Do we need DSN for Excel at Server side?.

Hi Gurus,

I have a client requirement to create multisource universe : one from DB2 and another from Excel source.

We were able to create local DSN for excel but couldn't able to publish .CNS file to repository?. and I don't see any ODBC drivers under Microsoft middleware drivers in IDT.

Is there any best practices to create a multisource Universes and also on Excel as source?.

Also, Do we need DSN configuration and file to set up at BO Server side?. Please advice.

We are on:

Windows 7 64 bit

SAP BO 4.1 SP3 Patch1

Thanks,

Jothi
