Possible to move flat files with changing filenames in a process chain ?

Hi all

I have a question concerning the "File operation (Move and copy)" process available in the process chain. I can't find any kind of documentation on this step in help.sap.com so if you know a link please post it.

I am currently facing the problem that I have a flat file provided every day which contains the date in the file name. I need to build a process chain that imports the flat file and moves it to another location after completing the load procedure.

I have seen the process "File operation (Move and copy)", however I can't figure out if it is possible to handle flat files with non similar names.....

I also can't find documentation. I currently see that an InfoPackage can be used for providing the source file, however I do not understand the relation between the InfoPackage and the process step.

Does anybody know a little more on this process step or at least is able to provide me with a link to that topic?

Thanks for any help,

Regards,

Minima

    Hi,

    I think this process type Move and Copy is a custom created in your Project. I have never heard of this process type.

      it's definitely customer developed... we have similar process types here

      basically what you do is define some "move" logic in an ABAP program...

    How can I see if it is custom developed?

    It appears among the other regular processes in

    RSPC -> Process Types -> Other BW Processes -> File Operation (Move and Copy)

    I am actually quiet sure that it is not custom developed, but please let me know how to verify this.

      Ok, I figured that the process step was custom developed. Now I would love to have a look at the coding used in that FB.

      Where can I get access to the source?
