Attaching PDF file to sales order at header level!


Hi All,

I want to know if we can attach a pdf file to sales order at header level and the file when attached should not be stored in SAP database instead get stored on document vault (similar functionality as it does through DMS document creation and attaching pdf file) .

SAP has given a facility to first create a DMS document and attach PDF file at sales order item level in the DMS document.( This PDF file is not stored on SAP database ) Later this document can be linked in VA02 at sales order line item level. But user doesn't want to do that way. They want to attach PDF file directly in sales order and at header level instead of attaching at line item level.

I found the small icon "Services for Object" in VA02, clicking on "Create attachment" we can attach PDF file but this file content will be stored in SAP database. As the number of attachments increase storage on SAP database keeps increase so Basis do not want this way instead they are preferring the PDF file getting stored in document vault (similar way as in CV01N transaction creation ) .

Does anyone know any way to solve this issue??? Please let me know if there needs to be any configuration or ABAP code to be written.

Thanks in advance!
