Even if you chose to install the Data Provider for SAP as part of the BizTalk Adapter Pack installation, your Data Provider for SAP is still incomplete until you install a custom RFC in the SAP system. For instructions on how to install the custom RFC, see Installing Custom RFCs for the Data Provider for SAP.

You can use the Data Provider for SAP in the following ways:

  • To write an ADO.NET client to connect to the SAP system. The Data Provider for SAP exposes certain classes that enable you to interface with the provider.

  • To execute a SELECT query on the SAP system. The Data Provider for SAP uses the custom RFC for this feature.

  • To execute an EXEC query on the SAP system.

  • To, in turn, use the Visual Studio DDEX plug-in to surface tables and function modules from the SAP system. The names of the objects discovered from the SAP system are written to a configuration file, SAPDiscoveredObjects.xml.

  • To use the Data Provider for SAP with SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS).

For more information about performing these tasks, see Using the .NET Framework Data Provider for mySAP Business Suite. For more information about the custom RFC, the SAPDiscoveredObjects.xml configuration file, and the limitations associated with the Data Provider for SAP, see the following links.
