Problem with joining SAS view of SAP table - /BI0/

Hi Team,

             I have been using the SAS Access to R3 interface to connect to SAP tables and successfully registered the required metadata for tables in DI Studio.Though it is fine,when I'm trying to create a join on these SAS views to extract required data, it is failing because internally these physical table names start with "/BI0/XXXXXXXXX" and SAS displays it as "_BI0_XXXXXXXX".I cannot load the entire data into separate tables and then extract as it will eat away my space leading to data duplication.I have tried enabling special characters in physical storage under properties of table,but it was of no use.

Please let me how to use these "/BI0/XXXXXXXXX" tables directly in my join.Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Maddy

Used an alias for that table and it was fine.

If you experiment with the SAS option VALIDVARNAME = ANY and reference the tables  like so: ""/BI0/XXXXXXXXX"n then that might possibly work as well.
