Could you please tel me  why the first 8 lines were removed, till <Soap:Body and also added the line <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> in the beggining .
Becuase there will be lot of  XML files will be coming from the Vendor daily and that should be uploaded in the application server and should update in the SAP tables based on the data in the XML file.
what information i need to give to vendor that do not add the first 8 lines in the XML file and add the line in the beggining <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>   ??????
Is there any other way we can do with out removing the lines?

  • Error while reading excel file from application server into internal table.

    Hi experts,
    My requirement is to read an excel file from application server into internal table.
    Hence I have created an excel file fm_test_excel.xls in desktop and uploaded to app server using CG3Z tcode (as BIN file type).
    Now in my program I have used :
    OPEN DATASET v_filename FOR INPUT IN text mode encoding default.
    DO.
    READ DATASET v_filename INTO wa_tab.
    The statement OPEN DATASET works fine but I get a dump (conversion code page error) at READ DATASET statement.
    Error details:
    A character set conversion is not possible.
    At the conversion of a text from codepage '4110' to codepage '4103':
    - a character was found that cannot be displayed in one of the two
    codepages;
    - or it was detected that this conversion is not supported
    The running ABAP program 'Y_READ_FILE' had to be terminated as the conversion
    would have produced incorrect data.
    The number of characters that could not be displayed (and therefore not
    be converted), is 445. If this number is 0, the second error case, as
    mentioned above, has occurred.
    An exception occurred that is explained in detail below.
    The exception, which is assigned to class 'CX_SY_CONVERSION_CODEPAGE', was not
    caught and
    therefore caused a runtime error.
    The reason for the exception is:
    Characters are always displayed in only a certain codepage. Many
    codepages only define a limited set of characters. If a text from a
    codepage should be converted into another codepage, and if this text
    contains characters that are not defined in one of the two codepages, a
    conversion error occurs.
    Moreover, a conversion error can occur if one of the needed codepages
    '4110' or '4103' is not known to the system.
    If the conversion error occurred at read or write of  screen, the file
    name was '/usr/sap/read_files/fm_test_excel.xls'. (further information about
    the file: "X 549 16896rw-rw----201105170908082011051707480320110517074803")
    Also let me know whether this is the proper way of reading excel file from app server, if not please suggest an alternative .
    Regards,
    Karthik

    Hi,
    Try to use OPEN DATASET v_filename FOR INPUT IN BINARY mode encoding default. instead of OPEN DATASET v_filename FOR INPUT IN text mode encoding default.
    As I think you are uploading the file in BIN format to Application server and trying to open text file.

  • Is there any way to upload Tariff Code (with multiple XML files) from application server?

    Hi All,
    Is there any way to upload Tariff Code (with multiple XML files) from application server?. Its urgent.
    Regards,
    Jatin

    Hi Jatin,
    Yes, of course you can upload multiple files for tariff codes.
    This can be done by the below path:-
    SAP GTS Cockpit(tcode-/sapsll/menu_legal)-->Customs Management-->Classification-->Classification Master Data-->Upload Tariff Code Numbers from XML file(tocde- /SAPSLL/LLNS_UPL101).
    In the above area after browsing and choosing the first file, please select multiple check box to choose more files as well. Then you can further select your application server and upload all those files in one go.
    PS:- Although, we have an option to upload multiple such files but actually we should avoid multiple file uploads due to various reasons. Hence, please take utmost care during such procedure.
    Regards,
    Aman

  • Issue with uploading flat file from App Server

    Hi,
    Im loading a flat file to an ODS.
    When I try to load in from my Local Workstation, it works fine.
    All data is loaded green.
    However, when I try to load the file after i copied it to my App Server, it cannot load.
    The error is get is:
    Error 2 while splitting CSV data: see long text
    Message no. RSDS_ACCESS011
    Diagnosis
    Error 2 occurred while splitting the CSV data string.
    1 = Could not find a closing escape character
    2 = Invalid escape character
    3 = Conversion error
    4 = OTHERS
    The thing is that it worked fine (exact same file no changes) when I loaded from my Desktop.
    Appreciate any help or input.
    Rgds,
    Gary.

    Gary,
    You can load it from the App server. Just check the file name whther you are giving it correctly and also check the readio button from App Server.
    Go to AL11 (Tcode) and cross check whther your file is there. See in which directory your file is there. Mention the same path in the extraction tab in IP.
    Thanks...

