HI Raghu,
           Use the function module 'GUI_UPLOAD'.
           In that you have to specify the field_separator value = 'X' in export section.

  • Create a flat file with multiple characters for enclosures

    Hello,
    we use OWB 11g2 (11.2.02).
    Now we try to create a flat file with multiple characters for enclosures. The manual wrote:
    "Enclosures (Left and Right): Some delimited files contain enclosures that denote text strings within a field. If the file contains enclosures, enter an enclosure character in the text box or select one from the list. The list displays commonenclosures. However, you may enter any character. The default for both the left and right enclosure is the double quotation mark ("). You can specify multiple characters and hexadecimal characters as field enclosures."
    But it will not work. The OWB use the first character from the left enclosure definition as left enclosure and the second one as right enclosure !?!
    Did anyone know this behavior? Is there a solution for this problem?
    Thanks and regards

  • Flat File with multiple record types (OWB 10.2.0.2)

    Hi!
    I`m using OWB 10.2.0.2 and I`m trying to load a flat file with multiple record types, using SQL LOADER.
    In the flat file editor in the Record tab, I`ve set the type values and the corresponding record names like this:
    Type Value Record Name
    ======== ===========
    T TRAILER
    0 DETAILS
    1 DETAILS
    2 DETAILS
    When using this flat file in a mapping to load the data in a staging table, the generated code looks like this:
    INTO TABLE TRAILER
    TRUNCATE
    REENABLE DISABLED_CONSTRAINTS
    WHEN (1:1) = 'T'
    INTO TABLE DETAILS
    APPEND
    REENABLE DISABLED_CONSTRAINTS
    WHEN (1:1) = '0,1,2'
    The above clause (WHEN (1:1) = '0,1,2') is wrong as I expect one "INTO TABLE..." clause for each record type.
    Could this be a bug or am I doing something wrong?
    Thanks a lot for your help,
    Yorgos

    We`re using two target tables, one for the trailer record and the other for the details records.
    We are facing this problem from the moment we upgraded from OWB 10.1 to OWB 10.2.0.2, so we think it must be something with the way the sql loader code is generated in the new version.
    As our data sources are mainly flat files coming from mainframes, this is a huge problem for us. We even asked an expert in DW from Oracle to help us on this, but still haven`t found a solution.
    Is there any workaround for this or should we forget sql loader and go with an external tables + custom PL/SQL code solution?
    Your help is greatly appreciated Jean-Pierre.

  • How to handle flat file with variable delimiters in the file sender adapter

    Hi friends,
    I have some flat files in the ftp server and hope to poll them into XI, but before processing in XI, I hope to do some content conversion in the file sender adapter, according to the general solution, I just need to specify the field names, field seperator, end seperator, etc. But the questions is:
    The fileds in the test data may have different amount of delimiters (,), for example:
    ORD01,,,Z4XS,6100001746,,,,,2,1
    OBJ01,,,,,,,,,,4,3     
    Some fileds only have 1 ',' as the delimiter, but some of them have multiple ','.
    How can I handle it in the content conversion?

  • Flat file with chinese characters

    Hi all,
    I am working on a solution to map a file with this structure (not xml):
    //.comment 1
    0~keyh2..hn~
    0~it1it2..itn~key
    0~it1it2..itn~key
    //.comment 2
    0~keyh2..hn~
    0~it1it2..itn~key
    0~it1it2..itn~key
    0~it1it2..itn~key
    This is my conversion setup
    recordser.structure = comment,1,header,1,item,*
    recordset.sequence = variable
    keyFieldName = key
    comment.fieldSeparator = .
    comment.fieldStructure = key.comment
    comment.keyFieldValue = //
    header.fieldSeparator = ~~
    header.beginSeparator = 0~~
    header.endSeparator = ~~
    header.fieldStructure = 0~keyh2..hn~
    header.keyFieldValue = 0
    item.fieldSeparator = ~~
    item.beginSeparator = 0~~
    item.fieldStructure = 0~it1it2..itn~key
    item.keyFieldValue = 1
    The problem now is that this file come from Chinese system and it is provide with chinese letters (looks like 2 bytes per letter). When I provide character encoding as ISO-2022 then adapter shows exception:
    java.io.UnsupportedEncodingException
    when I try to process it without passing any encoding then the exception is:
    more elements in file csv structure than field names specified
    Is there anyone who can help me with these?

