182 Views

Hi Experts,

my organization has created job in data services 3.2 to cleanse the data reading from excel flat files. the folder path was store in the global variable(I think) and now they have changed the directories hence is it throwing me below error.

Error, Input file does not exist please confirm existence and restart job, 16 ) >

failed, due to error <50316>: <>>> Error, Input file does not exist please confirm existence and restart job>. I want to update the folder path. I am sure it would be easy but I am very new to BODS.

I want to update the folder path \\infra\finance\production\sales\Metadata\ALL_Metadata_SALES.xls to \\Home\BIData\finance\production\sales\Metadata\ALL_Metadata_SALES.xls


when i investigated WF_Metadata_files i saw there is a global called INPUT_DIR i assume I have to change the path there. I tried to find old directory in the batch job but i cant find it and even When i give value to global variable it is still pointing to old path.



Can anybody please help me.


Thanks

Tim
