Does WD4A support Excel upload directly ??

Hi Experts,

I search whole the SDN forums, I know Dynpro ABAP don't support upload Excel format file directly.

( Binary format not tab-separated or XML format ) .

So I issue a SAP support note several days ago. SAP says this is our program issue, not standard issue or bug.

According to SAP's answer, It's seem that it's possible to upload excel files.

Can anyone teach me how to upload excel file directly ?

    Hi Eric,

    not yet....

    but there is work afoot - see [Blog - abap2xlsx - Generate your professional Excel spreadsheet from ABAP|] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken];

    Ivan et al are also looking to build XLSX2ABAP at some time in the future. Until then, there is no way to read data from an Excel document into ABAP.

    I think if/when they do deliver it will change quite a lot of the way that we build user interfaces!

      Hi Thomas,

      sorry, I don't agree your point.

      In our compnay, we have WebSphere Portal / SAP Portal two products .

      In WebSphere Portal platform, Java can upload binary excel files directly .

      The Dynpro Java programmer tell me they also can upload files directly.

      I can't understand why Dynpro ABAP can't ?

      In the web world, it's very strange that portal can't support excel upload.

      Our company spend much money, and end users always always challenge us why they can't upload excel files ?

      If you were me , how do you answer to end user ?

      I know this is not SAP bug or and standard program issue,

      chould you tell me how to tell SAP they should develop the function ?

      PS. sorry for my poor english, I don't use Eng. often.