    Hi,
    I think it is something wrong with the File content conversion parameters parameters.
    You can avoid comment 1 and comment 2 by using the parameter Document offset.Follow this link for that:
    <a href="http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/2c/181077dd7d6b4ea6a8029b20bf7e55/content.htm">http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/2c/181077dd7d6b4ea6a8029b20bf7e55/content.htm</a>.
    I think you didn't specify the field names in the File Content Conversion parameters.
    Follow these two weblogs for the File Content Conversion parameters:

  • File with various field lengths non - fixed cardinalities problem

    Hallo all,
    we have the following problem.
    we implemented a scenario as sown in this blog
    /people/venkat.donela/blog/2005/06/08/how-to-send-a-flat-file-with-various-field-lengths-and-variable-substructures-to-xi-30
    but there is a problem.
    If the file structure is declared as :
    Header,1,Items,*
    then the adapter does not even read the file from the directory (so I assume that for some reason the file structure is not as expected).
    If on the other had the structured is declared as :
    Header,1,Items,3
    everything works.
    Obviously though, this is not satisfying since we need variable cardinalities.
    Any suggestions and help is appreciated
    Thank you .

    Well, I will write the main tests we tried, in case that the situation could be cleared :
    I have a specific file in a standard directory, called xi_input. The file is edited straight into that directory, so there can't be filename errors etc.
    If the file is left empty :
    Nothing happens . No message of any kind in sxmb_moni/monitoring xml messages .
    If the file contains the following (data is random) , where 'H' is the key for the header and 'I' is the key for the items :
    H     20060403     16     3     316001     kapou     lalla     morellala     20060403     F3     23
    I     277101010     2
    I     277101011     3
    I     277101012     4
    There are to cases :
    if the file structure is declared as :
    Header,1,Items,*
    Then nothing happens .
    If on the other had the structured is declared as :
    Header,1,Items,3
    everything works .
    I guess there is now a more clear picture of the problem.
    As for whether the file adapter does care about the file contents or not, I think that if the Message Protocol is "Message Content Conversion", then it does check the structure.

  • SSIS project - read multiple flat files with different formats

    hi all,
    i need to import multiple flat files with different formats into different tables of the sql server database and not able to figure out the best way out in ssis to do so...
    please advise the possible methods in ssis to do so and if possible the process which can be dynamic as file names or columns might change in future.

    Hi AK1987,
    To import flat files with dynamic columns, we can use Script Task inside a Foreach Loop Container to parse the first row of the flat file to get the columns names and save them into a .NET variable, then, we can create “Create Table” script based on this
    variable, and then store the script into a SSIS package variable. After that, we create a staging table based on the package variable, load the flat file data to the staging table. Eventually, we load data from the staging table to the destination table. For
    the detail steps, please walk through the following blog:

  • SSIS - Import Multiple flat files with different metadata

    Hi ,
    I have set of flat files with different metadata structure, I would like to load them into staging tables. 
    1. ) Can we load the flatfiles into the staging tables with out having multiple data flow task.
    2.) If possible , can we programmatically select the staging table based on the metadata of the flatfile and load them.
    Please advise.
    Thanks
    Thiya

