Usage of logical name, logical path name, physical name of a file

Hi all,

I have to write to a file on the application server. I had been given the logical name, logical path name and physical name. Suggest how to use these parameters and get the path where to store the file.

Thanks & Regards,

    • Open Dataset

    catch system-exceptions DATASET_CANT_OPEN = 8.

    open dataset UNIX_FILE for output in text mode encoding default.


    • Write to Dataset

    loop at IT_STR into IS_STR.

    catch system-exceptions DATASET_NOT_OPEN = 0 .

    transfer IS_STR-STR to UNIX_FILE.



    if SY-SUBRC eq 0.

    message S138(ZSM) with 'Data Downloaded to Unix File'.


    • Close Dataset

    close dataset UNIX_FILE.
