I need to read few files from a folder in the server and upload the data in the file using a BDC. This process has to happen in the background as I am going to schedule the program. I had used the function module "EPS_GET_DIRECTORY_LISTING" to list the file names, it is working properly but when I schedule the program this function module does not work, the jobs gets finished in 0 secs. I am suspecting that it is not running in back ground. Can any one suggest me the function module which runs in background to read the files or an alternate method.
