OBIEE - Replace Column or Table in Logical Table Sources utility


By on August 31, 2013



It is used to replace the columns or tables from physical layer to business model mapping layer.

The Replace Wizard automates the process of replacing physical columns or tables in logical table sources
by allowing the Oracle BI Administrator to select the sources from those displayed.

The wizard prompts the Oracle BI Administrator to replace columns as well as tables in both 10g and 11g.

Using single Column replace from physical to logical it affects the change in the mapping of physical table in BMM layer of logical table.


For example see below:

I am having the table name as “Absence_leave” with 12 columns.


Just I am going to map the physical column Absence_type to asondate.

Now check the mapping in the BMM layer of the logical column.

So “asondate” mapped with “asondate” before using replace wizard.

After replacing “asondate” have to map with “Absence_type”. And the data type also will get change. Before for asondate the data type is date, now check after the replace.



Asondate column mapping with Absence_type and the data type changed to varchar.
