Need help in finding file in AL11 using logical file name

Hi, one of my infopackages failed.

To analyze the cause, I checked the source, it was a logical file name.

Then I used FILE transaction to get the physical file name like abc.csv

Now, how do I know which folder of AL11 has this file?

Please do let me know.

Thanks.

    Hi,

    Check the path

    It depends on your system - For ex - HOME Directory.

    /usr/sap/BD2/DVEBMGS10/work

    Better contact Basis Team.

      Hi Shyam,

      When you say you already have obtained the physical file name from Tcode FILE, it means you have the entire path. You just need to look for this path in AL11. You can simply trace your file based on the physical path.

      Let me know if you succeeded in this.

    Hi Shyam,

    You can find the path of the folder in the infopackage extraction tab itself.

      Hi ,

      Goto transaction :AL11 --> double click on the directory path.

      for ex: DIR_HOME --double click on it --> it will display all the files and their paths.

      Regrds,

    Hi,

    FILE->On the left, double-click on the folder "Logical File Name Definition"-> Find your logical file name ->double-click on it.

    If the Physical File name containd variable like <V=P_FILE1>_File.csv, then the 'P_FILE1' would be defined under the folder "Definition of variable".

    If the Logical Path field contains and variable like 'YVAR', then under the folder "Logical File Path Definition" find YVAR, choose it by selecting the row and then doubl-click on the folder "Assignment of Physical Path to Logical Paths", here you will have the physical path of the file in AL11 and it would be like,

    /inputs/BID/FOLDER1/<FILENAME>

    Regards,
