How to enable Up- and Download ABAP<-> Google-sheets?


our company will completly change from Microsoft Excel to Google. That means that we will have to change all our ABAP-reports that at the moment enable the user to up- or download an Excel-file to up- or download Google-spreadsheet.

We worked through SAP's "Export of ALV Grid Data to Google Sheets" cookbook and also downloaded the whole coding from GitHub.

As this GitHub-Coding is without documentation in our system I need to know how to handle the replacement of our now used functionmodules i.e. GUI_UPLOAD, GUI_DOWNLOAD and WS_FILENAME_GET, as well as the method METHOD cl_gui_frontend_services=>file_open_dialog? For an up- or download we need to find the Google-paths as well as to grab the data from there or send there...
How do I have to code that?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Kind regards

    Hi Sriram,

    thanks a lot for your help!

    I checked it out, but we implemented the SAP-cookbook

    in which an other GitHub project is named for the download of coding. We downloaded it all, but it is completly lacking documentation. I'm now wondering how we can use this to change all our self-made ABAPs containing GUI_UPLOAD or GUI_DOWNLOAD functions. As I'm not allowed to download more coding from GitHub (to stay closest possible to SAP standard) we're looking forward to change our coding with the already downloaded GitHub coding.

    Any idea how to do that?

    Thank you very much!
