Loading MD from Flat File.

Hi all:

I am in NW2004s. I am trying to load MD from a flat file DS. The problem is that I can't see data in "Maintain Master Data" under the InfoObject in InfoProviders.

The InfoObject is SalDiv which was created with texts. The flat file has two fields: SalesDivID, SalesDivName. Example: "1; Mall Center"

My question is: Should a create 2 Transformations? (one for texts and one for attributes?) or one is enough....in that case, which one?

Thanks.

      Hi:

      I have just done what you said but still can´t see Master Data

      This is what I've done:

      - Create Transformation (mapping the two fields to InfoObject: DivisionID and TXTSH)

      - Create InfoPackage

      - Create DTP (Extraction Mode: Full, and after that: Execute)

      - InfoProvider -> InfoObject -> Activate Master Data

      - InfoProvider -> InfoObject -> Maintain Master Data.

      But no records to show...

      What else can I check?

    Hi

    Do yo see any record picked by DTP?

    was attributes pertaining to IO loaded?

    i hope..you have done following steps

    create the flat file sourcesytem

    then creaet datasource for text

    create IP(check preview before loading)

    once all the records have come to PSA(by scheduling IP)

    create a transformation (map the fileds)

    create DTP

    check the data in corresponding text table

    cheers,

      Hi Ranjit:

      I did the test. Deleted data from the IO and unchecked that control. I get no data and got the monitor with "red" icons saying "duplicate records". Again, checked the control and now data is OK, with all monitor icons in "green". Any idea?
