AL11 Directory - File Save

Hello Gurus,

I have written SAP ABAP program which calls FM 'SAP_TO_CSV_CONVERT'

to convert internal table data to .CSV Format.

I use OPEN and CLOSE Dataset to place the File in AL11.

Filepath/Filename is    '/usr/sap/trans/Credit Limit Interface for UK- File FTP

Old files should not be replaced ,  but each time a new file has to be generated and placed in the folder when program is run

to place file in AL11

Please help me on this.

In your Program, use "Concatenate" Statement and concatenate the File name and current date time.

Concatenate '/usr/sap/trans/Credit_Limit_Interface_for_uk_File_FTP' sy-datum sy-uzeit into GV_file_name.

So the File name will be unique and will not be overwritten.
