Use a user-exit to download standard queries

Implement the user-exit to download the results of standard queries (SQ01) to application servers, while being run in a background.

The code to implement the user-exit is as below. First create a project through Xn CMOD say ZSQFILE, then use the enhancement assignment to include SQUE0001 SAP Query: Private data file.

Further implement the user exit EXIT_RSAQEXCE_001 in the component section.

Include ZXQUEU01 can have following code. Please change the <dir_name> to replace with your shared directory (Directory that you should be able to see / configure through Xn AL11).

Activate the user- exit. Now Run SQ01 (Background or foreground) and select 'Private file' (and not File Store) on the selction screen. It will download the results in a file on folder as specified in the code as <dir_name>.

Understand that a parameter can't be provided for file name, it will be downloaded as the description name of the query <.txt>. As it is, it will create a hash separated file -- but separator can be changed as required.

*&  Include           ZXQUEU01                                         *
