Use BW Queries to Display Comments on BW Data

Find out how to implement a BW InfoCube to enable users to query comments out of the BW Document Repository Manager that have been created on BW transactional data.
Key Concept
During a planning process or reporting process users may enter comments on the data to quantify the result. A process controller uses these comments to challenge or to include the data in a reporting pack.

Your users employ SAP NetWeaver BW to analyze and report on their data. They may add additional text information for other users to access, such as comments. To access this comment data, other users need to use a query that includes the exact combination of characteristics to display the comment.

This can be time intensive for users who view the data at an aggregated level. I describe how you can implement an SAP NetWeaver BW InfoCube that allows you to create a query that selects and displays these comments in SAP NetWeaver BW by using an SAP NetWeaver BW query.
