how to find out data source for a datawindow?

I have a datawindow and I want to identify it's datasource.

I open this datawindow in pb. then in design menu, Data Source is disabled. It means not direct sql

Then I go to Column Specific(small window), and right click on any space, in the popup menu, there is no 'Stored Procedure...'. It means not procedure.

(see screeshot attached)

then how to find out the data source for this datawindow?

    Hi Kent;

    1) I would use the RHMB on the DWO in the System Tree and select the "Edit Source" option.

    2) In the DWO source, locate the "TABLE ( ...." line

    3) If the next major line starts with "DATA(...." then this is an external DWO.

    4) If the next major line starts with "Retrieve(...." then this is a normal DWO (SQL or SP based).

    5) If the next major line starts with "webservice=(WSDL...." then this is a Web Service based DWO.

    Note: if your DWO has no #3, 4 or 5, then its external.

    HTH

    Regards ... Chris
