    Hi

    U've to transfer the file to a path of Application Server and use statament OPEN DATASET/READ DATASET/CLOSE DATASET to read the file.

    U can't run your report in background if you need to read the file from the pc (Presentation Server).

    You cannot upload/download a file to a PC in the background. You need to write the file to the SAP platform, them provide the ability to load this file from the SAP platform to the PC in the foreground.

    seletion screen and background ? sounds rather different.

    you need an even to run the program. instead create another program and use submit by filling the selection screen elements. or you can default the values and remove the selection screen.
