Attaching documents SAP SYSTEM without storing in SAP server

Dear experts,

To attach documents in ME22N t-code, user has to click on "Services for objects" button which involved saving documents data in the SAP Server.

The requirement is to use a third party for storing document. SAP Note 530792-Storing documents in the generic object servives- affirm that is possible to define attachments using the archive link on optical archive.

I would like to know how to user archivelink to store attachement documents in Purchase order(ME22N)  on physical repository (shared document for example )

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

    This is a generic question and I try to awnser.

    1. We need to configure a content repository in OAC0. Content repository can be file system if you don't want to purchase one such as Filenet, Open text etc.

    2. Create a document type using OAC2.

    3. Assign the document type using OAC3 to a business object, in this case it is PO which is EKKO.

    If you want to use Create Attachment button and want it to goto Content Repository, then

    1. Create a new document category using OACT

    2. Assign it to SOFFPHIO as New Category field in SKPR08

    There could be more configuration steps.
