Using the Call Open Dialog command (LOAD), you can call the open dialog from a Web application.

The command replaces the relevant data provider with the data provider the user selected in the Open dialog. A data provider can be a query, query view or InfoProvider.

The Open dialog can also display data providers in external systems. An external system is displayed in the Open dialog if the BW Directory Provider property is selected for the system object of the external system in the system landscape.
