ABAP for InfoPackage settings

Former Member

This is not a typical BW requirement. So I could use some expert help here.

I have to take the input field selection values and also the file path/name from a custom screen and use an ABAP program in a process chain to paste these values in the InfoPackage and execute it.

Any inputs how I can do this?

Write a report program with the selection-screen (file, selection values etc). Once you have this info in your ABAP, you can use BAPI function BAPI_IPAK_CHANGE and BAPI_IPAK_START to change and schedule the infopackage.

You don't need to schedule it if you specify the schedule parameters in the change infopack call (it will be scheduled in the change call itself then).

For more documentations, go to txn BAPI and look for documentation for these BAPIs under BIWWarehouse managementInfoPackage.

This report program can then be added to your process chain.
