Hi Rasmi,

In background you can only download it to application server and not on your PC.

If its ok then you can use OPEN DATASET....CLOSE DATASET to do that.

Once its downloaded to Application server you can download that into your PC.

Hope This helps you.

Thanks,

Arun

You can try this, although I haven't tried it personally

hi

GUI_DOWNLOAD supports background download of data , use the mode N as the mode type and than you try to download again.

thanks
