SAP Extractors & SAP versions

CAST provides various different extractors for each different version of SAP. The table below summarizes this. Please make sure you use the correct extractor for the version of SAP you are analyzing. The extractors can be found at the root of your CAST installation folder:

All versions

ZCAST_EXTRACTOR_UTIL.txt

Version 5.6 of the SAP Table Extractor uses this file but previous versions do not.

  • To extract SAP version 4.0, please use the extractor marked SAP v. <= 4.5 in the table above.
  • CAST does not support  the extraction of SAP version <4.0
  • With regard to all CAST extractors dedicated to SAP versions <=4.6, they will not create directories corresponding to packages. As a consequence, all extracted files will be generated in the download folder. If two files belonging to different packages have the same name, then the second one will overwrite the first one.

SAP versions

CAST SAP extractors save the version of SAP in heading comment lines of generated files. The following table shows the SAP logic up to version 4.6C:
