File data formats supported by File Adapter in case source is IDOC

Hi All,

Can anybody tell me what are the different file data formats supported by File adapter?

For eg: .CSV, Tab dilimited, Excel etc.

I have seen all the links from Help.Sap.com about File adapter.

My source adapter is IDOC. IDOC will be having complex structure. Is it possible to convert it in to CSV? Does FCC Supports Complex structure?

I have also seen Note 894815. But does Conversion Agent work in case of IDOC Adapter?

Thanks in adavance.

    File adapter can process all file formats, but for some files you would require modules. For example to process or read the contents of an excel or pdf file you will require an adapter module.

    there is a limitation for FCC. - /people/shabarish.vijayakumar/blog/2007/08/03/file-adapter-receiver--are-we-really-sure-about-the-concepts

    Conversion agent is a good option - it has quite some ability to read and write any type of format.
