    u can decide where u want to put the file

    if u use other server then u can use ftp

    To place a file in application server from Desktop:

    Go to SXDA_Tools--->

    Select Obj type as DXProject

    Program type as BAPI

    Program as Create

    You get a new pop up window and Put all parameters in that.

    1. Save your file in your local machine.

    2. In XI server, enter the tranaction code "SXDA_TOOLS".

    3. In the input screen, enter:

    i) Object Type "DXPROJECT".

    ii) Program Type "BAPI".

    iii) Program "CREATE".

    4. Press Copy (Ctrl+F5) button.

    5. Now, you will get another screen in which you will see 3 blocks called as "Source", "Target" and "Copy with/without conversion".

    6. In Source block, choose the radio button "Presentation Server" and then take F4 help to select your source file. (file which you have saved on your local machine)

    7. In source block select the radio button "Application Server", check the box "Remote server" and take F4 help to select your application server.

    8. In the same block under "File Type" select "P physical file name" and under "File Name" write the path/directory name which you have mentioned in your communication channel along with the file name.

    Example: suppose file name in your CC is "demo.xml" and directory path is "/abc/testfiles/XML/", then in step 8 write "/abc/testfiles/XML/demo.xml".

    Note: need not to do any thing in 3rd block.

    Hi Well, as long as you XI system can see the local system, it's not a problem, thus be sure to map the destination on your local system to your XI server.

    As to FTP config, search the blog parts, there are plenty of good stuff for you there.

    Kind regards

    You need to keep that file in the FTP location and your File adapter select the option FTP give the details of the FTP...File adapter will connect to the FTP location to retrivce the file.....

    If you keep the file in local system

    is it right or not. ...?

    XI will not pick yup the file as it is not reachable, either you have to do the steps in above relpies but it's not wrong neither rihgt...depends up on the requiremtn of the interface

    hi for a flat file to flat file scenario , no need for ftp and all. u can directly use file protocol for file transfer. but u need to use file content conversion at both sides if u r gonna use txt files... it depends on ur requirement..
