Update Busiiness Cards via external App


I'm looking to be able to update shipping/customer information from an external application into SAP.

The company I work for has the SDK and I am currently going through the Help Center Documentation to get an idea.

Currently one of my apps pulls from the customer information in SAP, but since we are going to SugarCRM I want to be able to display Sugar's Customer information and SAPs information and then if the user wants, they can update SAP's information from Sugars.

Now can the SBObob object allow me to do these types of updates? I'm just looking for the right path so I can better understand this.

    Yes, the DI API will give you access to a Business Partner object that exposes most (if not all) of the properties of the BP in SAP. You can use this to add and modify BPs. As long as your app is written in a development language that can invoke COM objects, then you can certainly use the SDK to do this.

    As you are new to the SDK, here are a few links in the SDN to some useful information:


    Forbidden/Allowed database objects and transactions:

    Forbidden, allowed and recommended database issues

    Kind Regards,

    • Hi,

      The SDK samples are installed as part of the SDK installation. The DLLs are not installed by the SDK (the UI API is part of the client install and the DI API is a separate install). The SDK can be installed from the SBO CDs or from a full installation patch (I think 2005A SP1 Patch 10 was the last full downloadable patch that includes the SDK).

      There are samples and articles for both the UI and DI APIs in the SDN (just return to the SAP Business One homepage in the SDN and you should see various links).

      Kind Regards,
