Filling an Infocube with sample data without loading it!
I was recently taking part in a Business objects training and we have had there a situation in which one of the BW infocubes we were working on was empty. Not only was it empty it also didn’t have any transformations and loading processes. I then remembered using program CUBE_SAMPLE_CREATE in the past to demo the data model for users quickly without having the efforts of dataflow development. I have used the program to fill the Infocube in no longer than a minute.
This program allows you to fill a premade infocube with data, based either on master data, data entry or randomly generated data.
First use SE38 with the program.
The infocube will have a new request with the generated data.
It’s very useful for quick demonstration of a data model for a business user.
