Hi Heyakanthan,

Fisrt of all, you <b>can't</b> expect <b>anyone</b> to reply, we are all volunteers. The only ones that you can expect to reply, and the only ones that need to help you with <b>urgent</b> questions are SAP support.

You can find support here: <a href=""></a>

Now you hopefully understand that each question asked here is equally urgent, and will be treated that way...

So, your problem, you have exported a template from a database in what kind of way? Using the copy express and saved it? Used a <i>.SaveFile();</i> function on a PLD document in code? (if yes, which ImportExport mode did you use?)

Take a look at the thread Eddy provided you, or just copy it with the copy express tool directly. It's the easiest way. And, if your s0lution was simple, as you suggested, you wouldn't asked the question, right?

Otherwise, you can use this code to try import it into your database. (You have to create a addon)

<b>Code (C#):</b>

// Create a XML file
XmlDocument oXmlDoc = new XmlDocument();

// Try to add it into SB1
string sXML = oXmlDoc.InnerXml;
SBO_Application.LoadBatchActions(ref sPath);

Hope this helps,
