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

    see the docu https://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70ehp1/helpdata/en/8d/3e4ec2462a11d189000000e8323d3a/frameset.htm

    • 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 -

    FILE PATH

    FILE NAME

    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?
