Most of the companies are maintaining some of the transactions in Flat file (Excel Sheet) and they want toload that flat file to SAP BI, there are multiple ways to load Flat file into BW.
BI consultant will maintain the Data flow for that flat file and whenever file will come via an email orany other way, BI person will load it manually on daily basis but this is not the right way to load flatfile.
BI consultant uses any tool to transfer the file from client to Application server and load from therevia process chain. But this is also not a best practice in all the types of operating system speciallyWindows. Because while transferring the file virus will also move and that will create problem inserver so the best way is to transfer it via ABAP Code.
This document will discuss how can load data from file to ABAP table and then we will load the sameto BI object.
User just needs to run a Transaction code and select the corresponding file, he want to load.
Create a table in BW that will store the records structure of that table will same as flat file
