Convert SOFM object to Binary format

Hi all,

I need to update the absence infotype record with the attachment after the employee's leave request is approved by the manager

I have the attachment in my workflow work item. I can extract the attachment from workflow using the FM - SAP_WAPI_GET_ATTACHMENTS. However this is returning the attachment in SOFM Object.

We thought of using following FM's to create the archive and add a link to PREL Object with proper key:

1. ARCHIVE_CREATE_FILE which takes filepath as input.

2. ARCHIVE_CREATE_TABLE accepts binary objects as input

So, we are struck now at converting the SOFM Object either into a file or to a binaryobject format so that we can use any of the above FMs.

Can anyone help me with this.

Thanks in advance.
