Dynamic Prompting of PC Files

Greetings;

I have an InfoPackage that loads data from a .CSV file into an InfoCube. Simple, easy, it works.

What I would like is to allow the user to select the CSV file from his/her file file system WITHOUT having to edit the InfoPackage.

I would the user to run a TCode that prompts for the file and that filename is substituted into the InfoPackage.

Am I asking for too much.

Regards

Jim

    this is possible with ABAP coding,

    first write a ABAP program where you can prompt for a file using a text box and collect and assign this file to the infopackage using BAPI_IPAK_CHANGE function module and

    then trigger the infopackage using the function module BAPI_IPAK_START.

    then create a transaction and assign the above report program to it.

    reward if helps.
