For more information about the database system, see Structure linkConcepts of the Database System. For quick access to all documentation and an explanation of the most important terms, use the alphabetical Structure linkGlossary.


Database Analyzer is integrated in the Database Manager GUI and the Lifecycle Management (CCMS) SAP solution. However you can also call Database Analyzer directly from the command line or from Database Manager CLI: Calling the Database Analyzer.

In Microsoft Windows, Database Analyzer uses MDAC (Microsoft Data Access Components). You will need MDAC Version 2.7 or higher.
