Result

You have learned how to use BW Monitor to display the status of data loads and to find out when, where, and how errors (if any arose) occurred.

To examine the status of other data loads, we can click graphics/dataload.gif in Screen 4.10. In the new screen, we can specify selection conditions to display the status of the data loads in which we are interested (Screen 4.11). For example, by clicking graphics/user.gif in the Further selections block, we can specify user-related selection conditions.
