Not able to open .XLSX file from email which was implemented using Note 1459896 to avoid pop up.

Hi All,

The requirement is to send .XLSX as email. Since normal cl_bcs supports .XLS (i.e) only of 3 character extension type ,Sap has provided the note 1459896 to avoid the pop up. But when I implement the note, Iam not even able to open the file as it is showing below error.

Please check below code

DATA send_request TYPE REF TO cl_bcs. " Send Request
DATA document TYPE REF TO cl_document_bcs. " Email Document
DATA sender TYPE REF TO cl_sapuser_bcs. " Sender
DATA recipient TYPE REF TO if_recipient_bcs. " Receiver
DATA bcs_exception TYPE REF TO cx_bcs. " Exception
DATA text TYPE bcsy_text. " Text
DATA lv_string TYPE string.


* Get new Send Request
send_request = cl_bcs=>create_persistent( ).

* create document from internal table with text
APPEND 'Please find attached files as REI Upload Error Report.'(t01) TO text.
document = cl_document_bcs=>create_document(
i_type = 'RAW'
i_text = text
i_length = '12'
i_subject = 'REI Upload Error Report'(t02) ).
* attachments
me->add_attachments( document ).

* add document to send request
send_request->set_document( document ).

* Sender
sender = cl_sapuser_bcs=>create( sy-uname ).
send_request->set_sender( i_sender = sender ).

* Receiver
recipient = cl_cam_address_bcs=>create_internet_address( v_email ).
i_recipient = recipient
i_express = 'X' ).

* Send email
i_with_error_screen = 'X' ).


CONCATENATE 'Email has been generated and sent to:'(m01) v_email
INTO lv_string
MESSAGE lv_string TYPE 'S'.

CATCH cx_bcs INTO bcs_exception.
lv_string = bcs_exception->get_text( ).
MESSAGE 'Error while generating Email'(m02) TYPE 'S'.
MESSAGE lv_string TYPE 'S'.

Kindly help me where I went wrong or let me know if anyone got the solution.

    sap cannot gewnerate xlsx file just comma or tab separated file. (like csv) the 4 digit extention you

    should put in the header table of the document or attachment with the key word '&SO_FILENAME as it is just

    written in the note.

    Best regards
