Exporting HANA table to flat file using Data Services 4.1 only

Very Urgent

I need to export a HANA table to a flat file using data services only since the job needs to be scheduled. I also need to add two empty columns to the file. I searched but found videos to load from flat file to HANA and not the other way around.

Please write in detail how to do it. Really appreciated.

Thanks in advance

    1. Start by building a dataflow with your HANA table as a source and a query transform.
    2. Open the query transform, drag and drop all columns from input to output schema.
    3. Add 2 extra columns to the output schema (right-click on a column and select "New output column..."
    4. Create a flat file format from a Query (http://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/EIM/How+to+create+a+flat+file+format+from+a+Query)
    5. Drag and drop the file format into the dataflow. Connect the dots.
