Hi Thomas,

the file access will be done by SAP server, so the user is SAPADM (I think). This is a question you may discuss with your BASIS people. A hint may be that the same rights are needed as for releasing transport requests (because then transport data are written to a file).

The pipe idea is OK but you can't fool the operating system about the user...
