FTP format issue

Former Member

Hi,

We need to send a text file by FTP from a SAP system to a IBM Host. We are able to send the file but at the host data is illegible. We know that the sender system uses ASCII code (7-bit) and the receiver one uses EBCDIC code (Extended Binary Coded Decimal Interchange Code, 8-bit).

If we send the file by window's ftp client it is correctly transfered.

We need to translate ASCII text to EBCDIC text, or otherwise to configure the SAP connection so as the conversion its made by it self.

Thanks in advance.

Use function module FTP_COMMAND to send command ASCII before the transfer.
