Direct Access to SAP
The InfoZoom Database Wizard now allows you to directly access data in SAP. You can also access some tables via ODBC. This applies to both classic R/3 databases and new S/4 databases. The access restrictions by SAP regarding a record length of no more than 512 byte apply.
Cologne Phonetics – Expanded Soundex Function
In InfoZoom Desktop 2022, we have complemented the known Soundex function with the so-called Cologne phonetics. The Cologne phonetics method is closer to the German language so that umlauts are recognized, for example, achieving even better results for our Soundex function.
Expanded Case Differentiation
The expansion of the case differentiation creates a vast simplification for mapping more complex dependencies. While the result of a specific case could previously only contain one constant value, you can now also select attributes from the table. Previously, the direct reference to an attribute required complex interlinking of functions.

Similar to a split function, the “Make List” function splits text into a list. For instance, it facilitates splitting text at regular expressions and is a strong tool for comparing texts in combination with existing functions.
