Preview (SAP BI Source Editor)
SQL Server 2008
Use the Preview dialog box to preview the data that the SAP BI source will extract.
|The Preview option, that is available on the Connection Manager page of the SAP BI Source Editor, actually extracts data. If you have configured SAP NetWeaver BI to extract only data that has changed since the previous extraction, selecting Preview will exclude the previewed data from the next extraction.|
To learn more about the SAP BI source component of the Microsoft Connector for SAP BI, see SAP BI Source.
|The documentation for the Microsoft Connector for SAP BI assumes familiarity with the SAP NetWeaver BI environment. For more information about SAP NetWeaver BI, or for information about how to configure SAP NetWeaver BI objects and processes, see your SAP documentation.|
|Extracting data from SAP NetWeaver BI requires additional SAP licensing. Check with SAP to verify these requirements.|
