How to create flat file data source on BODI source system..

Hi Friends,

We are attempting to create a data source on BODI source system for extracting the Headcount files which will be used for extracting actual and plan flow data . The actual and plan data files (flat files will coming coming form BODI we are trying to create the data sources for the same but the systm is throwing up the error message "Data source object type RSDS not supported in BAPI source system" when we are trying to create the data source on the source system tryp (BODI) in RSA1.

Can anyone please suggest if we need to follow any specific procedure for creating the data sources for extracting the data from BODI based source systems.

the second point is will 3.x support the BODI type source system data sources?

your inputs will be of a great help..

Thanks ..

Hi,

I don't think you can create the data source on the source system type (BODI) in RSA1. You may have to connect through Web Services.

Please look at the Page: 14 in the following link:------

HI Suman,

Thanks a lot for the timely update, this has really given us a clarity in terms of the approach we must have , the business scenario here is that the required files will coming from people soft ERP for both the plan and actual data, which will be placed in the application server from where BW needs to fetch the data in to BW , its required to be pulled as full update as the files are flat files , we are using BI 7.0 version , do we need to mandatorily put an infosource for fetching the data?

Also if you could please help us in suggesting us if the files are placed in BODI server, then we need to create the data soures using web services interface only? when we are trying to create the non sap data source using RSA1> source systems-> and selecting BODI and attempting to create the data source its throwing up the error message " data source object type RSDS is not supported using BAPI").

your inputs will be of a great help, thanking you

Hi,

You will have to create WEB Services data source for BODI source system. Following link will help you in doing this :-
