There isn't any support in the current version of Qlik Sense to use the SAPConnector "as is". As a workaround you could:

- Activate legacy mode in Qlik Sense Desktop:

https://help.qlik.com/sense/en-US/online/#../Subsystems/WorkingWith/Content/LoadData/DisableStandard... mode

- Copy the script from QlikView 11 (including the "CONNECT TO...." statement) and paste into Qlik Sense Desktop

- Add the full path to the dll you are using in the connect statement:

Original:

CUSTOM CONNECT TO "Provider=QvSAPConnector.dll;.......

Edited with full path:

CUSTOM CONNECT TO "Provider=C:\Program Files\Common Files\QlikTech\Custom Data\QvSAPConnector\QvSAPConnector.dll;....

Support for SAP connectivity is coming.  Also, connectivity to SAP HANA  can be made directly through ODBC today (as they can be in QlikView) , so that at least is available today in Sense.

Hi Sangram,

I have SAP transports already configured for Qlikview. I recently installed the SAP connector for Qliksense.

But it tells me that client 300 doesn't exist.

Do I need to install separate transports for Qliksense?

Hi Chandini,

Did you transport the TR(transport) to quality and production?

Thanks,

Sangram.

Hi,

Update on this topic:

You can use all QlikView SAP Connectors (in fact any QlikView Custom Connector) in your Qlik Sense load scripts. Legacy mode is NOT required.

Please follow this link to find the detailed description:
