We have two different systems running on two different machines due to our two different product businesses. Now we need to run an ABAP report on one of the systems, but the results must contain data from both systems. Have this been done, if so, how? What should we do?
Write a function module on one of your instances to get the data. Make sure that it is RFC enabled in the attributes screen. Copy the function module over to the the other instance.
Use SM39 to define your instances to each other as RFC destinations.
Write your report on one instance. Call the function module as normal to get the data for that machine. Then call the function module again, but with the addition DESTINATION dest, where dest is the RFC destination of your other machine. You now have the data from both systems.
