IBM POS with SAP Issue.
I am working at client site, have a peculiar issue please help by providing your suggessions or ideas to solve it.
Here is the Issue : Every time a Transaction is completed at the terminal the data will be written (Appended) to the PTLOGXXX.dat file where XXX resembles the Terminal Number, and once the EOD (End of Day) is run it triggers a DOS (basic) program in the IBM POS Server which converts the .dat files to .txt files and once the conversion happens it triggers the inbound.bat file which sends this PTLOGXXX.txt files to the Unix Server where the information will be spread across to the Oracle Database tables and then the IDOC Conversion happens and IDOC's are sent to the ERP (SAP IS Retail) system.
The issue is that the clients wants to make the system online and make sure that POS Transactions are being sent to SAP system at regular intervals, and secondly the Process of getting the txt files to be converted to IDOCu2019s is taking a lot of time (close to about 2 Hrs) and they wanted to reduce this time.
Appreciate your help.
