extract structure not existing/not active

Hello BWers,

I have transported my Data Mart settings to the new BW prod environment (not yet in production). However I get an error message when importing saying:

"The extract structure /BIC/CE8Z0PCA_C01 of the DataSource 8Z0PCA_C01 is invalid

Message no. R8444


An invalid extract structure has been assigned to the DataSource. An extract structure has to be active in the DDIC. It cannot be a view, since the customer is not able to add append fields for filling in the customer exits to a view."

I have checed and the structure doesn't exist. It automatically seems to have been added to dev package $TMP (local objects) and was therefor excluded from transport...

Now, what I wonder, is how do I get this missing structure into my production system? I have the data sources, but the actual structure is missing...

Best regards,

hi Fredrik,

seems you post the same questions twice,

as mentioned in your other thread, try 'generate export datasource' in your new production system.

also take a look similar problem

Export DataSource problem

Trasport error while trasporting the Masterdata infosource

hope this helps.
