    hi Divyanshu ,

    Earlier i had some problems with 'GUI_UPLOAD' then I used FM 'UPLOAD' for tab-delimited textfile and it worked fine.

    u can use that 'it is obsolete' but simple .

    Hope it helps !

    Regards,

    Hi Divyanshu,

    It may be better to use the class method to future proof your development (which incidentally calls GUI_UPLOAD anyway). Consider the following code:

      data: i_file type standard table of t_file.
      call method cl_gui_frontend_services=>gui_upload
        exporting
          filename                = w_file
          has_field_separator     = 'X'      "Tab-delimited ASCII upload.
        changing
          data_tab                = i_file
        exceptions
          file_open_error         = 1
          file_read_error         = 2
          no_batch                = 3
          gui_refuse_filetransfer = 4
          invalid_type            = 5
          no_authority            = 6
          unknown_error           = 7
          bad_data_format         = 8
          header_not_allowed      = 9
          separator_not_allowed   = 10
          header_too_long         = 11
          unknown_dp_error        = 12
          access_denied           = 13
          dp_out_of_memory        = 14
          disk_full               = 15
          dp_timeout              = 16
          not_supported_by_gui    = 17
          error_no_gui            = 18
          others                  = 19.
      if sy-subrc <> 0.
    *   Error handling
      endif.

    Hope this helps.
