Logical file name


A platform-independent name for a file to be stored in the file system.


At runtime, the logical file name is converted by the function module FILE_GET_NAME to a platform-specific path and file name.

You can find out more about this setting in the Basis customizing under Client-independent maintenance of filenames and paths.


Enter a name which indicates what the physical file is used for.


The logical file name applies to all clients. In addition, you can define it specifically for the current client by using transaction SF01.
