When does 'DP_SEND_STREAM_TO_URL' returns ERRORSTATE = -1?

FM 'GUI_DOWNLOAD' raises exception UNKNOWN_DP_ERROR (ASCII mode).

The root of this exception is in call

Code: Select all

CALL METHOD OF H_DP-OBJ 'SecureSaveDataToUrl'  = ERRORSTATE 
         EXPORTING #1 = 'APPLICATION' 
                   #2 = 'X-UNKNOWN' 
                   #3 = 'file://C:\myfolder\myfile.txt'. 
where ERRORSTATE = -1.

What may cause the error?
OS = Win XP.

I don't know about -1 but yesterday I was getting a -3. This was caused by an under score in the file name.....

the interesting thing is, that everything works if you try to download a file from my laptop, but if executing from other machines the function is not working.

Hello,

Did anyone solve this problem? I'm having function GUI_DOWNLOAD raising exception unknown_dp_error when I call it in a program that creates a txt file in a server. When it's on my PC no problem. In terms of permissions everithing looks ok.

Thanks,

Sérgio

Hello

Even I also encountered the issue with DP_SEND_STREAM_TO_URL returns ERRORSTATE = -1.
I saw a lot of reasons for this issue to occur, someone said its SAPRouter issue.
Someone said I can download on local machine but not on server. etc.
And this leads to UNKNOWN_DP_ERROR exception for GUI_DOWNLOAD FM.
In my case I found that the file extension was getting unwanted special characters and hence the issue.

We are generating the file format at runtime for eg... ABC.011, ABC.022,,,,,,, ABC.998, ABC.999.
As we cross 999 and increment the serial no, the system starts appending .00* .becoz the counter is 3 digits only.
As soon as * comes in extension the issue start to come.
Hence, I can say that the UNKNOWN_DP_ERROR could occur even if the file format in filename has some unacceptable format issue.

Regards
Kunal
