Frame ur directory path by defining a variable and use the DELETE option for data set to delete ur particular file.

Example below:

data:w_outfile(50).

concatenate '/' sy-sysid '/abc/xyz/'

into w_outfile.

concatenate w_outfile 'FileName.txt' into w_outfile.

delete dataset w_outfile.

Hope this will help you!

Hi,

You can make use of DELETE Dataset statement.

But you need to have the relevant authorisation for the same.
