APIs to read/redirect spool data

Former Member

I am a newbie as far as the spool topic is concerned and am exploring possibilities of

1)redirecting spool output using ABAP to database tables of my own.

2)Post-process the contents of the spool either after redirecting to own DB tables or directly from the spool(is there a spool API to read/redirect output to somewhere else given the spool request no.?)

3)Create special authorizations on deleting a spool request such that users can be prevented from deleting their own spool requests.

Could anyone please help on one or more of these issues?

Hi Anuradha,

You can look into Function Group SPOX (Spool extended functions) and its documentation to learn about FMs related to spools.
