SAP BW provides three ways to extract data at the database or file level: DB Connect, flat file transfer, and XML. SAP BW provides flexible capabilities for extracting data directly from RDBMS tables using DB Connect.

Dear capricorn1,
Thanks for your quick answer.
Is DB Connect built in SAP BW or is it an add-on?
Can I use it from outside or did I need the SAP administrator?
Thanks again
