Help on Interface Tool box to download as TAB delimited

Hi,

Using Interface Tool box (PU12), we have created a user-defined interface format with fields from infotype 0001 and a user defined file layout with a structure and the fields from this interface format and generated them.

We have also executed the export program and managed to generate the export file in temse. Now when we are downloading the export file using the interface tool box (PU12) to the local PC choosing the option 'Download from Temse' and specifying the path of the file on the PC as well as the temse object name, the file is downloaded in a text format.

What we actually want is to download the file in 'DAT' or TAB delimited irrespective of whether downloaded to PC or application server.

We would like to know whether the interface tool box provides this feature to download to excel file i.e in 'DAT' format.

Thanks.

Cheers,

Kelvin Dela Rosa

    I have the same requirement... Did you find a solution?

    Or do you know how to insert a tab (tabulation) char between the fields in the layout instead of a simple ";". It seems the layout can only be enhanced with fixed length chars.

    Thank you for your response, it is quite urgent.

      Hi,

      I too have the same question.

      I am trying to Tab delimit the output text file. I created a separate "delimit" field between data fields in the file format. But typing in the Ascii code for horizontal tab in the Content field with Length 1 results in a "?" on the output text file.

      Also, I created a batch job in SM36 to generate the report automatically. But then I have to manually download the file from TemSe. Is there a way to automate the download process?

      Thank you for your timely response.
