Add attachment to decision step?


Is there a simple way to create an attachment to the workdecision task ?


I have a workflow that was triggered by a Requested event of ADDRESSEMP object model.

This event is trigger whenever user change an address in the ESS system.

But now I need to send the the approval a workflow decision with an attachment that contains

the new address information.

What I've done.

1. I create a new method in ADDRESSEMP object that called AttachDoc, with the code below

include <cntn01>.

it_solix_tab TYPE solix-line OCCURS 0,
v_wa_solix TYPE solix,
v_att_id TYPE swr_att_id,
v_att_header TYPE swr_att_header,
v_xstring TYPE xstring,
v_workitemid TYPE swr_struct-workitemid,
v_input_length TYPE wsrm_error-wsrm_direction,
v_filename TYPE swr_att_header-file_name,
v_docname_only TYPE swr_att_header-file_name,
v_doc_extension TYPE swr_att_header-file_extension,
v_reltyp TYPE breltyp-reltype VALUE 'ATTA',
v_msgtyp TYPE sofm-doctp VALUE 'EXT',
v_swc_object TYPE swc_object.

TYPES: BEGIN OF t_message_key,
foltp TYPE so_fol_tp,
folyr TYPE so_fol_yr,
folno TYPE so_fol_no,
doctp TYPE so_doc_tp,
docyr TYPE so_doc_yr,
docno TYPE so_doc_no,
fortp TYPE so_for_tp,
foryr TYPE so_for_yr,
forno TYPE so_for_no,
END OF t_message_key.

DATA: v_message_key TYPE t_message_key,
v_doc_size TYPE i,
* Changes for Excel
v_bytes_read TYPE i,
v_temp_bytes_read TYPE i,
* End of Changes for Excel
v_tab_lines TYPE i,
v_offset TYPE i,
v_length TYPE i.

CONSTANTS: c_slash VALUE '/'.

swc_get_table container 'IT_SOLIX_TAB' it_solix_tab.

* get the input values
swc_get_element container 'V_WORKITEMID' v_workitemid.
swc_get_element container 'V_INPUT_LENGTH' v_input_length.

input_length = v_input_length
buffer = v_xstring
binary_tab = it_solix_tab.

v_att_header-file_type = 'B'.
v_att_header-file_name = 'Address'.
v_att_header-file_extension = 'PDF'.
v_att_header-language = sy-langu.

workitem_id = v_workitemid
att_header = v_att_header
att_bin = v_xstring
att_id = v_att_id.
* pass attachment id and internal document number for SOFM
swc_set_element container 'ATT_ID' v_att_id.
swc_set_element container 'SOFM' v_att_id-doc_id.

The parameter of this function is Table.

2. I created a simple workflow

3. I created a new container for ADDRESSEMP

But I'm lost with the data binding. Could somebody please help? I just need a simple ways to create attachment in the user decision

    Hi Sam

    Are you adding first the attachment to the workflow container ?

    What I have for instance done in one example is used TS48907979 to wonvert an office document into an SOFM document then add it to an GO_SOFM container element of the workflow

    Then you create your own copy of the decision task and add the container IO_SOFM

    and you do the binding from workflow container GO_SOFM to IO_SOFM

    So as soon as you have your workflow container element in the form of SOFM it is quite straight forward
