Hi,

In the exporting parameters pass the value for MASK according to your requirement.

MASK is a normal printout which specifies the files which can be selected.

Structure of MASK: ','<text>','<FILTERGROUP>+'.'

Structure of FILTERGROUP: <filter>';'<filter>*

Example: CALL FUNCTION .. EXPORTING .. MASK = ',.,..' .. generates the file selector mask with the defaults File name: empty, Save as type: .

Regards,

Mrunal

I am declaring like this.

CALL FUNCTION 'KD_GET_FILENAME_ON_F4'

EXPORTING

program_name = syst-repid

dynpro_number = syst-dynnr

  • FIELD_NAME = 'rt'

  • static = 'X'

mask = ',.XLS,*.xls'

CHANGING

file_name = lv_filepath

EXCEPTIONS

mask_too_long = 1

OTHERS = 2.

The problem is :

Its getting downloaded into a non type format.

if i debug the function module i got to know that TMP_FILE_NAME is not getting appended with the filetype(.xls).

That is the reason i am not able to open the file after it gets downloaded.

So i just manually appended .xls to the TMP_FILE_NAME variable at the end.

But the funtion module should itself append the given file type at the end.

Can you help me with this.

Points will be given.

Hi,,

Use in this way

CALL FUNCTION 'KD_GET_FILENAME_ON_F4' "To populate dialog box for selecting presentation server file

EXPORTING

mask = ',XLS,*.xls,'

CHANGING

file_name = p_fpath.
