File Handling (Obsolescence).

I was trying out the file handling features in abap.

I tried using the 'ws_upload' and 'ws_download' functions.

But there was a window which popped up and said, "function obsolete". I could use the function though.

My question is,

If 'WS_DOWNLOAD' AND 'WS_UPLOAD' are obsolete then what functions do I use now?

We are using SAP v4.7 in our office.

Thanks,

Sreekar Pande.

    Hello ,

    The function module 'WS_UPLOAD' and 'WS_DOWNLOAD' are obsolete as of verison 4.7.

    Instead make use of the function modules 'GUI_UPLOAD' and 'GUI_DOWNLOAD' .

    Regards,

    Sowmya.

    Hi,

    the function moduls WS_DOWNLOAD AND WS_UPLOAD are replaced by the

    function moduls GUI_DOWNLOAD and GUI_UPLOAD.

    You can also use the methods GUI_DOWNLOAD and GUI_UPLOAD from the class CL_GUI_FRONTENDSERVICES.
