We are new to SAP. We have SAP R/3 4.6C and BW 3.0B. We want to create a Process Chain in BW to call several ABAP programs in R/3 before executing an infopackage in BW. The BW documentation recommends to create a program or an RFC? local in BW to call the R/3 programs, otherwise the Process Chain will not recognize the completion of the R/3 programs. My question is, how do you create an ABAP program or RFC in BW to execute the ABAP programs in R/3. I have a little ABAP experience, so an example would be beneficial.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I do not work in BW but in ABAP Transaction SM59 is where you would set up your RFC connection. Here is a sample piece of code to use the RFC. The code does not work, I just threw something together. d_system would be defined in your RFC.

CALL FUNCTION ‘Z_RUN_PROGRAM_ON_ANOTHER_BOX’
DESTINATION d_system (This is your RFC)
EXPORTING
credat_low = credat-low
credat_high = credat-high
IMPORTING
return = wa_return
TABLES
i_temp = temp.
