Calling SAP Function Module in QV

Hi All,

Is it possible to call a SAP function module in QlikView and extract the result of the function module?

What is possible that you write a simple ABAP consuming your function module and throwing an output list. Then using SAP Connector, from within QVW you execute that ABAP report, in SAP, and capture the output in the same QVW.

This should do the job. Would I recommend this process allot? May be not.

it is not possible to call function module with the help of SAP Qlikview Connector but you can extract sap function module with the help of JCO. which is open source for all sap client.

and after calling function module you can save result data in text file and then use that text file in qlikview application.

Hi Rakesh,

This is exactly the same thing that I'm thinking of! But I think that QV's report connector still need more improvement so that it is easier to use...

Sure, I understand your difficulties. But think this way - at least you have option for what you want to do, and you can see direction where QlikTech is going with SAP Connector. I have no doubt this will get better and smoother in next releases. Good luck and if you come up with any brilliant idea, educate us.

Hi!

Please also check Xtract QV on this page (scroll down a bit):

http://www.theobald-software.com/en/products/xtractqv/sapr3access.htm

You may access the output of a function module or BAPI directly from the QlikView script without any trouble and addtional things to do.... Of course you can pass parameters to the function from your script as well....

Regards,

Patrick
