SAP/BW Query Elements Demystified – Part 1

What was your first feeling when you saw a transport with the query you wanted to transport? Did you feel lost? embarased? angry? entertained? I remember very well that I was really confused, when saw something like this for the firt time:
Example query transport

I looked at this transport content, and could not undertand why there are 323(!) objects with strange names, when all I wanted to move were just 3 queries… Do I tranport something extra, something that is not needed, or not required to be transported now? If there are so many objects for very few queries, how would I know that ALL needed objects are in the transport?

It took me some time before I learned to understand the content of transports created with BEx Suite, and this is the learnings I want to share with you in the series of my blogs. So, part two will be about what Query Elements ARE, and what ARE NOT.
