BW Extraction using DS returning empty records


I am trying to extract data using BO DS 3.2 into BW 7.0. I am using BW as well as ECC 6.0 as a source in two separate jobs. I have setup a new source system which for BO DS in BW.

The RFSserver is up and running

However whenever I am running the extract I am getting empty records i.e. records do get extracted but they are blank. The job runs successfully in BO DS. I cna see it in BW in rsmo as having run successfully.

I have tried extracting to a flat file from BO DS and that returns records

I have tried debugging by setting a breakpoint just after my transorm and just before it passes data to the transfer stucture. In all positions I am able to see data exept in my final target. In the PSA also i am getting null records.

I have used an ABAP flow as weel as a normal Data Flow.

Any help would be appretiated

Thanks & Regards

    Vinieth Kuruppath -

    Yes you can use ABAP DF inside normat data flow to extract the SAP ECC data into BODS. put SAP tables and join them with relevant queries. jott your queries with Data transport to hold the data. This all will be inside a single ABAP data flow.

    for BW Integration you have to use open hub destinationa mechanism. also see below link for modelling a connection between BO & BW

    BW 7.30: Modeling integration between SAP Business Objects Data Services and BW | Part 1 of 2 – Connect Source System

    hope it helps

    Problem resolved.

    It was an issue related to setting the correct Codepage UTF-8 in both the Datastore in DS as well as in the locale manager

      I actually meant the DS locale is one of the Data Services Client components


      Normally "Use deafult locale settings" is selected there as the default option. You could select "Use the following locale settings"

      Language - Eng

      Terriroty - us

      Code Page - urf-8

      Hope this helps
