New GL and BW extractors

Folks, when we use the GL_10 datasource we dont seem to get document # information.

So do we still use GL_4 datasource. Does this mean Bseg will still be populated. I understand there are new tables like FAGLFLEXA and FAGLFLEXT from which GL_10 extracts.

I dont understand why SAP did not give an extractor for document number. I hear about gl_14 extractors but cant see in RSA5.

So what is the new business content which truly replaces the GL_4.

Also if we are not using GL_4 anymore do we have new set of datasource for AP and AR as AP_4 and AR_4 are coupled with GL_4. Or do I need to apply an OSS note and decouple.

Confused. What is the new GL, AP, AR content that replaces the _4 extractors.

Appreciate a response.

You can get doc info from 0FI_GL_4.

Yes, Check out 0FI_GL_14 which is based off FAGLFLEXA, BSEG & BKPF.

All three are independent of each other now.

With BW PlugIn 2001.1 (BW Release 3.0A) the consistent data extraction into the BW Sytem with the Delta update procedure is now delivered for the line items of the G/L accounting (FI-GL), of the accounts receivable accounting (FI-AR) and of the accounts payable accounting (FI-AP). The new DataSources 0FI_GL_4, 0FI_AR_4 and 0FI_AP_4 use a time stamp method instead of the BW Delta queue in the R/3 source system in order to determine the Delta dataset.This note describes the transfer from the old extraction procedure (DataSources 0FI_AP_3 and 0FI_AR_3) to the new extraction procedure (DataSources 0FI_GL_4, 0FI_AP_4 and 0FI_AR_4).
