    Here are some vital steps that you can follow to be able to attach Documents using BDS.

    1. Check and create an entry if required in SBDSV1 for the Business Object. Specify the Logical, Physical and Relational Document Classes here.

    2. Remember that you need not create new Classes and can re-use the existing ones as long as you have the possibility to let the attachments created in SAP DB itself. But, if you feel the need that the documents must be created in an external content server, then you have to create a content repository (OAC0) and wrap it in a content category (OACT) and then assign it in the Physical document class (table SDOKPHCL)

    3. The attachments can be made to the instance of Business Object in OAOR.

    4. Make use of the available methods in the global class CL_BDS_DOCUMENT_SET to suit your needs.

    Hope this info gives you the required insight.

    With Regards
