Hi Ranj,

you can very well convert the file content by using any one of the below transformation ways

1) java mapping

2) graphical mapping

3) XSLT mapping

4) ABAP mapping.

hope this helps.

Please provide your requirement details..

Hi Ranj,

As mentioned by Inaki, if you wanna change your source file and send across modified contents to your target system then u may use FCC. If you can specify your requirement in a little more detail, shall be able to help.

Hi Ranj,

You can convert the file content in a XML using file content conversion ( or Basic File Adapter Content Conversion - Process Integration - SCN Wiki) if your file is structured.

In other case you would need a java mapping in order to modify the file in the operation mapping (interface mapping in XI).

If you want to do a File to File scenario without ESR(IR) objects you can't modify the files if you dont develop a new adapter module to add to file adapter. (Custom Adapter Module Development - SAP PI 7.1 - Netweaver Technology - SCN Wiki)
