send mail with pdf (problem when pdf is stored on disk)

Hello,

another mail-pdf-attachment problem 😊

The problem I'm having is when trying to send a mail with a PDF attachment which is located on my c:\.

What I am doing right now is reading the contents of the file with the FM GUI_UPLOAD and using this in the FM SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1. But apparantly this is not the correct way to retrieve the data from the PDF, as it gives an error when I try to open it.

What is the solution?

(In short: I want to include a PDF as attachment that is stored on the harddisk)

Thanks in advance for any help. 😊

    Hi Dave,

    did you take care about to indicates the exact size of the file when you send the data ?

    Hi Dave,

    1. There is some trick involved

    in the binary files.

    2. I have made a program (and it works fantastic)

    ONLY 6 LINES FOR EMAILING

    BELIEVE ME

    ITS A FANTASTIC PROGRAM.

    IT WILL WORK LIKE OUTLOOK EXPRESS !

    3. The user is provided with

    a) file name

    b) email address to send mail

    and it sends ANY FILE (.xls,.pdf .xyz..)

    Instantaneously !

    -


    4. Make two things first :

    1. Include with the name : ZAMI_INCLFOR_MAIL

    2. Report with the name : ZAM_TEMP147 (any name will do)

    3. Activate both and execute (2)

    4. After providing filename, email adress

    5. Code for Include :
