Different Types of Delta Updates

What is the different delta updates and when to use which updates?

Delta loads will bring any new or changed records after the last upload. This method is used for better loading in less time. Most of the std SAP datasources come as delta enabled, but some are not. In this case you can do a full load to the ODS and then do a delta from the ODS to the cube. If you create generic datasources, then you have the option of creating a delta on Calday, timestamp or numeric pointer fields (this can be doc number, etc).

You'll be able to see the delta changes coming in the delta queue through RSA7 on the R3 side.

To do a delta, you first have to initialize the delta on the BW side and then set up the delta. The delta mechanism is the same for both Master data and Transaction data loads.

There are three deltas:
Direct Delta: With this update mode, the extraction data is transferred with each document posting directly into the BW delta queue. In doing so, each document posting with delta extraction is posted for exactly one LUW in the respective BW delta queues.

Queued Delta: With this update mode, the extraction data is collected for the affected application instead of being collected in an extraction queue, and can be transferred as usual with the V3 update by means of an updating collective run into the BW delta queue. In doing so, up to 10000 delta extractions of documents for an LUW are compressed for each DataSource into the BW delta queue, depending on the application.

Non-serialized V3 Update:With this update mode, the extraction data for the application considered is written as before into the update tables with the help of a V3 update module. They are kept there as long as the data is selected through an updating collective run and are processed. However, in contrast to the current default settings (serialized V3 update), the data in the updating collective run are thereby read without regard to sequence from the update tables and are transferred to the BW delta queue.

Step by Step guide on BADI with Filter implementation

Step 1 à Before implementing filter objects to a BADI. We need to deactivate all the implementation for that BADI. Go to SE18 (BADI definition) and from there navigate to all BADI implementation to view all the active implementations for that BADI
Select the BADI implementations listed on the screen and deactivate the implementation. Once done, return back to the initial screen of SE18 and proceed with next step. Step 2 à go to SE18 – BADI Definition screen and change the existing BADI definition that we created in the earlier tutorial. Select the FILTER –DEPENDENT check box under the TYPE section. This will open up the FILTER TYPE field for inputs. And do an F1 on the FILTER TYPE field. Click on the F4 on the FILTER TYPE field name and enter some search criteria to find a relevant data element. And click on the continue button
Select the data element from the list to set up your filter and hit enter. Click on the save button and active the BADI definition. If a BADI implementation alre…

Creating Hierarchies


In the InfoObject maintenance, the indicator with hierarchies is set for the relevant characteristic, meaning that the characteristic can have hierarchies.


Step 1: Select the InfoObject tree in the Administrator Workbench.
If you have assigned the characteristic to an InfoObject catalog, select the corresponding InfoObject catalog for an InfoArea.
If the characteristic does not belong to an InfoObject catalog, select the Not Assigned Nodes InfoArea and the Not Assigned Characteristics InfoObject catalog.

Step 2:Select the characteristic for which you want to create a hierarchy, choose the context menu with the right mouse button, and then Create hierarchy.

Step 3:In the dialog box, enter the technical hierarchy name, or the hierarchy version if applicable, the time-reference, and at least one short description of the hierarchy. Confirm your entries. You come to the screen Maintain hierarchies. You can now define your hierarchy here.
