Attachment in VA01/VA21

Hello all,

I need to be able to attach files to sales document when creating them. I am able to do it while editing them (VA02/VA22), but the services for objects icon is not shown in VA01/VA21.

Can anyone tell me why?

Best regards,

Nuno Miguel Silva

    From what I understand this is how it works.

    First you need to have the sales document created in SAP so that you can link the attachments to this document number.

    In VA01 you wouldnt have the document number until you save the document. Hence you cannot have attachments in VA01/VA21 while the document is being created.

    System would not know which document number these files should be attached with while the sales document is still being created.

    In edit mode VA02/VA22 you already have a document number that can be associated(or linked) with the attachments.

      Hi Yatish,

      Thank you for the answer.

      I thought that should be the reason, but even so there could be a way to keep the attachments in memory and "link" them to the business object only after the save.

      Now i know it is not possible.

      Thank you.
