You can retrieve data from an SAP application table using the tSAPInfoCubeInput component.

In SAP, an InfoCube is an object that functions both as a data target and an InfoProvider. There are several types of InfoCubes including the Basic InfoCube.
A Basic InfoCube physically stores data, and is filled with data using the SAP Business Warehouse staging.
About this scenario
In this scenario, you extract data from a Basic InfoCube table, the 0FIGL_C10. As such, you need to enable some filtering to focus on various accounting information such as Fiscal Period, Local Currency, Transaction Currency, Company Code, Cost Center, and so forth.
Enabling the filters on the SAP system optimizes the extraction time.
