GUI_UPLOAD Function Module in 4.6C does not split into lines

Dear All,

I'm about to upload text file into SAP using the FM 'GUI_UPLOAD'.

Previously I've developed a test program to upload the same file in SAP v4.7

and it returns correctly into several lines as expected.

Snippet:

CALL FUNCTION 'GUI_UPLOAD'

EXPORTING

filename = l_filename

filetype = 'ASC'

has_field_separator = ' '

header_length = 0

read_by_line = 'X'

TABLES

data_tab = gt_tabfile

As we can see, the 'read_by_line' parameter is already 'X'. gt_tabfile only consist of 1 string column.

But as I run the same code using the same parameter and file in SAP v4.6C

it returned only 1 line of very long string instead of the correct lines resulted in 4.7.

Is there anything to do with codepage (4.6 is English 1100, I forgot the codepage in 4.7 but i believe it's the same due to language selection is EN). Or anything to do with OSS Note?

Kindly help me to resolve the issue.

Appreciate it very much
