Creating new version by copying existing version without originals

Hi Folks ,

Is there any way we can control copying Original files & Classifications when we create a new version of document info record using existing template .

I have a situation that I need to copy all the information ( Like description , Object links etcc) of a existing document info record except the Classifications & Original files. This is required since the newer version of the document should have newer version of Original file attached on it.

Any input will be highly appreciable & rewarded.

Thanks & regards,

    Hi Ramesh,

    you can control this in the document type customizing in transaction DC10.

    1. Choose the relevant document type

    2. Go to folder "Define object links"

    Here you can see all the maintained objects which you can link to this

    document type.

    3. Select the relevant object

    4. double click this object to display the details

    5. By "When new version" you can choose between:

    - Selection by user

    - Ignore link or

    - Copy link automatically

    This will control what happens with existing object links when you create a new version.

    I hope this information is useful for you.

    Best regards,

    Christoph Hopf

      Pranav ,

      Thanks for this information . We have implemented this functionality in our interface program instead of this user exits to avoid this to be called for every touch of DIR.

      We basically have a interface which attach the original files. We included code to check if ther is already attachment exists , then we clear the attachments and attach the new drawings into it. In this way we need to keep the functrionality of SAP to copy the documents and retrict this only to the document which our program attaching the Original files .

      Thanks for the good input .

      Thanks & Regards,

      Ramesh babu .P
