    Hi,

    <i>when v say v r working on scenario FILE to FILE? which format of file r v usually working on?</i>

    >>>Many a times it will be a Flat file with CSV format,Tab delimited format, fixedlength fields.

    <i>what is the diff b/w flat file and legacy system?</i>

    >>>We can not differeniate like this..

    Flat file may come from any systems, it may be live system or legacy system.

    Legacy system- is something like old, or past one. If you talk about SAP , then older versions of SAP can be called as a legacy system.

    So it may be a file system, or any system which is old version but it doesnot mean it is not in use,

    Regards,

    Moorthy

      >>>Do v have any compulsion that at certain things it has to b structured and unstructured? if so plz let me know when it has to b structured and when it has to b unstructured?

      Defenitely no.... As I said sorce is independent of target in XI. Only you change the setting of adapter to choose your needs and not the other way round...
