TCODE of the day : FILE : Maintain Logical Paths

Logical paths in SAP can be maintained using FILE transaction.
Logical Paths- FILE
Logical Paths- FILE
FILE is used to maintain the logical file paths(in simple words folder path) and logical file names. Each logical file path and file name is assigned to a physical file path (in simple words full file path in application server).

The advantage of this is it maintains uniformity in usage of file (either for reading or writing purpose). In once click the file path variable can be changed and it will reflect all where it is used.

In case of defining logical file path make sure to include tag <FILENAME> in full path otherwise, it will not get saved.
