NDSO – load data without a data flow

I was watching and doing this video tutorial:

SAP HANA Academy – DWF: NDSO – Introduction to HANA native datastore objects

Which I strongly recommend if you are interested in SAP HANA Data Warehousing Foundation . 

(Note that as announced by Axel Meier in this blog SAP SQL Data Warehouse trial I was using a Trial version deployed from CAL.SAP.COM to do my own testing.)

When you create an aDSO in BW or BW/4 if you want to load data, you need to create a dataflow (a mechanism to load data); now with NDSO, you can load data straight from the Advanced tab from the manage option.

While getting familiar with the manage NDSO screen, I noticed that in the advanced tab, there is an option to load data: (marked with a 1) in the image below

The 3 options are documented in SAP’s help. First time I see screenshots in SAP’s help pages.

Here is a video demonstrating the load from a text file without a dataflow:


Any other cool features you have found about NDSOs?
