Extracting data from SAP can be done in a variety of ways.  Most common methods include the use of a custom built report or program that was created for a specific requirement.  Although this SAP extraction method allows for quick access to data in the SAP system, it does not provide any flexibility to the end user if the requirements change.  An alternative option is to use the in-built tools that SAP provides out of the box (e.g. ABAP query).  These tools are not geared towards the end-user and most require extensive training and additional authorizations before they can be put to good use.

Quadrate's R/3 extraction solution for SAP data provides a simple and easy to use method for performing ad-hoc queries against an SAP system without any programming expertise. Qubed allows the creation of complex data queries across multiple tables and all SAP tables, both standard and custom tables are available to the user. Data can be extracted into end-user friendly formats such as Excel and Access.

Qubed is a powerful SAP reporting application that allows end-users to generate enterprise reports for employees, customers and business partners. Qubed enables developers and end users alike to create, distribute and maintain content-rich SAP reports rapidly and easily.  The extensive report writing functionality allows users to create complex business reports in minutes, and . The report writer enables the creation of calculated columns, subtotals, grouping of data and insertion of graphics. 

Extracting data from SAP can be achieved in 3 simple steps.  During the SAP transaction recording process, the user will step through a transaction and identify which fields are required in the query.  Additional selection criteria can then be added to complete the query creation process.  Finally, a quick click on the Extract Data button will offer the user the choice of extracting their SAP data into Excel or Access.
