      Hi ,

      The flat file is generally located at the front end (GUI) .

      Its up to the integrity of the user to not tamper the file , as at the end of the day any data change made can be caught . Hence it considered no body touches the data .

      If you want to make the file unable to be modified by the enduser , then its better to keep the file at the application server , which wont be accessible my many . But in that case the running of BDC needs to be done in background and the code needs to be changed accordingly.

      I hope you are getting the feel of complexities which will have to carried out . So its better not to tamper the data provided .

      Hope this gives you some insight into your query .

      Reward if found useful .

      Regards,

      SureshP.

      Hi,

      I am not sure of the password thing as it will require some input to be provided by the way of interface .

      Will have to check on this one .

      And yes for accessing the files from the application server , the only way is by the means of OPEN , READ and CLOSE dataset statement .

      Regards,

      SureshP.
