Hi there,


I am trying to do the BI upgrade from BW 3.5 to BI 7.0, and I am currently working on the preparation phase. I am struck at steps where they are mentioned about SAP NW BI: Converting Data Classes of infocubes. I am lilttel confused.  We are on OS/400 and DB2 UDB. Note: 46272 does have have to how to create new data class, however they are pointing us to this note: 163449, which talks about OS/390 and DB2. I believe this note is Sufficinet for our System (OS/400) as well?, However, non of those notes are describing on how to create a data class.


Can someone please tell me step by step how to create a new data class? and what do I exactly need to do in report "RSDG_DATCLS_ASSIGN"? 


Under the Assign Data class:

F4 on the Data Class till now: I have the following Data classes

APPL0     Master data, transparent tables
APPL1     Transaction data, transparent tables
APPL2     Organization and customizing
USER     Customer data class
USER1     Customer data class


I believe I need to run this report with OLD data class and map with new data class (that will be created under customer name space) to convert the info cubes, so we wont loose any data classes during the upgrade?


Question 1: How to create data class? step by step please.

Question 2: What is the next step after creating data classes?


Please advice.


Thanks In Advance.
