Hi all,

I am writing a report that needs to open a file on network. Not on application server and not on client: a simple file in a public shared network directory. What should I do?

    As per your previous post, If it is a file not on the application server, it wont work if you are trying to run it in the background. OPEN DATASET is only used to write and create files in the application server.

      thanks for the hint, it's really good ... but do I need to setup an FTP server on sharing machine or is it possible to avoid it?

      (I know it's a senseless question, but in my dream there is a wonderful FM that takes as input a netpath and returns table with file simulating for example ftp )
