Hi Divya,

UPload :  uploading file from presentation sever to internal table with use of dialog is possible in upload function & here file name & file type are asked at run time with prompt.

Ws_Upload : uploading file from presentation server to internal table without user dialog is possible in WS_Upload function & here file name & file type at begining is a must.

Hi Divya.

Let me suggest,

First of all WS_UPLOAD is an obsolete function module.

As GUI_UPLOAD is an improved version and has much more better features.

I would like to suggest a couple of references,

[SDN - Reference for difference between WS_UPLOAD & GUI_UPLOAD|;

[SDN - Reference for differences in functionalities in Upload function modules|;

[SDN - Reference for understanding the difference through sample code |;

Hope that's usefull.

Good Luck & Regards.
