    Look at tool as ADBC - ABAP Database Connectivity to execute SQL statement (OO substitute of native SQL statements), but first you need to actually connect database.

    This part is not related to Abap : For Information on a tool as DB connect, look at document DB Connect Architecture and reference note 323151 - Several DB connections with Native SQL. Not that Basis will be required to install some component to access a database type distinct from current one (An other manufacturer, e.g. access Oracle if SAP running on MS SQL)

    NB: You could also perform some search on UD Connect (uses Application Server J2EE connectivity)

    • TNS info should be copied into conn. info field. (Just press F1 on the field in the new entry dynpro od DBCO)

      Connection name Logical name of the connection

      DBMS ORA

      User name Oracle user

      DB password Password for the Oracle user mentioned above TNS alias

      Permanent Should not normally be set for a secondary connection.

      AFAIK DBACockpit should not be required (but ask your basis too)

      If you define a structure (no actual database table required) with same definition it would be easier to map result of fetch data, but this is not mandatory. Else you have to map field by field in select statement. - Look at EXEC SQL documentation for SELECT and CURSOR / FETCH statements.
