SAP BW with LibreOffce Base 4 as a source

Hi all,

I was wondering if with the latest release of Libreoffice anybody has used it to source BW?

I'm setting up a demo system for studying and playing around (mostly breaking things that I can't break on a customer's system) and I thought it could be interesting see if I can connect it to LibreOffice Base as I don't want to spend any money on this system.

Any thoughts, hints, tips, etc...will be welcomed.

Hi

Unless there is a JDBC or ODBC connector available you can't connect the db as a source system. It doesn't look like one exists for LibreOffice. You would have to go the flatfile way.

Thanks Martin! This is helpful. It looks like version 4 has both JDBC and ODBC connectors. Now I need to investigate a bit more about how to connect them to BW.
