Pool Table Viewer creates database views that allow access to pooled tables directly from Oracle. SAP stores lookup and reference tables in a format known as pooled tables. These keep the data stored in a COBOL/ABAP record format, and the data is not normally readable from Oracle directly. This viewer can be useful for integration software, where there would not be a requirement to write ABAP interface code to access the SAP data. This works with any SAP R3 system with an Oracle database backend.
