    You won't be able to use any SAPGUI based function modules from Web Dynpro becuase there is no connection to the SAPGUI.

    Why not just use the Web Dynpro FileUpload UI element. Then once the content is in memory on the application server, you can write it to the file system fo the Application Server using the OPEN DATASET TRANSFER TO DATASET and CLOSE DATASET commands.

    Hi Rahki,

    if you search the forum you will find responses to the gui upload issue - the main point is that you are not able to use logic which depends on the GUI framework within Web Dynpro, instead you have to use WD components like the FileUpload UI element.

    It is part of the forum rules to search for answers before posting, please do have a quick search - even searching for "[NOT_SUPPORTED_BY_GUI|]" should direct you to multiple other posts where others have had the same issue.

    Good luck in finding these posts, I hope you solve your issue soon and next time please search before posting.
