    Whenever a transport request get released it generates two files automatically at the OS level,ie at the transport directory normally /usr/sap/trans.These two files are called cofiles & datafiles and it gets generated at /usr/sap/trans/cofiles & /usr/sap/trans/data respectivley.Cofiles are the control files and data is the actual data file.

    You can execute the transports only when you have these datafiles & cofiles available at your tarnsport directory.

    If you want to do the transport in other systems,you have to copy these files to the transport directory of the target system or also you can share the same transport directory across different systems.

      If you can release transports then Basis has already set up STMS for you and you should go into transaction STMS and look in the queues for your QA system and press refresh in there and you should see transports ready to run in... if not see a skilled STMS Basis person. This is not an simple questions to answer here, there is a lot of good information in the online help.

      As for data and cofiles, they are physically created by program R3Trans on export automatically. In the old days it was done manually but there is little need to do this nowadays.
