"Open file..." dialog from Application Server (Unix)

Hi all you experts.

I have a simple ABAP program that reads input files from Application Server (Unix), at this moment the users have to enter manually the name of the file(s) in a parameter text field. I would like to add value to this program by helping the user select the file using an "Open file..." dialog or something similar that enable them to chose the file on behalf of writing the complete name (including the path).

Do you have any idea about how to implement it?

Many thanks in advance.

Try function module F4_DXFILENAME_TOPRECURSION or F4_FILENAME_SERVER (for a specific directory) within the at value-request event for the filename.
