A path is usually more than just a file name, it has information about disk drive and directories.

I do not know what value is in your variable <P=DIR_TEMP> and if this directory exists in your system (obviously not).

It often depends on your database and how the string is written, some need a slash while others need a backslash.

Hello Jurgen,

I am also facing almost similar issue. The below screenshots describe the settings -



When I run the direct input program, I get the below error -

/usr/sap/DEM/SYS/global is the DIR_GLOBAL directory.

I don't know why the LSMW is concatenating the DIR_GLOBAL directory?

Can you help me resolve this issue?
