BAPI_DOCUMENT_CREATE2 - File not attached to SAP document

Hi all,

I use the fm BAPI_DOCUMENT_CREATE2 to create a SAP document.

The BAPI creates the SAP document but doesn't attach the given files.

Here is my coding:

ls_doc-documenttype = doctyp.

ls_doc-documentnumber = ''.

ls_doc-documentversion = docvs.

ls_doc-documentpart = docprt.

ls_doc-description = it_fdata-bez.

ls_doc-username = sy-uname.

  • Files

REFRESH lt_files.

CLEAR lt_files.

lt_files-documenttype = doctyp.

lt_files-documentversion = docvs.

lt_files-documentpart = docprt.

lt_files-sourcedatacarrier = 'DEFAULT'.

lt_files-storagecategory = 'DMS_C1_ST'.

lt_files-docfile = it_fdata-path.

lt_files-wsapplication = 'PDF'.

lt_files-description = it_fdata-bez.

lt_files-originaltype = 1.

lt_files-checkedin = 'X'.

APPEND lt_files.

  • Object link to material master

CLEAR lt_drad.

REFRESH lt_drad.

lt_drad-objecttype = 'MARA'.

lt_drad-objectkey = it_fdata-matnr.

APPEND lt_drad.

  • Create document

CALL FUNCTION 'BAPI_DOCUMENT_CREATE2'

EXPORTING

documentdata = ls_doc

IMPORTING

return = ls_return

documentnumber = doknr

TABLES

objectlinks = lt_drad

documentfiles = lt_files.

commit work.

What is missing that the files were attached to the SAP document?

I have also tried to add the following fm:

CALL FUNCTION 'BAPI_DOCUMENT_CHECKIN2'

EXPORTING

documenttype = 'DMO'

documentnumber = doknr

documentpart = '000'

documentversion = '00'

hostname = ''

statusintern = ''

statusextern = ''

statuslog = ''

IMPORTING

return = ls_return

TABLES

documentfiles = lt_files.

But the files are also missing.

Any ideas?

regards

Hi Wolfgang,

based on the data for the BAPI I would recommend you to leave the paramter 'lt_files-checkedin' blank. Because in case that a storage category is entered the file will be checked in automatically.

Further please check if the value at 'it_fdata-path' is correct and here the whole path plus filename is handed over. I also saw that you hand over the value 'DEFAULT' for the data carrier. Do you have maintained path prefix in the data carrier DEFAULT in transaction DC20? Because if the whole path is handed over in the 'it_fdata-path' parameter the data carrier field should

remain empty too.

As you enter the data in table DOCUMENTFILES I think you want to store the original files in the KPRO. Please check in transaction DC10 if the flag 'Use KPRO' is set for the used document type.

After the BAPI_DOCUMENT_CREATE2 is executed successfully please execute the BAPI_TRANSACTION_COMMIT as this module is required to write the new entries on the database tables.

For further help, please check the SAP note 766277 or transaction BAPI where you can find a complete documentation about all DMS related BAPIs and also sample coding to see how these BAPIs needs to be filled.

Best regards,

Christoph
