is it as easy as with other ODBC/OLEDB connections ?

Re: SAP Connector manual

Hi Christian

the connection is not hard to maintain, but you have to know advanced understanding of the SAP application you're working with (ERP modules, BI/BW, CRM etc....)

Re: SAP Connector manual

Hi

In order to set up the connector you need 5 minutes in install it on your QlikView desktop.

However, you require some installation done in SAP - for that you will need a SAP-Basis person who will setup the connector in SAP side (Import Change Requests, create a proper User and setup Authorizations )

All of these actions are detailed in the Manual

After that you will be required to exactly understand what you need to extract and how you're gonna extract it. This means knowing SAP... so I guess you will need an SAP guy for that

Thank you Yaniv,

That's perfect. I just have to dig into manual to connect it.

Other part of the job is just as usual

Have a good Week-end

Re: SAP Connector manual

Follow-up question regarding SAP connector.

If you are upgrading SAP connector.

Does the upgrade part goes on both system Qlikview & SAP. or just the QlikView server portion gets updated and SAP portion remains unchanged.

Re: SAP Connector manual

You should always install the Transports that come with the new SAP Connector. I think the Connector exchanges some version stuff with SAP.
