Encryption of notepad file

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hello Gurus,

I need to encrypt a notepad file containing some information. This notepad is the result of an ABAP program.

For encryption we need to run an executable file from MS DOS prompt.

I have to open command prompt and then choose the .EXE file and the notepad file. then press enter. Automatically the notepad content will be encrypted.

Currently this is done manually. I need to automate this process from ABAP program.

Can you give some ideas as to how this can be done in ABAP.

<< Please do not offer points >>

Thanks.

Hi,

there are provisions in sap to execute an external command.

You can serach oin SCN for execute sap external command and you will find lot of details and the steps to be followed.

based on the Presentation/Applications servers the methods are different.
