Not able to activate DSO


Hi Everyone,

I am not able to activate a DSO that I have created in APO BW. I get the error: "The creation of the export DataSource failed. The system could not create DataSource. The metadata for a DataSource must be created while the export InfoSouce is being generated".

- I have created a Source System, Data Source, Infopackage and could activate all of them. I could successfully upload data onto PSA in Infopackage from a flat file. Next, I created a DSO from the infoobjects. However, I get the above mentioned error, the moment I try to activate the DSO.
- I have checked all characteristics, Key figures and Attributes and found them active. Also, I have done the 'restore' operation for the Source system and re-activated the transfer chain, yet DSO could not be activated.
- I have done the consistency check for the created DSO and found it OK.

Appreciate, if anyone can guide me if I am missing any particular settings, that is not allowing activation of DSO.
