Use the Select button to display the "Choose user or table/view dialog", where you select a table within the current database.
Use the drop down list to select the business area that you want to map to the external summary table.
Use the field to map EUL items (for the current business area) to corresponding database columns in the external summary table displayed in the Mapped Items field.
Map items in one of the following ways:
Drag and drop
Drag an item from the Available items field into the corresponding database column in the Mapped items field.
Drag a folder from the Available items field into the Mapped Items field to map all the columns in the external summary table to End User Layer items in a single operation. Discoverer automatically matches the items of similarly named database columns in the external summary table. Repeat this procedure for multiple folders if the external summary table maps to items in more than one folder in the EUL.
Select a database column in the Mapped Items field and a corresponding item in the Available items field and click the include button (right arrow) and Discoverer matches both in the Mapped Items field.
Select an database column in the Mapped Items field and then double click the corresponding item in the Available items field.
