    Hi

    It all depends on DC20 and DC10

    In DC20

    under <b>Define data carrier type "server, front end"</b>

    you have <b>PC</b> as data carrier with <b>default directory</b> as <b>C:\</b>

    now by selectin the row,

    Identify frontend computers

    just check for <b>default entry</b>

    if not there <b>click on button default entry..</b>

    Now C;\ ll be used

    Also one can map network address for users to have diff locations

    like

    dniranjan1245

    arijit2341

    etc etc

    For frontend computers whose system variable is not maintained, you can make one DEFAULT entry. All frontend computers with the network address DEFAULT are then all automatically allocated to this data carrier type.

    Example:

    Data carrier type: PC

    Network address: DEFAULT

    All frontend computers which have no "hostname" variable defined are assigned the data carrier type "PC".

    Got it...

    Also if u uncheck <b>no rename allowed</b> for doc type in DC10, then you get XXX01,xxx02 for same document...

    • Hi Shiv,

      unfortunatly there is no note or settings to achieve the same behavior in release 46C. I know that the download happens in function module 'GUI_DOWNLOAD'.

      However this seems to be a general change of the functionality in release ERP2005. So the behavior you are facing in release 46C means to be the standard.

      Maybe a solution would be to implement a special folder check with BADI DOCUMENT_FILES01 and method BEFORE_START_APPL. Here you can call the following GUI method:

      'cl_gui_frontend_services=>GET_UPLOAD_DOWNLOAD_PATH'

      Best regards,

      Christoph