    Nope in SSIS a data flow task needs to have a fixed metadata. So if your file metadata varies then best option would be use OPENROWSET syntax to pull the data and populate into your staging table. You may also use 
    SELECT .. INTO StagingTable ... FROM OPENROWSET (...)
    syntax to create staging table at runtime based on the file metadata
    http://sqlmate.wordpress.com/2012/08/09/use-your-text-csv-files-in-your-queries-via-openrowset/
    If you want to do this in SSIS you need to create data flow dynamically using script task and build the metadata

    kindly help for this
     

    Hi Karthick,
    As Arthur said, if you don't want to hard code the data flow, you need to read XML from the SQL Server table and use Script Task to implement the dynamic columns mapping. To read XML from a SQL table, you can refer to:
    http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2009/02/13/sql-server-simple-example-of-reading-xml-file-using-t-sql/ 
    In the Script Task, we need to parse the first row of the flat file to get the columns information and save that to a .NET variable. Then, the variable will be used to create the query that will be used to create SQL table. For more information, please see:

  • LSMW program to upload the sales order with multiple line items.

    Dear SD and PP Gurus,
    I am new to creating LSMW Program.
    I want to create a LSMW program to upload the sales order with multiple line items. I have read on SDN that it can be done on two phases. First Create Header Data than line items. IS IT TRUE??, Or
    Is there any procedure by which we can load the sales orders with multiple line items in a single run (part).
    I want to use Batch process, not a BAPI or IDOC procedure.
    I have created a program with
    object 0090
    Method 0000
    Program Name RVINVB10
    Program Type D
    Source Structure 1 - For Header and Source Structure 2  for Line Items.
    Mapped Field INDET (With Fix Value 1), ORDERTYPE, SALESORG, DISTCHANNEL, DIVISION, CUSTOMER, PONUMBER , DELVDATE, PRCGDATE, PMTTERM
    INCOT1 INCOT2 with Source Structure - 1 and
    Field INDENT (With Fix Value 2),  ITEMNO, MATCODE, MATQTY, SUOM, PLANT, BATCH, AMOUNT with Structure-2
    than maintained Structure relation ship, field Mapping, Specified Files, Assigned files, Read Data and other process,
    At final stage (Start Direct Input program RVINVB10) it is giving a message - Table name not allowed.
    Please tell me where I am wrong.
    Thanks in advance.

    Dear SD Gurus n Experts,
    I have solved the above problem. But there is another problem appearing regarding the date format. Now system generating a message: Date . . is not valid.
    While I am using Date: YYYYMMDD format in flat file, which is SAP's Standard Format.
    In SDN Link: LSMW upload Sales Order using VA01/VA02     I have found that there are some date fields which are mandatory to filled. Here I have mapped
    VDATU - Requested delivery date,  BSTDK - Customer purchase order date,  PRSDT - Date for pricing and exchange rate,  BSTDK_E - Ship-to party's PO date, FKDAT - Billing Date, KORDT - Delivery Date,
    and PRGRS - Date type is Constant = D
    Can any one tell me, where is the priblem.
    With thanks,

    kindly help me on this issue.
    Thanks and regards,
    M.S.Amirtharajvijay.

    Hi Amirthraj,
    If the flat file is static (if the content within it is same for all) then use the offset concept. First get the contents of the flat file into an internal table and later find the field that has to be in final internal table within the line, calculate the offset for the line and get the value into an workarea. Finally modify/append the work area into an internal table. Also wait for other experts answers for any other hassle free way to achieve the requirement.
    With Regards,

  • Flat File Destination Multiple Delimiters

    Hi Guys,
    This might been an easy one for you. I need to find out if the data from a table can be loaded into a text file with multiple delimiters or not using SSIS? For example, if I have 2 columns of data from a table,
    ID Name
    100 Mark
    I need to load this into a flat file and the output should be like this
    100,@Mark
    So basically, I need to have 2 delimiters in the flat file destination namely "," and "@". How can this be done.
    Thanks in advance.

    Can't you just fill in two delimiters in the Column Delimiter field of the Flat File Connection Manager (never tried it)?
    Alternatives:
    -In the source query add a @ to the second column: select column1,
    '@' + column2 as column2 from yourTable
    -Add a Derived Column with an expression that adds a @ in front of column2: "@" + [column2]
