Gerneric Datasource


Hi Experts,

I have a problem with a generic Datasource in BW 3.5!

I want to extract data (txt) from a view in an another sourcesystems to the BW. I have added the corresponding source system with RFC to the BW. Then I have create a generic Datasource in the source system. I run RSA3 and I get the right data.

But how I get this data in my BW? I have an error in reasoning - I try to use the datasource - which I create in the sourcesystem - in rsa3 in the BW but (sure) it doesn`t exists. But If I create the same Datasource in the BW I can`t choose the corresponding VIEW (because this view doesn`t exists in the BW but rahter in the source systems).

What I have forgot alternatively what I have made wrong?

Thanks very much for all answers and hints!
