Creating InfoObject Catalogs - SAP BW

Before we can create an InfoCube,we must have InfoObjects. Before we can create InfoObjects,however,we must have InfoObject Catalogs. Because characteristics and key figures are different types of objects,we organize them within their own separate folders,which are called InfoObject Catalogs. Like InfoCubes,InfoObject Catalogs are listed under InfoAreas.

Having created an InfoArea,let's now create InfoObject Catalogs to hold characteristics and key figures.
