Sending Excel as attachment in Email (Unicode)  

09:56 // hank jiang


I'm using SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1 FM to send excel attachments as emails to external addresses.

However, this the SAP upgrade to ECC6.0 from R/3 4.6B

then I cannot open BIG5 char excel, who does know how to sending Unicode excel as attachment in email.

the Excel can show Chinese , BIG5 code ,Japanese ,Korea .

OR which new funciton module in ECC6.0 like SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1 FM .

try this one.

    lv_string = str_data1.



          iv_string   = lv_string

          iv_codepage = '4103'  "suitable for MS Excel, leave empty

      iv_add_bom  = 'X'     "for other doc types


          et_solix  = binary_content

          ev_size   = size ).

    CATCH cx_bcs.

      MESSAGE e445(so).


        send_request = cl_bcs=>create_persistent( ).

Now  create document object from internal table with text


document = cl_document_bcs=>create_document(

          i_type    = 'RAW'

          i_text    = main_text

          i_subject = l_var ).     



          i_attachment_type    = 'xls'                               i_attachment_subject = ' Details'                      i_attachment_size    = size

          i_att_content_hex    = binary_content ).

  •     add document object to send request

        send_request->set_document( document ).

  •     --------- add recipient (e-mail address) -----------------------

  •     create recipient object

        recipient = cl_cam_address_bcs=>create_internet_address( abc at abc.com).

  •        recipient = cl_cam_address_bcs=>create_internet_address( 'abc at abc.com' ).

  •     add recipient object to send request

        send_request->add_recipient( recipient ).

        sent_to_all = send_request->send( i_with_error_screen = 'X' ).

        COMMIT WORK.

This will definitely work .if any doubts aask me.

    The class cl_bcs_convert is not available below support pack 16. And my guess is if your SAP system has gone through a ECC 6.0 upgrade very recently you probably don't have it.

Anyways we can still send unicode formatted excel attachments in ECC 6 by using the FM 'SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1'.

Also SAP note 190669 mentions that you should use the above FM, instead of SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1 wherever possible.

below is a sample code which i found in another thread to send an excel via the former FM. The encoding here is UTF-8 to support the unicode format in programs.

Note : cl_bcs_convert is a newer and better option to use. So it will be better if you can get it downloaded via SAP notes 1151257 and 1151258.
