how to send mails to multiple recipents using SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API

Hi ,

I am using the FM "SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API".

I am able to send an Excel sheet as attachement, but my requirement is to send multiple mails to the corresponding persons. I tried using coma, colan, semi colan as the separator in the import parameter SENDER_ADDRESS for two different mail id's but it was not useful.

I need to send mails to multiple recipens using the same FM. (keeping one person in to list and two of the persons in CC.)

can any on throw some light on this.

Thanks

rewards will be great.....................................

    Hi,

    The code below demonstrates how to send an email to an external email address(test@sapdev.co.uk),

    where the data is stored within a .xls attachment.

    Instead of the statement, <b>PARAMETERS: p_email TYPE somlreci1-receiver

    DEFAULT 'test@sapdev.co.uk'.,

    use select-options & give the e-mail addresses that you want.

    Hi suman,

    try by passing the recipents in the table recievers.

    data : tbl_recievers type standard table of SOMLRECI1,

    wa_recievers type SOMLRECI1.

    wa_recievers-RECEIVER = mail id.

    append wa_recievers to tbl_recievers.

    clear wa_recievers.

    wa_recievers-RECEIVER = mail id.

    wa_recievers-COPY = 'X'

    append wa_recievers to tbl_recievers.

    clear wa_recievers.

    wa_recievers-RECEIVER = mail id.

    wa_recievers-COPY = 'X'.

    append wa_recievers to tbl_recievers.

    clear wa_recievers.

    Pass this table to the tables field RECEIVERS.of FM SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1.

    I think it will work.

    Regards,

    Kasinath

    Hi Suman,

    I'm using SAP R/3 v.4.6C, and I cannot find this function module. Instead, there is another function called "SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1". Here, there's a tables parameter called "RECEIVERS", which can be used to send a mail to several addresses.

    I hope it helps. Best regards,

    Alvaro

    REC_LIST-RECEIVER = 'test@test.de'. "email address

    REC_LIST-REC_TYPE = 'U'.

    APPEND REC_LIST.

    CLEAR REC_LIST.

    REC_LIST-RECEIVER = 'test1@test1.de'. "email address

    REC_LIST-REC_TYPE = 'U'.

    <b> REC_LIST-COPY = 'X'.</b>

    APPEND REC_LIST.
