in order to access a DSO/ODS structure using a universe, you have first to build a multiprovider on top of your DSO/ODS and then create a BW Query which accesses your multiprovider.



PS: FYI: Crystal Reports is able to access directly DSO/ODS objects.

Thanks for the reply...

1. So do we not access ODS in the BO designer or Web I rich Client ..

2. Is that the only way(by creating muliprovider) to access the ODS. If there is any alternate method pls specify
