We have a COPA load from R3 to BW every day, and now it is failing. R3 people changes some structures in the COPA area from the R3 side. Now to I have to load data from R3 to BW with the new changes. For that what I have to do?

usually datasource replication followed by activating the transfer rules will meet our requirement to capture new changes
in case if there are any new fields added in the datasource...obvioulsy this can be accomplished by creating the new datasource with all new changes
chk this note:
"Adapting CO-PA DataSources
CO-PA DataSources cannot be enhanced using the standard SAP BW tools. If you adjust the operating concern (by adding or deleting characteristics or value fields), it is then no longer possible to simply edit the DataSource. You have to delete the DataSource and then create it again."
now,in BW side
1.replicate the datsource
2.activate transfer rules
and run the delta
in case of datsource enhancementif it happened in R/3 side...
3.map the new fileds in info source,update rules..
4.delte the contents of the cube
5.do reitialization(steps already mentiond in the previous post by wond)
