    You cannot use background execution for importing a file from the presentation server.

    Background execution means basicaly that some work will be done on the server, by the server, without the interaction of a user.

    How could the server import a file in background job, from an application server? From which application server? As there is no connection between the server and a specific applicationn server, in background execution...

      You have to Convrt your excel file to a flat file and need to all the logic for handling the data if you are using Open dataset.

      Same code won't work in open dataset when reading from Application server.
