Print documents in External weblinks in GOS

Hi All,

The requirement is to print the documents attached in MM03 which are saved as external links (URL) in SAP.

Is there any standard procedure for this ?

How can this be achieved.

  • Could you please tell us which kind of URL you have? (http?)

    Is the SAP system able to reach this URL? (RSICFCLTST01 program for instance, or create a program which uses CL_HTTP_* classes - refer to the forum/SAP library)

    What are the types of files to be printed? (for instance, you cannot send directly a Word document to a printer, there must be a software to convert it to the language of the printer)

    How do the client print these documents until now?

    Short answer is "no", there is no standard process. Simply opening a link in browser and using the browser's print feature seems like an obvious low-cost solution.

    If something more robust is expected (why?) then I believe it's out of scope of this question and free SCN consulting.

      Hi Sridhar,

      Thank you for your inputs. This code works well for documents of type ATTA (Attachments). Your reply is surely helpful.

      The problem is when the list has some URL (External Links). These links are nothing but addresses of some documents. Those documents are to be printed onto SAP printer.
