Oracle & SAP

Could someone indicate me, what kind of ODBC or OLE DB driver is better to extract SAP/R3 Tables from Oracle DB, directly?

Thanks

Re: Oracle & SAP

Federico,

If you go directly thought a ODBC connection you will not be able to read cluster tables and Z fields. You'll have to solve the complexity of the SAP data model, the sap connector would do it for you.

If you use an ODBC you will lose the sap security, if you use the sap connector you will use the sap security model.

I think, if you use an ODBC, probably you need to upgrade the Oracle DB license. Usually, the orcl license distributed by sap is and embedded license and if you want to access directly the db you need a full use license (as long as I know). Please be aware I'm not an expert in orcl licensing.

Finally if you want to access an orcl db I would install the Oracle Client. In this post you will find how to access an Oracle DB.

personally I would recommend using the Qlikview SAP-Connector. If you connect directly to Oracle you have to make sure, that your Oracle-License permits it. From a technical viewpoint the direct access via the native Oracle OLEDB or ODBC should be possible without problems...

Also you get besides the SQL-Connector a bunch of other useful connectors (especially the Extractor Connector).

You require SAP connector to extract data from database of SAP R/3.

Sorry Sunil, but It's mandatory to get the SAP/Connector to extract data? I had understood, that you could extract some data with simple OLE DB or ODBC driver. In fact, QlikTech sell the connector as extra and no mandatory, if I'm not wrong or mistaken?

Can you assure this point?

Thanks

Re: Oracle & SAP

Thanks Ferran, I'll try to access to DB following your appreciate instructions; about the cluster tables I know the problem but now only want to achieve a connection against DB.

Thanks again.
