Integrating Profile Generator and BEx Browser

In Chapter 5, we learned that BEx Browser is a workbook organizer. To display query results, we use the BEx Analyzer. With Profile Generator, BEx Browser can truly serve as an information center for organizing all kinds of information resources in one place. The following procedure shows how to access a Web site and run an R/3 transaction from BEx Browser.

Note

To run the R/3 transaction, we need to provide an RFC (Remote Function Call) destination in the Target System field. This RFC destination defines the R/3 system as a trusting system. That is, the R/3 system trusts the BW system, and selected BW users can run certain transactions or programs in the R/3 system without providing passwords.

Step 8. Enter a transaction code, and then click graphics/assigntransactions.gif.
