SAP BW: Plausibility Check in Transformations and Conversion Routines

In the SAP BW system, a plausibility check for an InfoObjects considers the following aspects

·         The use of small characters,
·         The use of special characters,
·         The plausibility of date fields,
·         The plausibility of time fields,
·         The use of character values in the fields of the NUMC data type, and
·         Correct observance of the ALPHA conversion routine 

Instead of using the Plausibility Check on DataSource level, you can implement a Plausibility Check using one of 2 approaches: 

1.     As a customer defined Conversion Routine in the InfoObject
2.     In a Routine within the Transformation 

Details of the approaches and sample source coding can be found in the SAP Note 1460342
