Read CSV file in report from SAP B1 HANA


A client has a report that currently runs from SAP B1 SQL and pulls in information from a dynamic CSV file (it's changing in content but keeps the same name structure and location). However, they are now upgrading to HANA and I cannot get this report to replicate what it does in the SQL version.

I can create a Crystal Report externally that links via ODBC connection but when importing to SAP B1 HANA I get an error even before the import is complete - "Object Reference is not an instance of an Object". Checking in the report it shows no source despite the fact that the report refers to 3 standard SAP B1 tables.

How can I utilise this report and refer to an external .csv file from within SAP B1 HANA without having to involve development?

Version SAP B1 HANA 9.1 PL11

Crystal Reports 2013 SP5.
