SAP Application Extract



Trying to extract data from SAP Application and for that i am able to successfully create RFC connection but getting below error when trying to import a table from the same server.

Error: Connot import the metadata table <name-KNA1>.

SAP error dynamically importing SAP table: <ERROR: TABLE KNA1 DOES NOT EXIST.>. (BODI-1112339)

Below are the parameters passed, part of Data Store created:

ABAP execution option as "Generate and Execute"

Data Transfer Method as "Shared Directory"

Directory: \\B\opt\ds\ds32dev1\transfer_ABAP

Above directory is what i am using. To resolve this issue, do we need to have tables placed under this directory.

Please provide me some inputs/steps on how to have these tables in SAP BW and also to extract same through SAP Dataservices.

Hi Abdul,

Although you can install the component, I dont think SAP_APPL component is necessary for importing table metadata in BODS. There is a function called Z_AW_RFC_READ_TABLE which is responsible for reading SAP ECC Table data. Can you check if this function is installed by your BASIS team.

Can you see section 2.3 Function Modules in the SAP Supplement Guide

Try to install most of them.
