    Hi ViViD,

    SAP DMS offers Web Services that allow to download, store and maintain documents stored in SAP DMS.

    An example where eMails from Outlook are stored in SAP DMS is described in the following whitepaper:

    Best regards,

    André

    I do really appreciate your replies. But I would be thankful if you tell me how to read a document from DMS via .Net Connector.

    That's really my main concern...

    OK, since you are also insisting to help me let me put you in the picture.

    We have a Training Software "LMS", which teaches employees how to operate certain gadgets on the plant. These learning materials are basically the work instructions of the plant. Currently we are keeping them on DMS.

    Before we were keeping copies of them, one is inside DMS and the other resides on a shared folder, but that causes our last plant shutdown, because they forgot to update the shared folder document when they updated DMS document.

    So we are ordered now to connect Training Software to DMS Document, so that when a learner wants to read he shall read the document in the DMS -which is the most updated.

    Training Software is .Net, and what i want to do is, i want to let this software to read from the DMS directly.

    we have ECC 6 Ver 7, EP V 7, XI V 7.

    I have read little on how to retrieve it as a web service, but i don't believe we have, because we are in the process of deploying XI, and it will take another 1 month or so.

    Again thanks for insisting to help me 😊
