Rehersing DT is vital. I'd start with looking at the order of the types of items in which the original DT files are generated. I start with all the filters, then the attributes, then the windows, queries and then processes.
thanks for your reply. Do you mean the attribute filters or all filters generally. I did have to remove the attribute filter selectors prior to exporting the business objects and attributes. I have put them back in again now but i'm still getting the same message
I'm opting for building the process in a test env and then TTL it over now
I take all the filters across first and any associated attributes as the first step in any DT. Then the other attributes
Right. Actually DT them across befoire anything else. I suppose that you could end up with a chicken and egg situation if your filters contain any new attributes.
I think that there was just so much design work to transfer that I lost track of what it all was.
It's turning into a bit of a nightmare
I've spent a fair amount of time getting the order of these bits and bobs correct and I think you will be fine. I have developed a few queries to look at things like the ATTRIBUTE TYPE table to show those attributes that have filters and which have been modified within a certain date range. There is rather too much IP in those for me to offer to upload them, but the principle could be followed to generate queries which then show attributes which have been modified, windows, queries.... business object reports.
That sounds like just the thing actually. I'll put a bit of time into this I think. Either that or take better notes.
I'm also suspicious that it may have been a calculation in a decision on the process
Thanks for the advice and weekend reply Dave
