Business Objects repository is composed by encrypted tables which are not readable from sql query tools. In order to query the data, you will have to use "BO Query Builder" tool.
There are 3“tables”:
Contains objects that are often used to build the user desktop, such as favorites folders and reports.
Contains objects that are often used to build the admin desktop and internal system objects, such as servers, connections, users, and user groups.
Contains objects that represent Business Objects Enterprise applications. For example, the InfoView and Desktop Intelligence objects are stored in this table.
