  4. 4. SAP BPC NW 7.5 Complex Data (SAP GL) Load Scenario Analysis Using 1. Data Files, 2. Conversion Files, 3. Transformation File 1. Business Scenario In a real time business scenario, it’s common for the business users to load data into BPC applications. In addition to using the input schedules, users can also bulk load the data from flat files using BPC Data Manager. BPC data manager offers a simple user interface easy for the business users to understand. Both transaction and master data can be imported using Data Manager. Data Manager can support many different scenarios including data manipulation using default logic and integration with Process Chains. However, default logic and Process Chain integration can be one time setup after which business users can run or schedule the data load without being concerned about the technical details behind it. 2. Document Objective This guide will provide all the steps necessary to load transaction data into a BPC application. It covers 5 different scenarios in which the data loads can happen. There are other scenarios not covered by this guide. They can be explored once the Fundamentals given in this guide are understood. Implemented Business Scenarios: Scenario 1: GL Data load with 1 Transformation and 1 Conversion File Scenario 2: GL Data load with 1 Transformation and 2 Conversion Files Scenario 3: GL Data load with 1 Transformation and 1 Conversion File with Multiple Sheets Scenario 4: GL Data load with 1 Transformation and 1 Conversion File with Formula Scenario 5: GL Data load with 1 Transformation and 1 Conversion File with instruction to skip records See below for the logical flow diagrams:_______________________________________________________________________Authors:Kumaraguru Sivasakthivel, SAP BPC ConsultantE-mail: kumar-guru@hotmail.comJothi Periasamy, SAP EPM (BI, BPC &BOBJ) Subject Matter Expert (SME) & Finance Transformation ArchitectE-Mail: JoeSaran@Gmail.comLinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/jothiperiasamy Page: 4 of 45
