  3. Go to SAC to try creating a new model or refreshing import job in existing model based on the import data connection to BW.
  4. Select End Trace & Collect in the ST12 trace screen, which will take us to the collect trace screen.
  5. Click on the execute or Enter button to collect the trace details. Make sure the check box Delete created ABAP trace files after collection is unchecked if the trace is to be used for future analysis.
  6. Once the trace is collected the trace is ready for analysis. In Trace Analysis pane, select the trace you are concern about and then start analysis.
