To be able to extract OLTP DataSources from SAP ERP, you first of all have to activate the relevant DataSources in the SAP OLTP system. After activating the DataSources you can extract data from all active DataSources using the DeltaQ component.

Those steps have to be carried out in the SAP ERP system (OLTP). No SAP BW system is required.

Step-by-step explanation #

Step 1: Transferring the Application Component Hierarchy

Use this function to install and activate the application component hierarchy.

Run transaction RSA9 in the OLTP system (or alternatively SBIW). Go to transaction SBIW, and choose [Business Content DataSources] and [Transfer Application Component Hierarchy]. Alternatively, you may also use transaction RSA5, the procedure is the same.

Confirm the security check (“Do you want the content application Transfer Component Hierarchy?”) with [YES].
If a dialog box appears requesting the user to enter a package, enter a package in the customer’s namespace and choose [Save] or choose [Local object].
