XLS from Application server in background mode to internal table

Hi,
I need to transfer the content of an excel file in the application server to an internal table while running my program in background. My file is xls, cant use csv. For dataset bin mode, I need to know how to transfer the data to my internal table, already searched on forum but didnt find answer, at least not for background..
ow, I am using v6 here
about the ALSM_EXCEL_TO_INTERNAL_TABLE, I get the upload_ole error all the time, and with TEXT_CONVERT_XLS_TO_SAP, conversion_failed all the time too...
here is the code, just the load part and data declaration:
REPORT zbeto.
TYPE-POOLS: truxs.
TYPES:
BEGIN OF y_cot,
text1(12) TYPE c,
text2(12) TYPE c,
text3(12) TYPE c,
text4(12) TYPE c,
text5(12) TYPE c,
END OF y_cot.
DATA: it_datatab TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF y_cot,
wa_datatab TYPE y_cot,
it_raw TYPE truxs_t_text_data.
DATA:
v_file TYPE rlgrap-filename,
begin_col TYPE i VALUE '1',
begin_row TYPE i VALUE '2',
end_col TYPE i VALUE '5',
end_row TYPE i VALUE '102',
t_ctmp TYPE y_cot OCCURS 0 WITH HEADER LINE,
t_xls TYPE alsmex_tabline OCCURS 0 WITH HEADER LINE.
START-OF-SELECTION.
PERFORM f_load_xls.
FORM : f_load_xls
FORM f_load_xls.
v_file = '
ZSAPDEV\SAPDEVINTERF$\COTACAO\TESTE.XLS'.
CALL FUNCTION 'ALSM_EXCEL_TO_INTERNAL_TABLE'
EXPORTING
filename = v_file
i_begin_col = begin_col
i_begin_row = begin_row
i_end_col = end_col
i_end_row = end_row
TABLES
intern = t_xls
EXCEPTIONS
inconsistent_parameters = 1
upload_ole = 2
OTHERS = 3.
IF sy-subrc <> 0.
MESSAGE ID SY-MSGID TYPE SY-MSGTY NUMBER SY-MSGNO
WITH SY-MSGV1 SY-MSGV2 SY-MSGV3 SY-MSGV4.
ENDIF.
CALL FUNCTION 'TEXT_CONVERT_XLS_TO_SAP'
EXPORTING
I_FIELD_SEPERATOR =
i_line_header = 'X'
i_tab_raw_data = it_raw " WORK TABLE
i_filename = v_file
TABLES
i_tab_converted_data = it_datatab[] "ACTUAL DATA
EXCEPTIONS
conversion_failed = 1
OTHERS = 2.
IF sy-subrc <> 0.
MESSAGE ID sy-msgid TYPE sy-msgty NUMBER sy-msgno
WITH sy-msgv1 sy-msgv2 sy-msgv3 sy-msgv4.
ENDIF.
t_ctmp[] = it_datatab[].
ENDFORM. "f_load_xls
both FM arent working, and when I try to execute in background mode, before anything, I recieve the following error:
Message text:
Error during import of clipboard contents
Message class:
ALSMEX
Message no.:
037
Message type:
A
and without the ASLM FM, the TEXT_CONVERT give me the conversion_failed exception...
the directories are right, that I am sure, because I just copy&paste it from CG3Z/CG3Y when I uploaded and downloaded to
check the file in the server...
am I missing something?
thanks again,
Roberto Macedo
(PS: I made another topic because none replied the other in 4 days and wasnt solved yet)

Hi!
You didn't find answer for this, because it is not possible. If you run your program in background, it is running on the server, and does not have any connection to your local machine. That's why you can't upload/download in background mode.
You might try to address somehow your local PC, with its IP or MAC address, but I don't think does this task worth so much time.
Run your program in online mode, or if you want to run it in background, then upload your file into the SAP server.
