Work with SAP Business One
SAP Business One Data Model
The driver connects to SAP Business One Service Layer, an OData service, to model entities in relational Tables and Views. The table definitions are dynamically obtained from the SAP Business One Service Layer. Any changes in the metadata, such as added or removed columns or changes in data type, can be loaded by reconnecting.
