Is it possible to load flat file data residing on a local machine via BODS 4.2 or flat file should reside on BODS server?


Hi All,

I have a requirement to load data from flatfiles stored on particular location, on a machine on which BODS client istallation is there.

I am able to create a flat file format by browsing the file location and giving file name.I can view the file data also.

But when I execute the job, job failswith the error "Cannot open file <D:/BODS_flatfiles/result.txt>. Check its path and permissions".

Please let me know whether it is possible to load data from flat file on a local machine, which has BODS4.2 client installated on it or the flat file should reside in a path in BODS job server ?
