How-to Load a File into BW-Integrated Planning (Version 3)

Hello Friends of Integrated Planning,

thank you very much for all the feedback I received on the File Upload/Download how-to over the past years. I have great news: Basically every development request has been implemented! Yes, this means that there is a big load of new features available with version 3. Upload and download of CSV files and a new user interface that allows the preview of the file and plan data before you save it are just two of the highlights. The new version is also compatible with SAP NetWeaver BW 7.4.




Minimum release to use the new version is SAP NetWeaver BW 7.30.



You can download the complete how-to guide as well as the solution from SAP Note 2053696.



The following list shows the changes and enhancements compared to the previously published version 2.4:

  • Enabled conversion exit in variable screen
  • Removed context info from message output (can be enabled again with show_messages parameter)
  • Added search help for all selection fields including special characteristics like fiscal period
  • Added check that 0INFOPROV must be filled for uploads on MultiProviders
  • Support for CSV format for upload and download (new parameters for data separator and escape character)
  • Improved auto-detection of file format
  • Added info messages to display version and detected file format
  • New parameter for checking for duplicate records
  • New parameter to define display of +/- sign for download
  • New and improved alternative user interface
  • Function to generate the required master data for ZIP_* InfoObjects
  • Added BADI for performing custom transformations during upload and download
  • Integrated File Upload/Download with Report-Report-Interface
  • New parameter setting for download to select field description instead of technical name in header line
  • Automatic recognition of UTF byte-order-mark during upload
  • Added ready-for-input variables for all parameters
  • Added support for XLS format for upload with SAPGUI
  • Added load from application server (which enables upload from and download to Analysis Office)
  • File Upload is now supported for SAP NetWeaver BW 7.4
  • Updated screen shots in how-to guide to show GUI-based planning modeler and web-based file upload/download application




Here are a few screen shots of the version 3 user interface (Note: The old UI is still available in the version 3 transport). For more details, please refer to the how-to guide (see "Download" section above).
