Reconstruction of InfoCubesLocate this document in the navigation structure


With this function, you can fill an InfoCube with requests that have already been loaded into another InfoCube.

This function is only necessary for InfoCubes that obtained their data from InfoPackages. Only the InfoPackage requests are displayed. For InfoCubes that were loaded with a data transfer process, also supply other objects with this data using data transfer processes.


This function is particularly useful if you are loading deltas, that is, data that you cannot request again from the source system.


You have created a new InfoCube with update rules.


You can select an InfoCube, an InfoSource, a time frame or a source system, where all the requests that have already been loaded for your selection are displayed. You can choose individual requests, and use them to reconstruct the InfoCube.

You can start loading or scheduling the InfoCube immediately in the background, or set it so that it is triggered by an event.

If the requests contained in the InfoCube were already rolled up in aggregates or in BW accelerator indexes, you can no longer use these requests for reconstructing. Only the last (uppermost) requests can be used for reconstruction.
