Filezilla ! Do you mean that you want your background job send the file to your personal laptop ?

SAP does not allow this because your laptop might be switched off when the job runs.

Why don't you make your program write the file to the SAP backend (ABAP statements OPEN DATASET, TRANSFER and so on), and use manually filezilla from your laptop to retrieve the file from the SAP backend?

Hi,

Please check below points:

1. can you please check with Infra team whether you have authorization to access FTP folder?

2. Also check when in SAP you have scheduled Job in background, Is data getting updated ?

3. You can schedule a Job with SM36 with required Program name and variant

4. Kindly check Job Status with SM37

I hope this will help you...!!

Regards,

Amit
