Automate File Loading

Hi All,

We load couple of files manually everyday and are looking forward to automate the process.

Files are sent in .CSV format from users and we are loading manually through infopackage .

I can select the file form Application serever,but how do i configure so that end users can directly place the file on serever and then the Process chain triggeres automatically?

Thanks

Nayab

    Hi Nayab,

    Create one ABAP report in which you can use standard FM like GUI_UPLOAD to upload the file on application server.

    Use this ABAP report as first process type of process chain and then followed by other process types.

    HI Nayab,

    You can write a program through which the user can upload the file into the application server. In the same program once the File has been uploaded to the application server you can trigger a process chain using the FM ' RSPC_API_CHAIN_START'. This way you can automate the complete process as the user loads the file into the directory.

    Hope it helps.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    Here you just need to place your CSV file into application servers(AL11) by using abap code.

    Once file was placed at AL11 then remaining loading steps can be done thru automatically(by triggering your process chain).

    How to move file from one server to another server(AL11) - please search on Google by using term "Various ways for File Moving from one folder to other on application server".

    Thanks

    Hi,

    For this automation we need to right a small abap code to place the .CSV file in AL11 server in BW And then we can trigger process chain. Or else u can created table in ECC & upload the .CSV file on current date and then create a datasource using the table and created dso , transformation and load the data via proces chain on daily basis.

    Please give points if found suitable
