Reading files in application server

21 Views

Hi All,

In connection with my yesterday's post of how to read a tab delimited file from

application server, I have this question.

How do we save a file as a tab delimited file in the application server because

yesterday's suggestions don't seem to work because even though I applied the logic

suggested it doesn't work out so I feel there is a problem in the files being saved in

application server. I am attaching yesterday's discussion. Please suggest.

Regards,

Karthik

Reading file from Application Server

Posted: Aug 23, 2005 12:41 PM Reply E-mail this post

Hi All,

I have an old program which is throwing up an issue.

I am succesfully uploading a tab-delimited(DAT) text file from a local server using the

'UPLOAD' Function Module. But when I try to use the same file saved in the application

server and upload it using 'OPEN DATASET P_FILE FOR INPUT IN TEXT MODE' statement and

next 'READ DATASET P_FILE INTO INT_TABLE', it is not considering the tab-delimiters and

reading the adjacent fields into a single field using # as the separator

For example in the text file I have 3 fields

Field1 Field2 Field3

AAAAA BBBBB CCCCC

After the READ DATASET statement the work area is being populated as <wa>-field1 =

AAAAA#BB

<wa>-field2 = BBB#CCC

<wa>-field3 = CC

The field length's of the 3 fields are 8, 7 & 7 respectively.

Could you suggest me a solution such that the fields are populated as below

<wa>-field1 = AAAAA

<wa>-field2 = BBBBB

<wa>-field3 = CCCCC

Thanks,

Karthik

may be you have to split it manually

split <text> at CL_ABAP_CHAR_UTILITIES=>HORIZONTAL_TAB into filed1 field2 field3 etc.

Hi,

Open the dataset in IN BINARY MODE ( not in text mode ) and use SPLIT stmt at tab.

Hi,

I will try this, but could you please explain what is the significance of '09'. I have

not understood that.

Thanks,

Karthik

Hi,

data: hor_tab type x value '09'.

is the hex value of horizontal tab. When you work in binary mode you can read this

values and split your fields at it.
