    hi,

    You cannot download to the frontend in a background job because the GUI isn't available.

    You will have to use OPEN DATASET stmts and

    put the file on the Application server in the background

    and then use the transaction CG3Y in the foreground to download the file to the pc from the application server.

    regards,

    priya.

    Use 'open dataset', 'transfer' and 'close dataset' instead of gui_download function.

    Hi Narendra

    No you cant use download in a program that needs to be run only in background. If a program is run in background data cannot be downloaded on to the presentation server.

    Thanks.
