    Hi Madhu,

    For Answer1,

    1. Create BW datastore and establish a connection to the BW system.

    2. Under Datastore->Master Transfer structure, import the info Source by name.

    3. Use the same as the target table.

    Flow should be like

    Source(Flat file /Excel) -> Query Transfrom -> Target (BW info source)

    Please let me know if it is useful.
