I am facing a issue in process chain.

In Process chain ABAP step is added and this PC is scheduled 4 times daily .

If ABAP step successful or failure PC should continue while connecting between ABAP step and infopackage we cannot see Success or Error option for ABAP step.

Reason to do above case is , we have 21 CSV files 7 files are placed in application server it picks and continue the load and remaining files are uploaded manually using customized program and program triggers PC automatically.

Please let me know what approach i should i follow to achieve above issue

There is no success/failure with the ABAP process type. The way to emulate this is to write an ABAP custom formula to do the work, and use it in a decision process type.

Thanks Matthew,

Could you please help me how to do custom ABAP formula and use in Decision process type for my requirement..?

i tied and I found threads but they are not relevant to my query.


Please in future use the comment or reply buttons, not the answer button. You should only use that if you're answering a question.

There are blogs and other articles about creating an ABAP custom formula. When I google create custom formula bw I get many hits. When you know how to create a custom formula, you write your own with the functionality you need.

It will be a formula function with no parameters, that returns whether the task succeeded or failed - and so can be used in the decision process type.

Everything is else is just a matter of programming.
