Read SAP Tables Directly

The following sample shows how to use the ReadTable class to select data from the SAP table MAKT and how to process the ADO.NET result table object.

About

This sample reads the material description texts of the SAP table MAKT.

  • Read the columns MATNR (material number) and MAKTX (material text).
  • Add a corresponding WHERE statement SPRAS='EN' to make sure only the English language texts are read (SPRAS is the column that contains the language keys).

Read Table

Table MAKT
using System;
using System.Data;
using ERPConnect;
using ERPConnect.Utils;

// Set your ERPConnect license
LIC.SetLic("xxxx");

// Open the connection to SAP
using var connection = new R3Connection(
    host: "server.acme.org",
    systemNumber: 00,
    userName: "user",
    password: "passwd",
    language: "EN",
    client: "001")
{
    Protocol = ClientProtocol.NWRFC,
};

connection.Open();

var table = new ReadTable(connection)
{
    WhereClause = "SPRAS = 'EN'",
    TableName = "MAKT",
    RowCount = 10
};

// Select columns to read
table.AddField("MATNR");
table.AddField("MAKTX");

// Specify a function module that is used to read the table
table.SetCustomFunctionName("RFC_READ_TABLE");

table.Run();

DataTable result = table.Result;
for (int i = 0; i < result.Rows.Count; i++)
{
    Console.WriteLine($"{result.Rows[i]["MATNR"]} {result.Rows[i]["MAKTX"]}");
}

Console.ReadLine();
