Error in MSDS Import using CG36VEN


We have upgrade the EHP from 2 to 6 for SAP ECC. After the upgrade we observe there is an issue with Vendor MSDS import. When MSDS.Doc is imported, in CG50 the report does not open up. It comes up with the error


Whereas when the same MSDS is imported as MSDS.DOCX or MSDS.PDF, it is opening up in CG50. Is this due to .doc extension not supported?

    • Dear Murali

      I did not complety catch your problem. To import a report you have two options:

      a.) use standard report import process

      b.) use special transaction to import the report (desined especially for vendor SDS/MSDS)

      In both cases you should not "mix" the document type. That means: if you have a "pdf" this is dofferent to a "*doc". I havn't check the cosutomizing. But if OYu use fpr both the document type "IBD" it may not work.

      Therefore these would be my recommendations:

      a.) check the ESTDH entries of report

      b.) you will get the "WWI document key"

      c.) then use SAP DMS functionality to check content of report (can you display ?...)

      d.) then check generation variants as used and link to document type in customizing

      e.) you should may be check if you succeed to import report and display it using the "standard import" process as well.


      To my knowledge: only with EnhPack the "special" transaction" is improved but not with EnhPack 6.
