Important Standard Tables in SAP BW & BW/4HANA
Below a list of some of the important standard SAP tables in a SAP Business Warehouse (BW) system with their description. Also there are some recommendations with reference SAP note on how to perform housekeeping and cleaning up of these BW tables.
This SAP Note covers data management for tables with a mainly technical background, e.g. used for:
- Logging, tracing
It doesn’t deal with application tables.
Furthemore there is also another SAP note which provides information about the processes to clean up and remove data from various tables of the various infoprovider types. For more information see SAP note 3232938 – How-To: Data Management for BW Infoprovider tables
Hope this helps.
It's always good to get good information repeated but why not just refer to:
Isn't it the same information?
That Wiki is quite old and some tables were missing and also the above mentioned SAP notes aswell, so I just added and updated the same here and I'll keep updating this as new stuff comes in as I do not have the authority to adjust anything there.
The wiki could be updated as well. To me that would make more sense. When you are not in SAP any more who will update your blog then?
I dont see this as an issue but thanks for the feedback.
We are using BW4HANA System. Do you think above Tables are still relevent for us.
A lot of older Classic and BW on HANA objects have become obsolete with the BW/4HANA version therefore from the above list not all tables will be applicable in your case if you are on BW/4HANA system.
For example with BW/4HANA you no longer have Infocubes but rather use ADSO's, and Infosets/MultiProvider which are replaced with Composite providers (HCPR) as an example, so not all of the tables you see in the list above will be applicable on BW/4HANA system.
You can get more information from SAP note (2421930) and the PDF attached to it if interested.
great summary, this list is handy for many BW tasks.
Just an idea for future to add the backend tables for ADSOs, HCPRs, Open ODS views, ODP .... if your time allows.

Thanks for sharing Shoaib.
I'd appreciate if you could share the texts and not the screenshots.
If I have a text file such as Excel, I could easily search for what I need.
