Issue in trasfering records to file using Transfer (in Binary mode)

Hi all,

I am using a trasfer statement to write the contents of internal table onto a file in Apllication server.

My code is

   LOOP AT i_file.
       TRANSFER  i_file-rec_data TO i_pf_names-v_name.

I am opening the file in binary mode.Its not writing the second record totally. Each of my record is 432 characters in length. Irrespective of no. of records in my internal table its writing only 1 rec completely and half of second record.

I am aware that opening a file in binary mode ignores the line breaks.

So, opening in binary mode should write 1000 characters. Its writing 511 characters and stopping. Its not writing further records though my internal table is having records.

Can you please help.

    If you are viewing the application server file in AL11, you wont be able to view the total length of the file even though it is written. To confirm this use the transaction CG3Y and download the application server to presentation server and check if the whole of the record is written
