Scheduled job fails to download to local workstation

Hi all,

We have a custom ABAP report that is scheduled to execute on certain intervals.

This reports extracts HR data and save the file on a spefied path. We are able to extract and save it on the application server under tmp directory. However, when we try to save the file to a networked workstation the job closes successfully with following messge:

Download on Workstation ended with error Unknown error PN 016 I

Please advise if there is any setting required or otherwise.

Kind regards.

    Hi,

    Normally the Z report which excutes in background and extracts data stores the data in a file which can be saved on the application server only. If you execute the job in frontend then you can save the file on local desktop. If executed in background then only u can store on application server.

    Anyhow you can try this...map any drive of the workstation where you want the file to be stored as a network drive on the application server as Z: and then you give this path in the program and try. This might work. For eg map the D: \Test\ drive of your local desktop as Z: on application server and in the proram you give tha path as Z:\Test

    The other way if above option does not work is you can store the files on the application server and after that using some scripts you can copy that file to local work station.

    Thanks & Regards
