Cannot execute Function Modules on Crystal Reports 2008 against SAP ECC


We are connecting SAP ECC to Crystal Reports 2008. We are able to connect to SAP Tables and create reports but we cannot use / execute Function Modules on Crystal .

We tried to execute simple functions modules on Crystal and then ran the report but the function module does not return any values. We also did a SM50 to check whether we can see any Crystal entries , but we see none. The same FM though executes fine on SAP.

I have followed chapter 14 of SAP Integration Kit 3.1 to create the authorizations ( sorry, we cannot give SAP_ALL as this is a productive environment.) also the transports are fine in \usr\sap\trans\cofiles and data folders..

    in the User Guide for the SAP Integration Kit there are some examples on what kind of output type you can use for the ABAP functions. Is the ABAP function RFC enabled ? Do you see no ABAP Functions at all or are you missing a particular one ?

      I tried the same with a very simple BAPI (BAPI_USER_EXISTENCE_CHECK).

      If we put direct a Record Selection on this BAPI outcome is good and data is shown on Crystal Reports. Now we try to get the username from the database table USR02 and link this one to the given BADI. Then again we get the error messages: 'Failed to retrieve data from the database' and

      'Invalid Argument provided'?

      I am lost and any suggestion in the right direction would be great.

      Thanks in advance!
