Hi,

I am new to odata, could you please anyone clarify the below points.

1.We used to call cl_gui_frontend_services=>directory_browse to select a folder but how to achieve this functionality in odata. who is going to handle it front end developers or odata developers. If we can achieve this please mention how to achieve.

2.Can we write BDC code in odata service, will it work?

3. How to download excel file which is uploaded from front end in odata

  1. Your Front End developers must look into the FileUploader control. For the backend look into the many posts regarding odata gateway file upload / media handling.
  2. Yes, as long as the transactiondoesn't use any GUI controls
  3. Check out abap2xlsx

2. Active X controls

3. I don't get what you mean. When you implement 1. you can upload the Excel via the browser and process it with abap2xlsx. abap2xlsx can also read and not only create Excel.

And if you just want to download the content of your OData Service as Excel from your Fiori UI you can activate a flag so that an Excel Download Button becomes visible.
