Starting with .NET and SAP

Hi all,

i have VS.NET (want to use VB.NET) installed on my Computer. And i have a connection to SAP 4.6C and 4.7 running here at my company.

Normally i'm working with Abap. Now i want to do some stuff with VB.NET (just to learn .NET and the .NET Connector).

What exactly do i need to install on my Machine to connect to SAP, read tables, change Tables, call BAPI's etc.etc. from VB.NET ?

Where can i download the SAP .NET Connector ? Are there some examples or books around ?

    You can also directly access BAPI's from 4.7 systems as web services without installing additional components - It hink this is easier than using the .Net connector.

      Try transactions SMICM - sorry for the confusion!!! - Internet Connection Manager Monitor. (see the "i" information icon or more details here)

      Activating the services is done in the transaction SICF and again there is an "i" information icon with more help.

      If you need more information, let me know.
