Crystal report calling SAP Function
Can anyone guide me on the the step by step procedure for creating a crystal report by calling a SAP remote function ?
Henry Banks replied
Are you using the Business Objects << SAP Integration Kit >> ?
What is the SAP source you are reporting from?
To the best of my knowledge, the list below (of integration points are enabled by this Kit) shows the available possibilities:
SAP BW (Infoset, BW Query, BW MDX and ODS)
SAP R3 / mySAP ERP (transparent tables, pool tables, cluster tables, views, ABAP functions and ABAP data clusters)
& Also web portal integration to: SAP Enterprise Portal (SAP's Knowledge Management - Repository Framework Interface, iViews etc)
To Confirm - the workflow in Crystal Reports would be: Expand Create New Connection > use the Open SQL driver, expand "SAP Table, Cluster, or Function."
Specifically, I refer to the downloadable document ( http://help.sap.com/businessobject/product_guides/boexir3/en/xi3_bip_sap_user_en.pdf )
To begin, please see sections << Reporting off ABAP functions >> on page 114 and << Reporting off ABAP data clusters >> on page 121
I hope this helps
