SAP BW Connector SAP NetWeaver library SAP Support Portal

Great to hear the August '16 updates and the GA of SAP BW Connector.

Step 1 : so we need to install the SAP Netweaver library

 

Power BI is self service and we all know raising a ticket with the IT admins is slow.... So apart from the obvious solution to ask the SAP administrator I trying to get it directly.

Can someone post here the url of where we find the required SAP Netweaver library in the SAP Support Portal.

Both 32-bit and 64-bit please......

Hi @DavidMoss,

 

In your scenario, you can get SAP Netweaver library from the SAP Support Portal. Then you can take a look at this article: Microsoft Power BI and SAP BW Data Warehouse Connectivity step by step.  You can also take a look at this thread about finding SAP Netweaver library: https://scn.sap.com/thread/950318.  In my opinion, the best way is to get help from the SAP administrator.

Re: SAP BW Connector SAP NetWeaver library SAP Support Portal

Dear David,

 

The "Netweaver RFC Library Files" are available on SAP Support Portal. It can be easily downloaded and extracted.

 

Please note below points,

 

1-SAP GUI 64-bit is as normally not available. If yes in your organization, you install it and test it the issues will be resolved.

or,

2-Please install 32-bit SAP GUI and download and extract 64 bit Netweaver RFC file to system 32 folder. The issue will resolved.

or,

you send me en email. I will share the .zip file with you.

 

Thanks,

Saagar Kinja

Re: SAP BW Connector SAP NetWeaver library SAP Support Portal

Hi Team ,

 

I could connect Power BI to BW/4 HANA  but unable to preview the data .

It runs showing " Preview is evaluating" for almost 30 mins and then gives a dump " Datasource.Error: SAP Business Warehouse : Error occured when starting the parser: timeout duing allocate / CPIC-CALL: 'ThSAPCMRCV' "

I am using Windows 10 (64 bit) , SAP GUI 740 ( 32 bit) ,Power BI (PBIDESKTOP 2.44.4675.422 32-bit ) , NWRFC_42-20004568 files 32 bit .

 

 

Regards,

Rajib
