Data extraction from mySQL

Dear all,

I have to connect BI 7.0 to a mySQL database. Is there a How-To Paper?

Is it correct, that I can NOT use DB Connect like for MSSQL?

Do I have to go for UD Connect? I do not have any JDBC or XI experience, do I need a programmer for this or is it possible to just follow a How-To-Paper which I just havent found yet?

Thanks in advance for any hints.

PS: I found some posts, e.g. the following, but its still not clear to me how to go forward now. Also, there might be some enhancements with 7.0..?..

    You could use DB Connect to link your database.

      Hi Jerome. Thanks for the post. Of course, I have consulted the SAP HELP, but I can only see that MS SQL is supported by DB Connect. Note 400818 names only "mss for SQL Microsoft server" as a valid value for the DBMS type.

      Thanks in advance for any further help.
