uploading flat file data using BAPIs

Hi,

I am trying to load a flat file(located on presentation server) to BW using BAPI (IPAK_CREATE and IPAK_START). The info packages have been created (with immediate load) but when I try to start the load using BAPI_IPAK_START, I get the message "An upload from the client workstation in the background is not possible". I'm not using a background thread, so I'm a little confused where this comes from. If I schedule the package from the BW Administrator, it schedules and uploads with no problems. Does anyone have any idea where I may be going wrong here?

Thanks,

Saurabh Gupta

    Hallo

    When you load a flat file from PC you can do it only on dialog process. If you want to schedule in background then you have to load from AS
