    Hi Tony,

    part of BW is the Crystal Reports Integration and you should be able to find it on service.marketplace.

    For the Crystal Reports Designer you need the SAP Integration Kit installed which then allows you to connect to SAP BW Queries.

    let me know if you need additional help or details
