Extraction of InfoCube data from BW system to non SAP system

Hello All,

Is the extraction of InfoCube data from BW system to non SAP system availbale only for BW 3.5 release ? If yes, how can we extract the InfoCube data to a non SAP system with SAP BW 3.1 ?

Hope to get some help.

Best Regards,

Loveline.

    BW works as an Open Hub Platform since 3.0A.

    There are several ways to extract IC data:

    1 - Open Hub -> RSA1 / Tools / Open Hub Service

    2 - TCODE RSCRM_BAPI: noy officialy supported!

    3 - LISTCUBE ... not so elegant but quite good

    The first one is the most emphasized and reccomended way: take a look in http://service.sap.com/bw -> InfoIndex there you find very good documention about.

    Hope it helps

    Hi Gianfranco,

    Thanks for replying.

    Yes I know that open hub service is the appropriate technique to extract data from the infocube.

    But if we look at SAP Netweaver documentation : Prior to SAP NetWeaver '04(since the SAP BW release I am working is 3.1); We find that we have the option to extract to a DB table or flat file.

    Now if we look at SAP Netweaver documentation : SAP NetWeaver '04; In addition to the above we have the option to extract to a non SAP system.

    My requirment is to extract data from InfoCube to a non SAP system. The SAP BW release I am using is 3.1

    Best Regards,

    Loveline.

    • Hi,

      SAP NetWeaver '04 (SAP BW 3.5) has the same Open hub destinations as prior releases. One addition is enhanced links to 3rd party systems (i.e. schedulers/ETL tools).

      One addition extraction option in SAP BW 3.5 is output from a query/query view as an XML list. This does not handle deltas like open hub does though.

      I hope this helps,

      Mike.
