Re: Preview Data2013-01-09T14:38:30Z in response to SystemAdminI am assuming you are using TEXT data type as a data source Tab.
In the case of Text files, if you cant see the data in the preview then there could be a couple of reasons. First check the path and file name in the Data Source Name and *Data Source Name on the Server *
Also check if you have Read Access rights on the source text file.
Last point (although its not related to your issue), if we have got a text file open in Excel and then if we try to execute the TI process we will get error "Unable to read the data source". This is because Excel puts a Read lock on the file and you will have to close the file in Excel so that the Read lock is released.
