I try to report off the SAP system using crystal reports without installation of the BOE server. But with very few knowledge of the SAP system, I am not clear of how and what to do. The following is what I have done:
1. From the client machine, I open the crystal report 2008
2. click "SAP" button and then click "Create New Report from a Query"
3. Select the system and enter the login user name/ password information
4. A dialog "Select Query for your Crystal Report" displayed.
But under "Favorites", no entry found
Under "Roles", no entry found
Under infoAreas, there is a "Technical content" on top level and "Exchange Rate Type" is under it. I select this exchange rate type in the report, but it is an empty table.
If I use the same user name/ password to log on the SAPGUI, I am able to see lots of data.
Does anyone know what are the appropriate configuration steps to make the tables/views in the SAP system visible in the crystal reports? Could you please give me the details? Any help is appreciated.
