Command Reference > pmrep Command Reference > GenerateAbapProgramToFile


Generates the ABAP program for a mapping with SAP table as the source and saves the program as a file. The GenerateAbapProgramToFile command generates the ABAP program for a mapping in the PowerCenter repository. The generated program is saved as a file. You can use the GenerateAbapProgramToFile command for mappings that use SAP tables as the source.
The naming convention for the file is mappingname_<version>_<program_mode>.ab4. You must enclose the path and the file name in double quotes. After you generate the ABAP program and save it to a file, use the InstallAbapProgram command to install it on an SAP system.
The GenerateAbapProgramToFile command uses the following syntax:

-s <folder_name>

-m <mapping_name>

[-v <version_number>]

[-l <log_filename>]

-u <user_name>

-x <password>

-c <connect_string>

-t <client>

[-y <language>]

-p <program_mode (file, stream)>

-f <output_file_location>

{-e (enable override)

-o <override_name> }

[-a (authority check)]

[-n (use namespace)]
