Large file upload

Former Member

Hi all,

Is there a way to upload a large file.

The problem:

1 file with fixed length records (59 bytes wide)

Over 17million lines available (actually a download from an extreme old system), making a total of almost 1Gb.

I have a database table that exactly machtes the record data.

So the question is: How to upload this amount of data. The normal upload functions do not apply because i run out of memory space (system I-MODE too large).

Regards,

Rob.

Hi Rob,

I'm not too sure if this solution will be acceptable in your case, but here's one way that I can think of -

You can FTP this file to the Application Server and then process this file through a simple ABAP program and update the file's data to the desired database table.

Hi Rob,

with open dataset and read dataset, you can apply some logic to limit the number of records read into memory to a number you like and process the data in small packages.
