Full-Init-Delta Loads


I have done full loads into a ODS and then I did Init with no data transfer. But the Message said that the request cannot be activated because the ODS has had full loads and activating INIT and DELTAS is not possible...Any Ideas?

Hi Ashwin,

there is a seperare procedure to activate delta mechanism in ODS. After you load the full requests you cannnot run init without making all the full requests to "Reapir full requests".

See SAP Note: 689964


You want to switch the upload procedure for an ODS object from full to delta. However, the delta initialization fails with a message indicating that there are already full uploads in the ODS object and therefore inits or deltas cannot be posted or activated.

Other terms

Delta; ODS object: delta initialization, RSM 098, full, Init

Reason and Prerequisites

If a full upload occurs once for an ODS object, you can no longer activate an init for the same DataSource/source system combination in this ODS object. The system does not check for overlapping selection conditions.


In the case if an ODS object, you can change the upload procedure from full to delta by subsequently marking the full requests that exist in the ODS object for this DataSource/source system combination as repair full requests.

These requests are therefore characterized by the fact that they can be posted into any data targets in any sequence. The repair full requests are never checked in a data target, that is, you can activate initializations and deltas (also with selections) in the ODS object. All ODS objects filled with these full requests behave as if the full requests did not exist in the ODS object.

Checks do not take place in all of these ODS objects.

Note the following:

Since the repair full requests are not checked, duplicate data records may be created or data may disappear if there is a subsequent init.

Since the repair full requests are not checked, you should take account of the extractor behavior, update modes, aggregational behavior of key figures and characteristics, among other things, when you are deciding whether you want to mark the full requests as repair full requests.

If you perform an init simulation after changing to repair full requests, make sure that no data is updated between the last full upload and the first delta upload.

Procedure for changing full requests to repair full requests:

After you import Support Package 19 (3.0B) or Support Package 13 (3.1C), the <b>RSSM_SET_REPAIR_FULL_FLAG report is available which you can use to convert all full requests for a DataSource/source system combination that are in an ODS object into repair full requests.

Before you import this Support Package:

Use transaction SE16 to call the RSSELDONE table.

Here, enter an "x" in the "Repair_Full" field for all full request records that you want to mark as repair full requests.</b>CAUTION: This ONLY concerns those requests that begin with 'REQU_...'. The repair flag CANNOT be set for activation requests that begin with 'ODSR_'.

If the full requests still exist in the PSA, you can also use the scheduler under the 'Scheduler' menu option in the PSA tree (when you post from the PSA) to switch a PSA full request to a repair full request before loading.

If you load new requests with an InfoPackage, you can also assign the repair indicator to this full report.
