Creating a file on application server that exceeds 10 Million charecters


Hello All,

We have custom IDocs which carry Strings of 1062 characters in each of their segments.

Now the requirement is to create a single string file out of these idocs data.

It is expected that each of these IDocs can go up to having more than 70,000 segments.

So, now when this is concatenated into one single string it can go upto 7 Million charecters.

My questions are:

1. Can we create a text file with so many charecters in a single line or is there any limitation for this ?

2. I have found a datatype CHAR30000, using which i'm currently concatnating around 30 segment data and then writing onto the file. Now once I wrote a single line, how can I set the pointer to End of line ?

3. Is there any limitation in ABAP to create such a long string text file using method mentioned above ?

Thanks for responding back!!
