Creating a Characteristic in BW - SAP BW

Now we need to create a characteristic, which we will name ZVENDOR. Table shows how we match the R/3 table fields to the characteristic ZVENDOR and its attributes.

The characteristic ZVENDOR does not need to have an attribute for the field MANDT. The field MANDT is used to group the LFM1 data into clients (see Section). Our earlier replication of DataSources from the source system SND_250 (Screen) has already determined the client from which to extract data.Section provided the procedure for creating a characteristic. To save space,the work instructions here focus only on what is special to ZVENDOR.

Work Instructions:
Step 1. Repeat the procedure in Section,"Creating InfoObjects—Characteristics," to create the ZVENDOR characteristic.Select CHAR as the DataType,enter 10 as the field Length,and then click the Attributes tab to add the attributes.
