In an effort to improve functionality and reduce maintenance efforts, SAP has released a “mini-feature” called pre-export check with SAP BW 7.3. With this, whenever you release a task or a request, the system checks if all the dependent objects, which are essentially required by the objects in the request, are included in the request. For example, if an InfoCube is included in the request, then the system checks if all the InfoObjects are included in the request. If a data transfer process is included in the request, then the check for its corresponding transformation is performed.
