File Transfer from SAP to External System

Hi Experts,

How can we transfer a file to the external systems.( I.e. to the calling system.). File should be dowloaded to the

external system specified path.


We should download the data through the GUI_Download FM and then send this file directly to the calling system(I.e. Java system or .Net system or any third party system.

How can we know a call is comming from so and so system? and then send this file to external systems path. is there any function module or any other way to do it?.

Help would be appreciated.

    Hi Devi,

    Your questions leave too much room for assumptions, so could you please be a little more specific.

    About the download of a file to 'a system', do you by any chance mean 'server' ? If so, is this server location accesible from your pc (windows explorer)? And are you planning to run your abap in the forground only?

    If the answer to one of these 2 last questions is No, please use the 'open dataset' statement for storage on 'a server'.

    Also make sure the location where you would like to store the data is accessible from within SAP (check tcode FILE or AL11 or ask the Basis guys to set up a connection).
