File name in FTP for sequential processing in ascending order

Hi All,

I am planning to use FTP connection between legacy and XI.

If XI wants to read a file from FTP folder, then according to sap help, sequential reading can only be achieved using file name reading in the ascending order. The file names are like XI111, XI112, XI113, XI114 etc etc in which XI111 is the first file placed, XI112 is the second one and so on. Is ascending means reading in this order or something else?

Thanks

Ricky

    hi ricky,

    only wen u have NFS as ur protocol, u have the option of setting the sequence of processing by name or date.

    while in FTP wen u have multiple files picked up by XI, the files get processed in ascending alphabetic order.

    in ur case XI111then XI112 then XI113 then XI114 ......

    regards,

    latika.