  • Function module to read xml files from application server

    Hi experts,
            I need to read  xml files from application server to sap. Is the any siutable function moldule for that?

    Hi Cenosure,
    Donno about FM which will upload data directly to SAP, I think you have to do some mapping for it so that it will suit the SAP format. Again it depends on your requirement..
    Please elaborate more about your requirement.
    Please have a look on below FM
    TEXT_CONVERT_XML_TO_SAP
    Also search on SCN there are many threads on the same topic available.
    http://abapreports.blogspot.com/2008/09/upload-xml-file-from-application-server.html
    This is the link which will give you the Code
    http://www.geocities.com/rmtiwari/Resources/MySolutions/Dev/Codes/Report/Z_RMTIWARI_XML_TO_ABAP_46C.html
    Use this XML file to Upload the same, this Program will work for your XML file also,

  • Reading XML File from application server

    Hi experts,
    My aim is to read a XML file from application server and extract the relevant data from it and process further.
    When I am trying to read a XML file from application server it is reading success fully but the problem is that its not reading the last root structure of XML file why is so happening can any body help me?
    I am using the following code:
    TYPES: BEGIN OF xml_line,
    text(256) type x,
    END OF xml_line.
    DATA: e_file LIKE rlgrap-filename VALUE  'applcatin server path'
    OPEN DATASET e_file FOR INPUT IN BINARY MODE.
    IF sy-subrc EQ 0.
      DO.
        READ DATASET e_file INTO wa_item1-text.
        IF sy-subrc EQ 0.
          APPEND wa_item1 TO gt_item1 .
          CLEAR wa_item1.
        ELSE.
          EXIT.
        ENDIF.
      ENDDO.
    ENDIF.
    CLOSE DATASET e_file.
    after this i am passing this internal table to "cl_ixml" class to extract the data
    but it returning the itab with required value except the last record.
    The stream reading the file it self is i thought in complete thats why it is not converting the all values.
    Please  help me...
    Thanks a ton in advance.

    Hi,
    1 Copy Report BCCIIXMLT1
    2 (you can change the way of filling internal table xml_table if necessary)
    3 you don't need the part between
    *-- render the DOM back into an output stream/internal table
    and
    *-- print the whole DOM tree as a list...
    Comment it out or simply delete it
    4 Rename form print_node to your liking e.g. process_node
    5 In your new form you need three extra variables:
    data: attribs type ref to IF_IXML_NAMED_NODE_MAP,

  • Parsing XML files from application server

    I need to read  an XML file from the application server. This can be done using OPEN DATASET in BINARY MODE and reading into internal table of type binary data.
    But inorder to parse the document using the iXML library, i need to pass the filesize of the XML file that is read into internal table.
    Please let me know how to calculate this filesize ?

    Hi ,
    Check the FM : /SAPDMC/LSM_F4_SERVER_FILE.
    Inside this FM , subroutine below exists.The main program for routine is /SAPDMC/LLSMW_AUX_020F02.
    Call this routine from your program. You will get the length in bytes from the field len of table pt_file.
    data:
      begin of gs_file,
        directory(75) type c,              " name of directory.
                                           " (possibly truncated.)
        name(75)    type c,                " name of entry.

  • Reading XML file from application server and  put into internal table-4.6C

    Dear All,
    Is there any way of reading XML file from application server to SAP? I am using 4.6C. Function module SCMS_STRING_TO_XSTRING function module is not available. Please suggest.
    Thanks and regards,
    Atanu

    Hi Atanu!
    Simply use the XSLT transformation 'ID'.
    FIELD-SYMBOLS <ls_result> TYPE ANY.
    CREATE DATA lref_data TYPE (your_structure).
    ASSIGN lref_data->* TO <ls_result>.
    CALL TRANSFORMATION id
                        SOURCE XML xmlstr
                        RESULT result = <ls_result>.
    "xmlstr" contains your XML file. Just read it into it via standard I/O operations. "<ls_result>" will contain your DDIC formatted content.
    Best regards
    Torsten

    Suppose if i am having <b>5</b> files with above scenario, i have to fetch all those <b>5</b> files at a time and place in my SAP Program.
    All those 5 file's data should come into SAP at a time.
    Can anybody tell me how can we solve above issue.
    If any body has come across same issue please provide me with solution.
    Thanks in advance.
