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".
