SAP BPC 10- loading data to BW error for month


When I try to load  below data from flat file to BW  I get error:

Ccode, Account, Cal Month, Year, Product, Customer, Amt in Local Curr, LC

20, REVENUE, 01/2009, 2009, CK2000, C1, 10000, USD

Error: 'Enter period in the format __.YYYY' at conversion exit CONVERSION_EXIT_PERI6_INPUT (field CALMONTH record 1, value JAN2009)

Message no. RSDS012

I tried to replace 01/2009 with many combination like 1/2009 OR 1-2009 OR 2009/01, etc but still I got the same error.

Request you to please help me to resolve this error.

Also, I am following a book to perform above demo. Can you please let me know, is it necessary to upload data via BW.

Instead don't we have any option where we can directly load data from BPC to BW for the above scenario.

Also, if it has then please let me know and though I am not sure if the error will still persist.

System details:


SAP BW 7.3
