DB Connect to MS SQL Server: No tables or views available

I implemented a MS SQL Server database as source system to the BI system.

I followed OSS note 512739 for creating a special user and created views in capital letters for data extraction.

My problem is that I do not see any tables or views.

Any suggestions?

    In BW go to transaction RSDBC - enter the source system then for tables enter * and press execute.

      That is exactly my problem. That I do not see any tables or views in that transaction.

      I know that the problem has to do with autorizations in MS SQL Server, because with the super user "su" it is working fine.

      But I want to use my special user with no system admin authorizations.

    Hi Thomas

    Go To Source System, in the DB Connect Connection Parameter, Created SQL system should be there. Make a Right in SQL system, select the option "Select Data Base Tables". Another one screen "DB Connect: Select Tables and Views" get shown to user. Execute the Screen, it will show you all the tables & Views.

    Double click the created view & generate the view.

    Come to BW side, Replicate your SQL Source System.

    You will find your view (In BI 3.5)

    In BI 7.0, Create Data Source using that VIEW, and do your useual validations.

    Hope now you clear (Let me know, still if you have any problems)

      I solved the problem myself.

      I had to create a DB schema with the name of my DB user.

      I added (moved) my DB views to the newly created DB schema.

      Now I see my DB views.

      It seems, that SAP BI is only showing objects of the DB schema with the same name of the DB connection user.
