Connectivity between crystal reports 2008 and sap bw

Can some one give me the detailed step by step instruction to connect the Crystal reports 2008 to the SAP BW system.

My requirement is to create a report in Crystal using the existing query in BW or any of the data target in the BW system.

    Hi Kumar,

    You can try the below mentioned steps:

    Start a Blank report in CR 2008.

    Create a new Connection.

    Select SAP BW Query/ SAP BW MDX QUERY/ SAP Infosets based on your requirement.

    Give the SAP system credentials and you can see the available BW Queries.

    Select the queries you want to use in the report.

    Just drag and drop the characteristics and key figures into the report and format the report as per your req.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Sanjay

      Hi Kumar,

      Please check whether SAP Business Objects XI SAP Integration 12.0 is installed in your system. If that is installed you will be able to see the BW Query in new connections area. If not install the same and follow the steps mentioned in above post.

      Regards,

    Hi,

    The easiest way to connect to the SAP BW, I would say is through a existing universe which is based on the SAP BW.
