    Hi Yaniv,

    I would expect you to be able to see the metadata for a dataset based upon an excel file. Can you upload a couple of screenshots:

    • the data set definition (you can see this by editing the dataset).
    • the resulting empty metadata diagram.

    Thanks,

    Neil

      Hi Yaniv,

      Thanks for your feedback on the forum.

      Could you please outline the steps to reproduce your issue?

      Thanks,

      Neil.

      BIP => Create data set XML/.xls => No meta data

      Per the documentation:

      "There is no metadata available from XML file data sets, therefore grouping and linking are not supported."

      Regards,

      Neil.
