Hi,

I am using FM SAP_CONVERT_TO_XLS_FORMAT to download data from sap to application server. The job was failing.

Can any one tell me a FM that used to download data to excel or text format in background to application server other than using OPen Data Set.

Since if we use open data set it is converting my japan data to some other format even though i have installed japanese language.

is there any other FM that support downloading into text/excel format??

Regards,

Ratna

To write a file in the background you need to use open dataset.....

If you are having problems with Japan characters can you specify the encoding addition to you r open dataset command.
