    Hi ,

    GUI_DOWNLOAD function doesn't work in Background mode for that you have use download the file in application server

    The FM GUI_DOWNLAOD will not work in background mode, as it has to download to the local PC, but when run in background it is being run on the APP server and thus loses the link with the Desktop, so it does not know what desktop to download the file to and hits an error which is why the program will dump.

    For background process use this link.
