Generating File Names

Use

The function modules which generate a file name when IDocs are exchanged using a “file” port are stored here. These function modules are displayed as a list of possible entries (F4) when you create a “file” port. The standard system already contains some examples of such function modules. You can store your own function modules here.

Activities

You maintain the function modules in the ALE customizing transaction SALE ® Communication ® File Name Generation Function Modules (WE55).

The function module must return directory and file as a character string. It can transfer the directory from the port definition (as the standard modules do), but does not have to.
