when you make a BDC to uplode you wont mention file name in your program. The fime name is givven to program during runtime. there is no way you can fine the file name throught ur BDC program.

If you wnat the structure the refere you program internal table and your program logic, this will help you make you new file format.

Thanks & regards

If you have hardcoded the filename in the GUI_UPLOAD or any other data upload FM there is a possibility of getting your file back if it still exists in the given location.

Otherwise you have to see the internal table structure and program logic to rebuild the template file.

This is a flaw.Mean if u use p_file as parameter of filename and do not hardcode , u are always in trouble because BDCs are rarely used.
