Is anyone using BPC 10 NW with SQL as the BW database?

We want to use SQL, but also want the functionality that comes with the NW version. My understanding is that you can install EPM 10 NW, then when setting up BW select SQL as the database type. That is where my understanding ends. Do you use SAPGUI to view the tables or SQL? Do you use ABAP and process chains or stored procedures and SSIS or both?

Are there any other experiences to share?

Thanks Experts!

    Hi Jonathan,

    Yes, we are using MS SQL as a DB for BPC NW. We are using this DB also for SAP ERP...

    And yes: we are using SAPGUI to view the tables, using ABAP and process chains

    Hi Jonathan,

    Yes, you can use SQL Server as the DB of BW. But as i know, you cannot use store procedures and SSIS. The process chains mentioned by Vadim should be the BW concept process chain. Not Microsoft SSIS package.

    Best regards,
