package size in ABAP program


we have requirement to pull data from OHD via data services to text file.

data services does this by an auto generated abap program which pulls all the data of OHD at one go.

since data volume of OHD is huge can we split the volume like defining package size we do in dtp.

any insight on how to incorporate it in ABAP program would be of immense help.

    Try dividing result output/ records by characteristics in the OHD by applying filters at DTP level.

    An alternate way out could be get all data into table and have custom developed program to load specific number of records by reading the output table in to flat file. Once those many records have been written to file, create new file and move on to writing new set of records.

    Hope that helps.

      DTP cannot be used when data services pulls data from Open Hub destination in SAP BW.

      secondly the auto generated ABAP program by DATA SERVICES stages all the data to an internal table and then process it.

      but it throws dump stating memory exhausted...
