7. Relationship between info cubes and aggregates

Learn the response to the seventh question in SearchSAP.com's exclusive BI/BW -- beginner-level quiz.

7. The following statements are true for info cubes and aggregates.

a. Requests cannot be deleted if info cubes are compressed.
b. A request cannot be deleted from an info cube if that request is compressed in the aggregates.
c. Deleting a request from the cube will delete the corresponding request from the aggregate, if the aggregate has not been compressed.
d. All of the above.


Once the info cubes are compressed it is not possible to delete data based on the requests. There won't be request IDs anymore. Requests can be deleted even if the requests in aggregates have been compressed. But the aggregates will have to be de-activated. Deleting an uncompressed request from an info cube will automatically delete the corresponding request from aggregate if the aggregate request has not been compressed.
