To create a report using notpad (.txt files) :

1.open BusinessObjects --> new report

2. select data provider as Others instead of universe,

  • from "Others" drop down list, select "Personal Data Files",
  • File selection box appears, specify the location of your text file,
  • if you have saperated data by tabs in text file select "Tabulation" if by comma then "Comma Saperated" (I dont remember the exact caption for this option) & if space saperated then select "Charectors"(I dont remember the exact caption for this option)
  • if you have specified column names in your text file, check the box "First Row contains Column names"

Run the report.
