Unable to extract data from SQL2005 via DB Connect.

hi all,

My DB connect is connected ok, can select which DB view to extract data, DataSource can be created based on one of DB view, all fields from DB view is visible, when attempt to extract or perform the "Preview" on a small set of records, say 20, it returns the following message:

SQL error "208" with message: "Invalid object name 'ELEC_PRIC'."

The "ELEC_PRIC" DB view, it is working properly, all previliges are checked, table names are all in capital, can run the DB view in the SQL 2005, data returned.

i have tried the similar test, i have no problem when doing the same with SQL 2000 DB server, the data content is similar, so are the fields.

does anyone know if it is SQL version issue or is there a problem with BI version being incompatible? i am SP9 with many many corrections implemented, SP15 will be implemented in a few weeks time.

    Dear all,

    FYI, the problem is now resolved.

    The DB user used by SAP BI didn't have the correct schema assigned properly in user mapping properties on the login setting of the SAP BI user. So if you were to use a DB user, make sure the user mapping schema is set to the same as DB user NOT dbo and DB views are created under SAP BI DB user not dbo.
