I am working on a requirement of picking a excel (xsl or xlsx) file from shared location in SAP ECC and send it to some other location at target side with out any transformation.
I have read many blogs and could required information for developing .
But still need some more information and so I am posting here . So my doubt is " Do I have to create ESR objects for this " if so why do i need to create. This doubt comes to be becz it is only processing file from one location to other location only then why ESR objects.
If I have to create ESR objects will that be based on Excel file data fields.
Appreciate your valuable inputs.
I agree with Pulak, if you do no transformation then you don't need to create ESR and can use dummy interface names.
But I remember that I had problems using the mail adapter because the receiver couldn't open the file.
To solve this I used Scenario 3 - Mail with Body and Attachments in this blog from Eng Swee.
If your requirement is to read the excel file and copy (I assume no mapping is involved in here) it to a different location, then you don't need to create ESR at all. You can bypass ESR objects by using a dummy interface name and operation mapping name in ID.
But if you require mapping, then you must use valid ESR objects.
