Can anybody help me??

My problem is :

I want to create and display an XML file once i run my program in background.My display would be in internet explorer.

Note that i could not use GUI_DOWNLOAD, because my execution is in background.I am looking for the one to replace GUI_DOWNLOAD.

I used OPEN DATASET statement, but the file, which is opening is not in XML format. it is displaying only in SAP. I want the display in explorer.

My requirement is urgent...

Hope u will respond.

Hi Buddy...try with class <b>CL_GUI_FRONTEND_SERVICES</b>. Goto SE24 and type the class mentioned above. In this class you can find a method called <b>GUI_DOWNLOAD</b>.

If it is not working try


call transformation (`ID`) source (your internal table) result XML xml_string.

Kindly reward points if you find it useful.
