convert the flat file to xml format.

hi,

I need to write a interface program in the R/3 to pull the flat file data from the unix application server and do some manipulation and place back into the unix application server in XML format, From the unix box XML file taken by the XI server.

pls give me some idea to convert the flat file to XML format, through any function module or any other logic is there...

with regards,

Thambee.

    Hi Thambee !

    To get an XML file as output, you just need to use a File/FTP receiver adapter without File Content Conversion. Because internally XI uses XML as format for data exchange, by using this kind of adapter you will be able to output the data exactly as used internally by XI.

    ps: please award points if helpful.

      hi,

      I hve to work on R/3 side only and I hve to place the xml file in unix server, from there XI consultant will pull the xml file as outbound interface (sender parameters for mapping)....

      Here the Issue how to convert the flat file to XML format in R/3 side(any abap function module) not in XI side(like flat file to xml conversion scenarios)

      with regards,

    Is R3 involved in the scenario? If not you might want to reconsider the ncessity of PI. For manipulating something on XML file and produce another XML does not really require PI unless decided to use it..

      Hi Thambee,

      When ever we can convert the flat file to XML file, We need to use the Adapter in XI side.XI Consultant is take care of that one.
