Weigh bridge interfacing

Our clients want to do an weigh bridge interfacing in which the values will be captured by FOXPRO. How can we get these values into SAP?

There are many solutions for this. My recommendation is to install and activate an HTTP server (in your case Internet Information Server, IIS which is part of Windows 2000 and XP). Write a simple ASP script in Visual Basic Script that reads the necessary value from the FOXPRO database via ODBC.

You can call the HTTP request from SAP with function HTTP_GET or HTTP_POST.

For detailed information see under the Netweaver/mySAP sections.
