Save files on server using FTP

Hi SAP Gurus,

Does anyone know how I could save some output files on an ftp server from my sap program which will operate in background.

At first I had made the program using GUI Functions but now the client talls me it has to be executed in background. As of now I have only been able to save to the applications server and move it from there using transaction CG3Y.

The client tells me that I can do it using FTP but I have no idea how to implement it, him neither. I know it could be done using Xi but he says it will be too slow for files of around 100-150 MB.

Any solutions anyone??

      First use HTTP_SCRAMBLE & then output of this as input to FTP_CONNECT FM. This will establish your connection with the FTP server. Then use FTP_COMMAND where you will pass the FTP command....put <source file> <destincation file>. And finally use FTP_DISCONNECT to disconnect.

      Hope this helps.
