it actual text?
    If it is in an image, then you need to extract the image, edit it with something like Photoshop, then add it back to the PDF.
    If the URL is actual text, I suggest that you remove the entire URL, then add the corrected link.

    You'll need to contact the previous owner to get them to remove the account.
    There is no way to bypass this security feature. If you can't contact the previous owner you have wasted your money and have a phone you'll never be able to use.

  • Adding new key figures to DP planning area

    I am using APO DP.
    When adding new key figures to a planning area, is there any way of avoiding having to deinitialise and then re initialise the planning area?
    Thanks for any advice on this...

    First of, let us know which version of DP are you using.
    If you are using 7.0, all you need to do is right click on your planning area and select Change Keyfigure setting and you should be able to update the key figures there.
    The below is from SAP help for SAP APO 7.0, you should be able to add the key figure without deinitializing the planning area.
    Key Figure Settings
    Here you can change the properties of the key figures of a planning area, if the planning area has already been initialized. You can also add or delete key figures. However, you can only delete key figures that are no longer used in planning books, data views, macros, or demand forecasts. You can find out in which objects a specific key figure is used with the where-used list.
