Webi Report on .Xml file

Hi Experts,

I am trying to create Webi report on top of .xml file. I have created Connection in IDT using "XML file Connector". Connection is success but when I am trying to create Data Foundation layer, getting error and not able to see any table or column. Please help.

Please let me know if there is any specific format of .xml file.

Tool: IDT 4.1 Support Pack 5

Please see attached screenshot.

Thanks,

Anuj

    Hi Anuj,

    As per the Data Access Guide of BI 4.1 SP5 (http://help.sap.com/businessobject/product_guides/sbo41/en/sbo41sp5_data_acs_en.pdf), the xml files should be based on xsd schemas.

    In the Guide (highlighted above) there is a sample xml and xsd content available (on Page 92).

    Try with that and see if it works or not. If it works then you can make the same changes in your xml file.

    Hope it helps!

    Regards,

    Adil
