How to copy DIR in SAP DMS ?

Dear Experts,

We have large number of documents with following combination

1) Doc type: ABC
Doc part: 123

2) Doc Type: ABC
Doc part:000

Now the business requirement is to create a new doc type XYZ and move all the DIRs with combination of DocType: ABC & Doc Part:000 to this new Document type.

I did some research in terms of BAPI but could not find any direct hit to the solution.

Can you guys throw some thoughts on how this can be achieved.

    Hi Deepak,

    generally there are different ways to achieve this.

    1. EasyDMS
      If you are working with EasyDMS you can search a DIR, mark it and then use Copy & Paste to create the copy of the document.
    2. ERP System
      Here you can use BAPIs like BAPI_DOCUMENT_CREATEFROMSRC2 or a sequence of BAPI_DOCUMENT_GETDETAIL2 (read source DIR data) and BAPI_DOCUMENT_CREATE2 (create copy).

    Best regards,
