Removing attachments from Purchase Order using DIAPI

Dear all,

I have added attachment to PO using DIAPI. I have given below the code.

Dim oAtt As SAPbobsCOM.Attachments2 = oCompany.GetBusinessObject(SAPbobsCOM.BoObjectTypes.oAttachments2)
Dim FileName As String = ""
Dim SourceFile As String = ""
Dim DestinationFile As String = ""

For i As Integer = 0 To PurchaseOrderInfo.Attachments.Length - 1

FileName = PurchaseOrderInfo.Attachments(i).FileName
SourceFile = PurchaseOrderInfo.Attachments(i).SourcePath & "\" & FileName
DestinationFile = PurchaseOrderInfo.Attachments(i).TargetPath & "\" & FileName

If i > 0 Then oAtt.Lines.Add()
oAtt.Lines.FileName = System.IO.Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(FileName)
oAtt.Lines.FileExtension = Replace(System.IO.Path.GetExtension(FileName), ".", "")
oAtt.Lines.SourcePath = PurchaseOrderInfo.Attachments(i).SourcePath

If System.IO.File.Exists(DestinationFile) Then
End If

If PurchaseOrderInfo.Attachments(i).Override = True Then
oAtt.Lines.Override = SAPbobsCOM.BoYesNoEnum.tYES
oAtt.Lines.Override = SAPbobsCOM.BoYesNoEnum.tNO
End If


Dim iAttEntry As Integer = -1
Dim lResult As Long
Dim lErrCode As Long, sErrMsg As String = ""

lResult = oAtt.Add()

It works fine. But, I am not able to remove an attachment via diapi.

Could you please help me how to solve this.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Manikandan,

    I guess that I would recreate a new Attachment2 object, by copying the lines that I want to keep and specifying the Override = tYES and doing a File.Delete on the file I want to remove.

    At the end, attach the new Attachment2 object to the PO (which isn't done in your code.

    I agree, it could be eathier...
