R/3 LIS and BW

Hi All,

We are upgrading our SAP R/3 3.1I to 4.6C. For the reporting part, we want to use BW (release 3.1).

Can you advice:

1. Does BW(especially in Logistics area) cover the LIS functions in R/3?

2. What need to install in R/3 3.1, so that BW3.1 can extract data from there because now I couldn´t see any business content or extraction structure in R/3 3.1.

Thanks for your answer.

Jessica

    You can extract data from existing LIS structures or use the business content data sources to do the extraction. With the BW reporting you should be able to solve most of the requirements you had to your LIS plus you have the chance to do all those things you always wanted to do like integrate other data sources, combine it with CO-PA data etc.

    In R/3 3.1 you need to install the Plug-In. I don't know what Plug-In is available for 3.1 but there should be one available. Then you can customize extraction via SBIW.

    Best regards

    Hi Jessica,

    1. Yes BW covers reporting on LIS in R/3.

    2. You need to install a Plug-in in R/3 in order to get BW functionalities (extraction) in R/3. Please find detailed information about releases and compatibilities in the following link:
