Trigger external scripts from FDM (.cmd and .adl)

625044Apr 25 2009
Hi All,

I have to simular issues.
1. i would like to trigger a metadata load MAXL script from FDM to Essbase. I have heared i need to trigger a .cmd file for this but has anyone an example script how to trigger a .cmd file (or a MAXL script directly) from FDM?

2. i need to extract data from a AS400. I have already .adl scripts to do so but i would like to trigger these scripts (and use the result) from an import script in FDM.

Has anyone a clue?

Thanks in advance,
