Creating an export datasource for an InfoCube

Hello All,

I have created an InfoCube - I now have to create an "export datasource" for the InfoCube. Is there a difference between a "datasource" and an "export datasource". From reading up it seems that datasources are created on the R/3 system and replicated into BW, but what about an "export datasource". I have put the InfoCube in a transport and will be putting the "export datasource" in the same transport before releasing into the production system.

Thank you and kind regards,

Export datasource is used when you want to use BW system as a source system. If you want to send data from one datatarget to other data target within BW system then we go for export data source. right click on the target and say export data source and then go to source system tab

right click on Myselof source system and say replicate data source..then you will find datasource with prefix 8.
