downloading report to the directory

Hi Friends ,

I just completed a report. The user needs to download the report in the repective directory specified as a .txt file. I have a check box on screen . If the user wants to download the file the checkbox needs to be checked. I was wondering how to go about this ?? I believe that i need to use OPEN DATASET , CLOSE DATA SET . Any suggestions ???

Hi Hari,

I think this should be simple.

Identify how u want to download the data and in what format. Do you want to download in a excel sheet or do you want to downalod the report list directly.

If the user wants to download the report list as it is the best option is to ask him to do it by the std SAP download options on a list.

If they want to download the data in a excel then you can write the code.

OPEN DATASET is only used if you want to write a file on the application server.

If you want to use local PC use GUI_DOWNLOAD.
