Document type to default content repository

Is it possible to configure the DMS system so that when you create a document using CV01N and check in the original (using a KPro document type) it will enter it into a content repository by default, without using the pop-up box.

For example a document of type DMO (if DMO it has KPRO checked in it's setup)  - always puts the original document in  DMS_C1_ST?

Thanks for any advice.


Dear Arthur,

if I understood your latest information correctly your request is that
the files are stored automatically to storage category if
you add a file of a specific workstation application to a document info record and save it.
This first setting enables the automatic start of the checkin
process. But to have a specific storage category choosen for an
original workstation application, you have to do another setting and
create a profile in your system in the customizing under

- Cross Application Components
     - Document Management System
         - General Data
             - Define profile

For this profile pleasee add your workstation applications under
"Determine definitions for applications". Here you can maintain the
default storage category for this application in field 'Storage cat.'.

Since this profile is created assign it to all your users directly.
Then if an user adds a new original file and chooses a workstation
application the system should take the storage category automatically
from the profile.
To achieve an automatic checkin behavior the additional required setting here are the flags
"Checkin" and "Checkin required" which must be set for the used document status in transaction DC10.

Another proposal would be to use the BADI DOCUMENT_STORAGE01 which
shoudl offer also methods to control which storage category should
be taken for which workstation application.

I hope that this information could be useful for you. To set up this
scenario in detail I would recommend you to contact your local
consulting organisation too which will help you in realising a solution
that meets all your requirements.

Best regards,
