SAP Data Services to transfer Flat File data to BW

Hello. Has anyone used SAP Data Services to transfer data via Flat files to BW? We are looking to transfer data from a temporary source system, on a daily basis, via a large number (30+) of existing flat files.

The file content is not delimited (- data is provided as one continous string). Also fields are not of fixed length. Each file has a metatdata file that provides field lengths. Is there any feature in Data Services that supports such a scenario? Appreciate your feedback.

Regards,

Sanjiv A

    Hi Hem

    Based in the Data Services Technical Manuals you've described a file format with

    unstructured text.

    This should not be a problem

    Regards
