I guess all of us often had to work with files in ABAP usign some of available FM like 'GUI_UPLOAD', 'GUI_DOWNLOAD' etc. When doing so sometimes there is a need to display in ALV the filename with or without extension . There are plenty of FM that helps to do so but the have one disadvantage -> they base on 3 digit extension and sometimes they have limited path size.
But where stadard SAP cannot help you, then you have to helpyourself with ABAP. There is a really simple way to split filename/extension without any restrictions known from standard FM. Here is a code for a method, but you can use it also to create form or FM.Add a comment
