    Have you created The cleansing package repository using Repository Manager tool? if so can you "Get Version" from the same tool, does this work?

    Hi John,

    In SAP Business Objects Data Services XI3.2 you have to create a seperate metadata if you want Cleansing package repository alone, or you can you use the same Local Repository for Cleansing Package but for both the options you have to create cleansing package tables using Data Services Repository Manager for more details refer below URL.

    Data Cleanse Transform (Data Services 3.x):


    Hope this will help you as well.

    • Daya,

      In DS 3.2 (which is EOL by the way), the Cleansing Package is installed differently from 4.x (which Daya is describing in the last post so that does not apply here) and the repository manager is used to seed the data.

      I wonder if you really do have the Cleansing Package from a 3.2 install. WIth 4.1, all of the separated person_firm files were consolidated into a single person_firm file. I haven't encountered the error you see with anyone in the past but I also would never have tried using a 4.1 Cleansing Package in a 3.2 environment.

      I would suggest you confirm that the CP is really from 3.2. (Since it's EOL, you won't be able to obtain an old package from SMP so you will need to have it already downloaded.)

      Another thought is to ensure you are following the documented install steps from the DS 3.2 Install Guide... seciton

      Installing cleansing packages.

      You must first extract the package for 3.2 which was downloaded from SMP prior to trying to run setup.exe to install it.

      Hope this helps.
