    If you are to load data from a flat file (or external file) and you need to incorporate the infopackage into a process chain, you cannot select Client Workstation on the External tab of the Infopackage. You must load from the Application Server, because this is the only location recognized by the server. A background job cannot recognize your workstation.

    The rest of the parameters on the External tab are related to the file itself, defining the type of file and where the file is located.

    Hope this helps.
