Drill from BO Financial Consolidation via FIM to ECC using BW as source
In order to support customer's requirements we are sourcing data from SAP BW to SAP BO FC via Data Service and FIM. I read a lot of articles stating that if ECC extractors are direct source for BODS/FIM and BO FC, then you can use FIM function of drilling to the source and drilling to the origin - it means ECC transaction. Example - If I'm using 0FI_GL_10 as a source for the extraction of data from ECC directly via BODS and FIM to FC, I can drill from FIM to transaction FS10n to see my accounts and balances.
Do you know if this is possible when using BW as a source of data for FC? I mean - I'm using standard data flow in BW for 0FI_GL_10 and then using OHD on top of InfoCube to extract data via BODS and FIM to FC. Now, Is it possible to drill from FC via FIM to ECC transaction FS10n? If so, can you send the instruction of how to do this?
Thank you in advance,

As Marc stated, you will be able to perform drill to origin when BW is your source of data in FIM.
However, for drilling to source that wont be possible since the feature is only available for FIM jobs whose source datastore is ECC (Financial Information Management with SAP ECC - Enterprise Performance Management - SCN Wiki)
