Large boring extract from SAP
I've a requirement for a large extract of SAP R/3 Invoices to take place at 3am. This list of Invoices is to be put into a format for the 3rd Party System and then FTP'd.
Now I could do this in R/3 via a ABAP Program without using XI at all. !! No problem but boring !
But I'd like to know of a good and efficient way via XI. Certainly the message mapping would be easier.
Now for the extract in XI the way I thought of is to write an R/3 RFC and call that from XI. RFC could return 1000s of lines - hmmm? is that the only way of doing a large extract of data from XI. What is the recommended way ?
Should I just stick with the normal boring way and do it in R/3 ?
