Retrieving data from SAP to Crystal Reports 8.5

How can I retrieve data from SAP to Crystal Reports 8.5?

Crystal Reports provides access to databases created by SAP by using the following DLLs:

P2srfc.dll, P2srfcaq.dll, LibRfc32.dll and Vrfc32.dll

In previous versions of Crystal Reports (e.g. 7.5) I could find all these DLLs and even the setup program for the client under a directory called "SAP" on the installation CD. Also, a subdirectory called "Server" under "SAP" had a transport file R900112.IMG, which needed to be installed on the SAP server via TP or STMS.

The new Crystal Enterprise 8.5 does not come with the DLLs any longer. You need to obtain the "Solution Kit for mySAP.com".

Or, contact your Crystal Decisions account manager to find out how you can get a copy of the solution kit on a CD.
