Connecting to External DB from SAP BW

Dear All, We have installed SAP BW 3.1C on SQL Server Database. We need to connect to an external Oracle Database. Has anyone tried this scenario ? We are trying this thru DB Connect. We are able to connect to external DB. But after selecting the tables we got stuck. It is saying "selection of tables ABC not allowed because of lower case letters" We have installed the dboraslib.dll which was there in LIB_DBSL_1266-10001667.SAR. How to proceed from here ? regards

Hi mpm966,

Unfortunately you cannot retrieve lowercase data to BW. You have to create DB views on source DB to convert the data to uppercase. Check SAP note #512739

Hope this helps
