DTP options

hi All,

I have seen many threads regarding DTP and would like to know which option is better to have in the DTP to manage error handling. We have four options in the DTP:

1) Deactivated(Switched off).

2) No update, No reporting

3) Update valid records, no reporting(request red)

4) Update valid records, reporting possible.

The reason i have started this thread is to find out the best practice to use the DTP for BI loads. Also, based on your experiences, which options should i go for DTP and for fixing the error loads,editing the data,etc.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance....


Hi Dorson,

When the error handling is set to Update valid records, no reporting(request red), DTP allows you to update valid data, the entire request turns red in case of errors. The advantage is that any errors occured during extraction is very visible (due to the red request). Disadvantage is, the data from the red request cannot be reported on.

With Update valid records, reporting possible (request green), the request is green irrespective of error records (upto a maximum limit of error records, to be set by user). Advantage, if very few records have errors, the correct updated records can be reported upon.
