Hi community,

I am trying to attach the file through services for objects tool bar from info record ME11-create but when i am saving no attachment exits in the attachment list..so again i have to attach the file from ME12-change mode then it is showing in the attachment list.

    The link between info record and attachment is the info record number which is not know when you are in ME11 and doing the attachment because this number gets assigned when you save. Hence you can only attach a document in ME12, see OSS note 1827022 - Create attachment in ME11 not possible

    • Thanks Jurgen for reply ..but the client requirement is to attach a file in ME11 at the time of creation itself , so is it possible through any Enhancement or BADI? Please let me known the BADi or enhancement name if there such..

    • It is consistent with other transaction that you can't attach anything if the object is not yet known, like you cannot jump into a bus if the door is not open or the bus has not even reached your bus stop.

      Here is another note where it is explained: 2205373 - Attachment added in ME41/ME42/ME43 not visible in ME47/ME48 (and vice versa)

      Present the notes to your client, he may have a greater understanding, if not then has hopefully a big budget to get it developed by you.
