1. Business Scenario:

In a typical business scenario, users would want to view the Bex report output of the past days. For this, they need to save the past Bex report output. This can be achieved by archiving the Bex reports in AL11 folder and use them when needed. This white paper demonstrates how to archive the Bex report output to AL11 folder with header.

2.    Introduction:

BI reports designed in query designer can be published in various manners for future use. This data can be used for further processing by different SAP and non-SAP systems when required. Standard SAP Function Module  ‘RS_VC_GET_QUERY_VIEW_DATA_FLAT’ is used to get the report output data into internal tables.

To fetch the values of the input variables in the selection screen of the Bex report, is implemented using the class ‘CL_RSR_REQUEST’ and the method ‘VARIABLES_SEND_ABAP_DYNPRO’.

3.    Program:

The input parameters in the selection screen of the report are the Query name and the target file path in AL11, where the output has to be archived.

The query name is the input parameter of the class ‘CL_RSR_REQUEST’. If there are any mandatory input variables in the selection screen of the Bex report, then the method ‘VARIABLES_SEND_ABAP_DYNPRO’ will display the screen to input the values for selection.

The input parameter for the function module ‘RS_VC_GET_QUERY_VIEW_DATA_FLAT’ is the query name. This function module returns the output of the Bex report in tables.
