Using R/3 system commands

The R/3 adapter passes any other SAP supported commands and connection parameters to the SAP R/3 system as defined in the RFC DK. These are defined in RfcOpenEx. See your SAP documentation for details.

An example of using an SAP R/3 system command as an optional R/3 adapter command is specifying SAPLOGON_ID=SAP_logon_key to read connect parameters from Saplogon.ini if SAPLogon is installed. After specifying the required connection R/3 adapter commands (for example, -C, -U, -P), you can use SAPLOGON_ID= to specify the SAP_logon_key, which is the name defined in SAPLogon (the one that appears in the menu). Enclose the entire argument in single or double quotes so that the adapter correctly interprets it for your platform (especially if the name contains spaces).

Using this feature, the commands needed to open a connection to a SAP system such as DEST, GWHOST, GWSERV, ASHOST, SYSNR, MSHOST, R3NAME, GROUP, and SNC are not necessary because the RFC library obtains this information from the SAPLOGON data files. This feature provides a potential maintenance benefit for SAPLogon users and is recommended because the connection information exists in only one location (saplogon.ini), as opposed to two (saplogon.ini and Saprfc.ini).
