how to send .XLSX File with multiple worksheets as an attachment

Dear All,

I am facing the issue while sending the mail with attachment type .XLSX. for the multiple Worksheets.

we have Tried with below possibilities :

1. Customized SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1 and Changed the Document type Size as from ( 3 to 4 ).

2. Tried with CL_BCS Functionality based on the reference Standard program BCS_EXAMPLE_7

3. Tried with ABAP2XLSX Functionality.

Finally we have achieved to send single worksheet with .XLSX Extension , But its not happening for Multiple worksheets.

Waiting for Solutions.

Regards ,

    • You have to create a new worksheet (or any number you need)

      If I remember well (in this system I have not yet installed it) there are 2 methods in LO_EXCEL to add_worksheet and SET_ACTIVE_WORKSHEET.

      With them you can add and activate the correct worksheet with a flow like the one below


      LO_EXCEL->SET_ACTIVE_WORKSHEET( n ) <-n is the worksheet number


      <---your code--->

      If you check ZCL_EXCEL class you can find pretty easily the methods you need.
      Sorry for the raw answer, but, as I stated, I do not have the code on this system for a more accurate one

    With little bit of XML knowledge and a know how of how Open XML Spreadsheet works, you can merge different XLSX files into 1 file. I have done this in the past.

    Considering the XLSX files contains only text data - not graphs, pictures etc - You just need to merge, Shared strings, Styles and Relationships for this to happen.

    Don't ask me for source code - I don't have access to it currently - but it is definitely doable without the help of external tools and by just using ABAP.

    Thanks, Juwin

    Dear Surendra,

    I Have Used ABAP2XLSX Concept and Written the Below Code:

    data:lo_excel type ref to zcl_excel ,

    lo_worksheet type ref to zcl_excel_worksheet ,

    * For first Sheet in the excel workbook

    " Get active sheet

    lo_worksheet = lo_excel->get_active_worksheet( ).

    lo_worksheet->title = 'First Sheet'.

    lo_worksheet->set_table( ip_table = ip_table

    ip_table_title = 'ITAB'"'LT_TEST'

    ip_hdr_style = lv_style_header_guid

    ip_body_style = lv_style_body_guid

    zlt_components = zlt_components ).

    * For second Sheet in the excel workbook

    Add a new work sheet and set the second table as above. ).

    and use below logic

    lv_file = lo_excel->save_as( zcl_excel=>c_xlsx ).

    " Convert to binary

    call function 'SCMS_XSTRING_TO_BINARY'


    buffer = lv_file


    output_length = lv_bytecount


    binary_tab = lt_file_tab.

    and then write send_request method.

    we need to write code for SET_TABLE and SET_TABLE2 to pass the Internal table data by using all the importing parameters.

    Thanks & Regards ,
