BDC Definition Import Fails

  Asked By: Vanraj    Date: Apr 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2126

I followed the instructions from the MSDN article to create an application definition file using Business Data Catalog Definition Editor.

It throws an error message when importing to SSP. "Application definition import failed. The following error occurred: Entity could not be found using criteria 'name LIKE [BDC].[dbo].[DimProductCategory]'. Error was encountered at or just before Line: '210' and Position: '16'.

What is the Entity it is referring to? All the queries in mentioned in steps seems to execute fine.

It's an XML error  of some sort. It really doesn't try to run any of the queries on import. Look carefully an the ADF or, better yet, generate your own with BDC MetaMan and try again.
