BTP, ABAP Edition and use of flat files

Dear community,

Is the usage of flat files/CSV files still supported with BTP, ABAP Edition?

E.g. is it still possible to upload files to a storage reachable by ABAP jobs running in the BTP, use the respective ABAP statements to read and process the files? (And also write to files and make them available to a location outside BTP)

Thank you for your help.

 

Felix

You right that classic function modules as the ones you mentioned are not supported in SAP BTP ABAP Environment.

Instead you would have to use integration scenarios like the following:

I think I can answer my own question: I tried out some ABAP keywords (WRITE, OPEN DATASET ...) and some standard function modules (e.g. KCD_CSV_FILE_TO_INTERN_CONVERT) in Eclipse ADT. They fail with errors sich as "WRITE" is not allowed in the current ABAP language version".

Thus, the answer seems that flat file is not supported in BTP, ABAP.

However, I would be grateful for a more precise answer.
