Saving excel file as .csv via OLE program


Hi all,

in my abap OLE program i'd like to save an excel file as .csv file with ";" separator according to the frontend settings. Unfortunately the file is saved with "," separator (and not ";").

Here is the code:


call method of e_newappl 'SAVEAS'


#1 = path

#2 = '23' ....>>

I also tried 6, 22, 24 as #2 parameter values, with the same result. Running the program in differents workstations (all with ";" separator in the general settings) sometimes i get a file with ";" and sometimes with ",".

Is there a way to always get the .csv file with ";"? Or at least to check what separator will be used?

Thanks for replies.
