Hi All,

I am trying to trigger a process chain with a simple data load event using an infopackage and a start variant. I am getting the following error:

Invalid data source: PC_FILE (valid values: A, C)

Can anyone explain wht is the reason for this error?

THank you

    Hi Deep,

    It seems that your Infopackage is to load data from a flat file...have you tried to run this InfoPackage on its own, outside the process chain?

      Hi Bhanu,

      I did execute the InfoPackage seperately outside the process chain and it works well. Could you explain wht is causing the problem in the process chain then?

      THank you

    If your Infopackage is loading data from a flat file on your workstation (or connected drive), then you cannot execute the Infopackage in a Process Chain. You need to put your flat file on the Application Server and change your Infopackage to load from there instead of the workstation. The reason is that the Infopackage in a Process Chain is executing from a background job and does not have direct access to your local drive(s). It does have access to the Application Server (viewable from tx AL11).

      When you drill down, can you see the file you want? If you do, then if you double click on the file name, a window will appear asking whether you want to <b>Disp. cont.</b> (display the file contents) or <b>Copy name</b>. If you select <b>Copy name</b>, then the complete path will be copied into the file name area in the Infopackage. You may notice that the complete path may not include all the subdirectory names you have put in your name before.

      Otherwise, maybe you have an authority issue to the file on the Application Server.
