    Hi Chandra!

    Looks like you have an own file for each line and label (if there are several labels per line).

    So you should have something like this:

    data filename type string.
    loop at ekko.
    loop at ekpo where ebeln = ekko-ebeln.
    loop at ekpo_label where ebeln = ekko-ebeln
                        and  ebelp = ekpo-ebelp.
    concatenate 'AL' ekko-ebeln ekpo-ebelp ekpo_label-id
                into filename separated by '_'.
    concatenate filename '.pj' into filename.
    * Rest of output definition
