hi Neel,

It is not clear which DataSources are available in which Releases and which should be used.

Additional key words

0EC_CS_1, 0EC_CS_1A, 3EC_CS_1, 3EC_CS_1A

Cause and prerequisites


In 4.0B and 4.5B, SAP delivers DataSources 0EC_CS_1 and 0EC_CS_1A.

As of Release 4.6B, SAP does not deliverDataSources for EC-CS transaction data any more, the customer must generate them in the BW IMG of the source system (settings for application-specific DataSources -> Enterprise Controlling -> create Customizing for extractors in the consolidation). these generated DataSources are called 3EC_CS_1 and 3EC_CS_1A.

The generation is required because as of 4.6B you have the option to create customer-defined subassignments. As a result, the DataSource definition may differ from customer to customer.

What is the difference between 0EC_CS_1 and 0EC_CS_1A or 3EC_CS_1 and 3EC_CS_1A?

In PlugIn 2000.1, an new extractor FCIW_BIW_GET_DATA_NT was delivered, the extraction logic of this new extractor was significantly advanced compared to the previous extractor FCIW_BIW_GET_DATA_A.

This new extractor is assigned to DataSources 0EC_CS_1A and 3EC_CS_1A. Refer to the onLine documentation for the Business Content and to the extractors for EC-CS for more detailed information on the new extractor.

The following overview illustrates which DataSources are available in which Release and with which extractor they are connected:








Release | 45B | 0EC_CS_1 | 0EC_CS_1A |








SAP recommends using DataSources 0EC_CS_1A and 3EC_CS_1A. However, you have to delete the InfoCube contents before you change from the old to the new extraction logic. Subsequently you have to load the data completely with the new extractor.
