GL Posting ALE IDOC - To be send as File

Former Member

It is possible to send GL Posting from SAP HR system to another system as a file.

Option is that I am looking through Standard ALE whether we can create a GL Posting document file which will be transferred thru FTP file to client system.

Question ALE IDoc provide that option to create a file based GL Posting file.?

Hi deepan,

If you are posting the document through IDOC then you can convert the IDOC into a file and send the same to the other system.

You can use the transaction 'IDOC' to get the IDOC data in a file of the desired format.

Let me know if I understood your problem or not.

In simple terms, ALE uses IDoc for carry data from one SAP system to another. If you just need a file (not in IDOC format), I would suggest you to check if there are standard reports that give you that data and download them.

If not, you could write your custom program to generate and download the required data and download (on PC or app server).
