On SCN exist a wiki showing how to create a ZIP file (here http://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/ABAP/Zip+any+file+via+ABAP+using+CL_ABAP_ZIP )  and a wiki showing how to ZIP a report output in PDF (here http://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/ABAP/CL_ABAP_ZIP+usage+-+Zipping+ABAP+report+output) but I did not found a guide for opening and using a compressed file.

This little document is just a quick example built from the answer around the SCN (like Want to Unzip a file using CL_ABAP_ZIP | SCN and UNZIP file from ABAP)  to show how to use class CL_ABAP_ZIP to read a zip file and show in ALV the content of zipped file but it can easily adapted to manage any other file type (i.e. an image to be displayed).

Objects Used in the Example



















































Class



Method



Used For



CL_GUI_FRONTED_SERVICES



FILE_OPEN_DIALOG



Chose the input file



CL_GUI_FRONTED_SERVICES



FILE_UPLOAD



Upload the file



CL_ABAP_ZIP



LOAD



Read the zip file in the buffer



CL_ABAP_ZIP



GET



Read compressed file’s content



CL_SALV_TABLE



FACTORY



Create ALV grid



CL_SALV_TABLE



SHOW



Display ALV grid



CL_SALV_TABLE



GET_FUNCTIONS



Retrieve available SALV functions



CL_SALV_FUNCTIONS



SET_ALL



Activate ALV Functions



Functions Used in the Example






















Class



Used For



SCMS_BINARY_TO_XSTRING



Convert Binary stream file into XSTRING



SCMS BINARY_TO_STRING



Convert Binary stream into STRING



SCMS XSTRING_TO_BINARY



Convert XSTRING data in Binary



Flow of the report



  1. 1.      Upload ZIP file

  2. 2.      Load ZIP into buffer

  3. 3.      Read packed file

  4. 4.      Show packed file in ALV

Create a TXT file



And zip it (Attention! Do not use Winzip!)

Run your report



And you got your result
