    Prasad,

    You have to define the file (folder path) connection in CMC.

    a) Logon to CMC

    b) Click on the Information Steward

    c) Click on Connections

    d) right click on open area and select New -> Connection

    e) Change the connection type to 'File Connection' and enter the path of the folder on the job server where the file is located.

    Once you create the file connection in CMC successfully, you can select the file in Information Steward and profile the data.

    Thanks
