Email with worklfow problem text is broken in middle.

HI ,

I have a problem as described below:


To send Email notification using workflow .

I am using the standard method <i>SENDTASKDESCRIPTION</i> of BOR object <i>SELFITEM</i> in the task .

while passing the text in the email i have a url link

which is quite long and has character equal to as shown below :


Problem :

1) Is there a way I can hide this link or create a hyperlink to this with a small text like for example text 'click here ' will have the hyperlink . But as I understood its only possible with HTML Email . And SAP does not support to conver the raw text to HTML. and the possible solution to achive this I believe is to code the logic.

If some have some have other way to achive this please let me know ?

2) Secondly the link gets broken in between when it is sent from SAP and to the Outlook . SO the email which is seen by the user does not have this link in complete .

Can I stop the system not to braeak this link while sending ?

Thanks in advance for spending you valuable time !

Thanks and Kind Regards,

    Hi Ankur,

    Standard SAP uses SAPscript for creating the email, which breaks down the lines to 60 characters.

    The easiest way to achieve the same is to write your own Function Module (you can go up to 1024 characters then). In this module you use the standard SAP FM SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1 to send the email.

    By setting the body type to HTML you can create a hyperlink with just a text to be displayed.

      HI John,

      Many thanks for you prompt reply!

      Well I have just now solved this issue and in a little bit more simpler way .

      I am using the container linewidth for specifying this length and it works.

      But thanks for your suggestion .

      Kind Regards,
