In a program
I used a open dataset to read the data from the file.
OPEN DATASET cmp_file FOR INPUT IN TEXT MODE
Then i closed the file.
Again later in the program,
I used a open dataset to transfer the data.
OPEN DATASET cmp_file FOR OUTPUT IN TEXT MODE
But this time I get sy-subrc = 8.
Unable to open the file and subsequent TRANSFER is leading to the runtime error.
Note : I am using a unicode system
I could run the same program well in non-unicode system..
Is it that if a file contains data already
1.I need to delete the data and open it
2.I need to open in APPENDING mode manadatorily...
in case of UNICODE system..
