Type localfile

rainer_hbenthal

Hi,

i have some programs which have upload/download functionality. To do this, the PC path is stored in a parameter of type localfile. This type is declared as CHAR 128, which is definitly too short when dealing with UNC paths (like
servername\path1\path2\complicatedname\etc...).

So im looking for an alternative for the type localfile.

One possibility is to take string, with the disadvantage that i have a selection field in every program which i have to translate over and over again for every report.

I can write my own type of course, but is there really no type for variables holding pc paths predefined by SAP?

Hi,

Even the RLGRAP-FILENAME is of length 128..

I think you can use CHAR2000 as data type..

Even I had a problem and I used CHAR2000 its a dataelement of length 2000 characters.

rewards if useful,

parameter : p_file type rlgrap-filename.

rlgrap is the structure you are looking for.

2000 should be really enough, but as i wrote first i want to avoid declaring the translation of the selection field over and over again. But as far as i can see there is no way around that. May be it is possible to copy localfile to my own type, keeping the translations and just changing the length of the field.
