Receive ODP data in text/xml rather than binary

Hello.

I am trying to export data (mainly sales territory data) to another system (Qliksense) for analysis. I wanted to do it via a classic webservice but I can't manage to export the territory data that way so I instead opted for ODP.

The data answer generated via ODP is in binary form and can't be interpreted by the distant service. Is there a way to receive the data in text/xml form just like a classic webservice?

Thank you very much.

Dear LIONEL COHEN,

The standard webservice used by BW system to extract data from C4C/BYD is OperationalDataProvisionIn and C4C/BYD will send data only in binary format. BW/BI will later convert it into user understandable language. If QLIK cannot convert it , try extraction using OData. You can refer to the link below which applies for both ByD and C4C:
