      when I follow the steps above and leave the program name blank the function module returns the exception PROGRAM_DOES_NOT_EXIST.

      The ABAP in the FM raises the exception when no entry is found in table D010SINF.

      Please advise.

      Hi Narayana,

      These steps are needed when SAP ECC is source for BODS?

      - Do we need any RFC connections(SM59)

      - Any transport import has to performed at source SAP ECC system as well?

      Awaiting for your inputs and Thanks in advance !!

      Hi Aks,

      in the above example, as data transfer method is shared directory, RFC connection is not required . RFA is among one of the data transfer method, if this is used then RFC connection has to be established at SAP server(SM59) and BODS(management console).

      Hope that helps

      This is a very old blog, completely outdated.

      The necessary program modules should exist by default in your current ECC environment, by now. Check out the SAP Data Services Supplement for SAP guide for details.
