You can use EXEC SQL to issue SQL to the SQL server. Once you have read the data, you can bring it into SAP using BAPIs, IDOCs or BDC. For Oracle databases, SAP suggest the procedure outline in OSS note 25383 - Database links, synonyms, remote DB.

This is a pretty generic reply...

I am interested in using MS SQL Server, to pass data back to SAP via a WebService that exposes/calls specific rfc/bapi functions.

What does the SQL config look like? How do I pass UserID and PWD? or is there another way.

What specifics/special settings are needed on the SAP webservice side?
