Generating an XML Document from an internal table in ABAP
Good day to all of you;
With ABAP, in the R/3 system, I'm trying to figure out a way to accomplish the following:
1) SELECT a set of Purchase Order data into an internal table.
2) Generate an XML document, containing the above data, using a specific schema.
I've been playing around with function module SAP_CONVERT_TO_XML_FORMAT which has the following interface:
CALL FUNCTION 'SAP_CONVERT_TO_XML_FORMAT'
I_FIELD_SEPERATOR = ''
I_LINE_HEADER = ''
I_FILENAME = v_fname
I_APPL_KEEP = ''
I_XML_DOC_NAME = v_docname
PE_BIN_FILESIZE = v_byte
I_TAB_SAP_DATA = i_SapData
I_TAB_CONVERTED_DATA = i_XMLData
CONVERSION_FAILED = 1
OTHERS = 2.
I'm uncertain as to whether or not the Export parameter, I_XML_DOC_NAME refers to some schema or definition and therefore have been excluding it. In doing so, the generated XML document seems to use the field name/type information from my itab for the tags.
If this function module requires an XML Document Name, how do I create one and where do I store it in R/3? If this is not the recommended solution, is anyone familiar with a way to load an XML schema, retrieve some data then have SAP generate an XML document using the schema?
Many thanks for any help available.
