Connection problem solved - it was just an incomplete password. Doh!
I'm still having problems with linking though. I can now see the SAP database from the DxDatabook and add particular SAP tables into DxDatabook libraries. I can view and arrange visibility (configure) of single tables.
Now I want to link two tables horizontally (different table structures, but with a common field used to link them). The Mentor Help manual page "Arranging Library tables" shows exactly the situation I have - one table for parts, one for manufacturer, and a manuf ID in both to be the link.
The configuration editor allows me to add multiple SAP tables to the DxDatabook library and I can see both table structures and arrange visibility of the fields I want, but when I close the editor I get a variety of error messages like "Invalid column name in Table1", "Invalid column name in Field2",
"The link table does not contain links", "Incorrect syntax near 'FROM'." and so on. The library then displays the column headings that I configured, but shows no data.
The Help page mentioned above tells me I can do it - but it doesn't tell me HOW to do it.
I cannot see any mechanism that allows me to specify which field is the link.
If I was using SQL queries, then my query would look like this :-
SELECT T0.[ItemCode], T0.[FirmCode], T1.[FirmName] FROM OITM T0 INNER JOIN OMRC T1 ON T0.[FirmCode] = T1.[FirmCode]
where T0 is the parts table (OITM) and T1 is the manufs table (OMRC). The link is "ON T0.[FirmCode] = T1.[FirmCode]".
Anyone got any suggestions ?
