Hi kailashl,

Do intend to create a tab delimited file through program. or is it that you wish to diretly place the file on the application server.

PS: if you wish to place the file which you have on the application server from presentation you use the tcode CG3Z, you need to give the source file path on the front end and target path on the application.

If you wish to write the file onto the app server using program that you can do using dataset. and for tab delimited u can use CL_ABAP_CHAR_UTILITIES=>HORIZONTAL_TAB.

PS: Award points ONLY if the solution was useful to you.

1. Move the records to be uploaded in internal table

2. open dataset.

3. Concatenate all the fields of a workarea separated by tab. (Declare a conatant for tab in such a way : CONSTANTS: wc_tab type X value '09'

4. transfer workarea to dataset

5. Once all the records are transferred then close dataset.

Reward if useful.
