    4. In the Properties panel, on the General tab, you can enter a name and description.
    5. Click the Source tab and configure the source details.
    Source details and advanced source properties appear based on the connection type.
    6. To add a BAPI/RFC mapplet transformation, on the Transformation palette, click Mapplet.
    1. a. On the General tab, enter a name and description for the mapplet.
    2. b. Draw a link to connect the previous transformation to the mapplet transformation.
    3. c. On the Mapplet tab, click Select.
