I was also unsuccessful at importing WLA data into SPA. The export operation seemed to work okay (took about 20 minutes, generated about 400MB of data across 1,273 <date>_<symmid>.dcf.gz files), but I haven't been able to import the data into SPA. I'm running SPA v2.1, SMC v7.2 and SE v7.2 from the same system (Windows Server 2008) and have copied the WLA SMIT-exported files locally to this server in c:\temp\wla\000<symmid>.
When I try importing (command below) I see it adding each of the hourly dcf.gz files, then I receive receive an error after it starts the import.
c:>java -jar c:\temp\wla\smit.jar IMPORT -symmids 000<symmid> -dir c:\temp\wla\000<symmid>

Hi MR R
Have you tried to increase the java memory ?
I had some error when I tried (that I don't recall) but after increasing the Java memory parameters to "-Xms256M -Xmx768M" it worked all the way, BUT no reaction within SPA for the imported data....
I just tried setting the java memory values and receive the same error. The updated command to import data I used was:
c:>java -Xms256M -Xmx768M -jar c:\temp\wla\smit.jar IMPORT -symmids 000<symmid> -dir c:\temp\wla\000<symmid>
The instuctor of the class I attended directed me to the user guide of SPA 1.x. The guide lists using smit.jar as Lars has posted. I was unsuccessful in getting data imported running the pre-SMAS version of SPA. I will be trying to import again here shortly when time is available.
Good luck. If anyone has sucess in getting BTP data imported into SPA/SMAS, please let us know what you did.
