Appending Contents To the same file while downloading


I am using function module <b>GUI_FILE_SAVE_DIALOG</b> for the popup to come and ask for the file to download.

And i am passing the filename to the F.M <b>GUI_DOWN</b>LOAD to download the details.

In the F.M <b>GUI_FILE_SAVE_DIALOG</b> there is a option called extend which appends the contents to the file if it exists already.

But in my case it is not happening. The new contents get replaced by the old. I have to append the new contents to the file.

How to do it?

Any idea. Or Can u tell me where i'm going wrong.




Hi ,

the extend option in GUI_FILE_SAVE_DIALOG is not for appending to the file but it can be used to give default extension to the file , eg .XLS ,

if u want to append to the file u have an option <b>APPEND</b> in GUI_DOWNLOAD , mark that as X

pls let me know any queries

pls reward points for helpful answers
