ABAP query processing in bgrnd and saving file to prsntn/application server


Hello Gurus

I have question regarding to ABAP query execution. Currently I try to find out if ABAP query can be executed in background and store the result into UNIX directory or in the presentation server(desktop). What I found is that the report need to be executed using option Private File and the data by default will be stored at directory /sap/outbound/.

However what I found next is that the maximum fields should be 64 fields. If the query result has more than 64 fields, the error will occurs WRITE_TO_OFFSET_TOOLARGE.

My question is:

1. Can we set the directory in unix folder to someplace else than /sap/outbound/ ?

2. Can we set in order to have the report stored without limitation 64 fields?

Thanks in advance
