Using OpenHub Unix to export to SQL Server


I have SAPBW 3.1(DB2 database) on a Unix machine and I need to export data to a SQL Server database on Windows. There are general issues with accessing SQL Server from a Unix machine (ODBC drivers), but what I would like to know is, does this apply using OpenHub?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

    Open Hub has destinations of a flat file or a DB table ( a table in the SAP BW systems DB). Therefore it is not possible for SAP BW on Unix/DB2 to write directly to a Windows/SQL Server DB.

    Open option you could have would be to have a 3rd party program read the open hub table and copy it to the SQL Server table. This would have to be a program running out side of SAP BW or on a Windows application server connected to your BW system.

    I hope this helps,

      Hi Mike,

      Once again thank you for the reply and I appreciate the assistance.

      Just one final question, do you believe that it would be possible to use ABAP code to copy the tables to a Windows/SQLServer environment?

      Kind Regards,
