Check the following -

Create Number Range - A number range must be created for SAP Archive Link.

Transaction code: OANR, For this process, additional authorisation is required for S_NUMBER = 03 ARCHIVELNK.

In 'Intervals', create number range 01 from 0000000001 to 9999999999 without the external number flag.

This may already exist.

Assign Documents Class- Document type HRICOLFOTO must exist with document class JPG.

Transaction code: OAC2, Table TOAVE

Document type settings- Document type HRICOLFOTO must be linked to object type PREL and Infotype 0002.

Transaction code: SM31, Table V_T585O (View). Set all three columns here to minuses and don't put a flag in the check box.

Content Repository- Create a content repository with storage type FILE archive.

Transaction code OAC0, IMG: Basis Components --> Basis Services --> SAP Archive Link --> Basic Settings --> Maintain content repositories

Swap from display to amend. Select a current entry and 'copy' or just hit 'create'. Then select .

Then fill in the details as below:

Choose a two character name - can use Zx (where x is a number) if you wish to use the customer namespace. Choose the relevant description.

Set DocArea to be 'Archive Link'

Storage type - set to R/3 Database

Protocol - leave blank

Choose Version no. 0046 (or the latest one that is available)

Contents table - set this to SDOKCONT1

Basic Path - c:\ (this should be set to where the photos are all held)

Archive Path - c:\ (this is the area from where the photos are retrieved)

Output Device - can leave blank

Enter the path name where the photos are to be loaded from. Note this is for loading only. When the photos are linked into the sap system, actually, SAP takes a 'copy' and stores it elsewhere. The path may only need to be entered to 'Arch.path', but entering to all three doesn't seem to hurt.
