<?mso-application progid="Excel.Sheet"?> in XMLSS from SAP

I must generate an XML StyleSheet file, like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<?mso-application progid="Excel.Sheet"?>

<Workbook xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet"





My problem is that when I can't generate the line:

<?mso-application progid="Excel.Sheet"?>

as the first line SAP generates automatically, and then I add the first element "Workbook".

My code:


TYPES: BEGIN OF xml_line,

data(256) TYPE x,

END OF xml_line.

CONSTANTS c_encoding TYPE string VALUE 'UTF-8'.

DATA: o_ixml TYPE REF TO if_ixml,

o_stream_factory TYPE REF TO if_ixml_stream_factory,

o_encoding TYPE REF TO if_ixml_encoding,

o_ostream TYPE REF TO if_ixml_ostream,

o_xmldoc TYPE REF TO if_ixml_document.

DATA: i_xml_table TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF xml_line,

v_xml_size TYPE i.

o_ixml = cl_ixml=>create( ).

o_stream_factory = o_ixml->create_stream_factory( ).

o_encoding = o_ixml->create_encoding(

character_set = c_encoding

byte_order = if_ixml_encoding=>co_little_endian ).

o_ostream = o_stream_factory->create_ostream_itable(

i_xml_table ).

o_ostream->set_encoding( encoding = o_encoding ).

o_xmldoc = o_ixml->create_document( ).

o_xmldoc->set_encoding( o_encoding ).

o_xmldoc->set_standalone( abap_true ).

DATA: o_workbook TYPE REF TO if_ixml_element.

o_workbook = o_xmldoc->create_simple_element(

name = 'ss:Workbook'

parent = o_xmldoc ).

DATA: o_renderer TYPE REF TO if_ixml_renderer.

o_renderer = o_ixml->create_renderer( ostream = o_ostream

document = o_xmldoc ).

o_renderer->render( ).

v_xml_size = o_ostream->get_num_written_raw( ).

CALL METHOD cl_gui_frontend_services=>gui_download


bin_filesize = v_xml_size

filename = 'c:\Documents and Settings\martin.borda\Desktop\a.xml'

filetype = 'BIN'


data_tab = i_xml_table.

Thanks in advance.

    Here is how I did it in my app:

    excel_pi = xml_doc->create_pi_parsed( name = 'mso-application' ).

    excel_pi->set_attribute( name = 'progid'

    value = 'Excel.Sheet').

    xml_doc->append_child( excel_pi ).

    use method CREATE_SIMPLE_ELEMENT in order to create your node before the Workbook
