BW4HANA : Unable to create Flat File Datasource in BW Modeling Perspective

Hi all,

We are using BW4HANA System & we have installed BW4CONT & BW4CONTB Add on. For a specific requirement we are trying to load data into BW through Flat File. To begin with, we have created a Flat File Source System (Right click on 'New', then 'Source system' option selected ) under 'Datasources' folder in the BW Modeling perspective in HANA Studio. We are facing the below obstacles.
1. The Application Component hierarchy is not being displayed under the Flat File Source system, but is available under the replicated R/3 datasource.
2. When we right click on Flat File to create a new Data Source, the

up wizard requires us to select an application component. But in the search window, there are no Application Component available for the flat file datasource which can be selected.

Please do let me know whether have i missed any step while creating the Flat file source system or during Datasource creation or during content installation.


Attaching the Screen shot of the issue.

    You must first create an Application Component for your File source system and then you can assign Datasource with new Application component.
