      I have a question here. Our Basis personnel downloaded the SAP HANA Net Margin Analysis to implement at our local box for one of our customer demo. When we observe the download content - It holds only the Documentation and Support package( which contains only PAT file).

      How do we get the BI and HANA content for this RDS. Any help on this would be appreciated.

      Note: We are a SAP parter company.

      If you need any support to install this please do contact me at as there are multiple steps to be performed in a specific sequence to get the data into the HANA model.
