I am looking for ideas on how to extract data from SAP ECC. I am an end-user and not from the Technology team. So, I have limit ways to extract data from SAP ECC. I understand there are extractors to extract data from SAP ECC. But as an end-user I do not have rights or the ability to use these extractors.
I developed a process to extract data from SAP ECC either using Transactions SE16 or SE16N. The steps I have developed are; (1) Extract data using SE16 or SE16N and save the data as "Text with Tabs" file (report) in a network folder. (2) Covert the "Text with Tabs" file (report) as pipe delimited text file. (3) Load the pipe delimited file to an SQL database. These approach works well, but I am looking for ways to improve my solution.
I also know that there is a SAP ECC funtion "CBRC_LIB2_CONVERT_ITAB_TO_CSV" that can be used to create a delimited file. Again, since I am an end-user I do not have the rights to develop a ABAP program to create pipe delimited file.
Looking forward to hear your suggestions .... Thank you in advance.
