SAP -> FTP -> response back to SAP

Is it possible to have a program from SAP trigger a scenario that will go through XI to an FTP site, pull in a CSV file. The file will need to get pulled back into XI get converted to XML with file content conversion and then loaded into an SAP Ztable.

Thanks

    Hey

    On what basis you want to pull the file from FTP?

    who will define the source directory,source file etc etc?File adapter does not support complete dynamic source directory so there will be constraints in your scenario.

    Thanx

    Hi,

    This kind of scenario is possible with the help of BPM...as here two things are involved that the Program will trigger to send signal to start fetching data from csv file and send back to R/3.

    Thus You could either use any IDOC to send it as starting signal which will start the event in BPM..then you can read the data from FTP server by using Receive step and pass it to either proxy, Asynchronous RFC or as an IDOC to process further on R/3 side.

    Here IDOC will be sending as triggering point and will be async..so no errors or response would be expected..

    Thus indirectly it will involve two scenarios as one to trigger the process and 2nd one to read data from csv file and to pass to R/3 by IDOC, PROXY, RFC etc.

    Thanks
