      Based on my experience on this sandbox system, there is no ECC connectivity and hence I would say ‘No’ is the answer to your question.

          Based on my experience, even if we dont have access code, we get access. And the delay depends on the number of waiting requests. And presently there is delay because i think there are some upgrades being performed to the sandbox environment.

            Thanks Neelesh..I got it now. However, when I was doing my Training with SAP for TZHANA there was a step wherein we log in to data services to find Data Repository and create a Data Store. I dont see that in the Programs list. Is there any step I am missing in here?

              Are you trying this is Cloushare Sandbox provided by SAP? I dont think they have provided DataServies or even ECC options.

              You can import data from Flat Files, create Views and report on Excel or Explorer.

      Hello Joe,

      R.Konijenburg had used FTP in his blog to upload data and his files would be there in FTP server provided by SAP. However, I did never try downloading others data.

      Why do you want to use the same data, he has also provided references and another blog to generate large no. of records. What I mean is, test data can be created/generated in different ways. You may find many details in the Forum for HANA.

      Regards,

      Kumud
