Calling BW queries programatically

Hey all,

I have a BW query which i call programatically from ABAP on an R/3 server. What I currently use is a series of Function Modules in the RXX1 function group to return the data in a generic table. This works great until it comes to passing parameters to the query, which i had to accomplish by hacking several standard FM's to suit my purpose. Is anyone aware of a neater/more standard way of making such a call??

TIA,

Rowan

    Hello Rowan,

    please reconsider your approach. Not only are you using SAP internal function modules that can be changed by SAP at any time but you even had to "hack" them as you put it. There's a much easier approach that is much more stable and fully supported by SAP. Please have a look at the OLAP BAPI. You can find documentation about it on the SAP Help Portal for example. In the BW system, you will find the functions in function group RSOB (for example BAPI_MDDATASET_*).

    I don't see any of the items mentioned on the OLTP side. How to call a BW query from the OLTP system or at least retrieve the data from BW to the OLTP side?

    Thanks
