How do I setup or create an InfoSet in SAP?

I have a tool called SAP Downloader that will allow me to download data from SAP directly into Access data bases.  If I want to download more that a simple table, the only other option is to download data in an INFOSET.  In our system, we do not have much data in INFOSETS and our DBA has never created one.

Where can I get data on how to create an INFOSET?

There are three transactions in the SAP query toolset:
SQ01 create query (based on an infoset)
SQ02 create infoset (has to be linked to a usergroup)
SQ03 create usergroup

So you start with SQ03 and make the usergroup, then you can create your infoset with SQ02. An infoset is a set of joined tables, you can define the linked fields and what fields you would like to use in any subsequent query.

In the SAP Menu you find it here:
SAP Menu -> Tools -> ABAP Workbench -> Utilities -> SAP Query

Nice thing is you can make the infoset directly on your productive instance, no transport system hassles here.

Hope this helps,
Bye !

I will give it a try.
You can also consider to use the tool Extract on Demand by Solonde, which can export tables, logical databases (which deliver often quite good results) and BAPIs.
