WebDynpro - Adobe interactive pdf attachments

I am creating an ABAP web dypro with a Adobe interactive form that also includes a workflow. I am having an issue passing the attachments with the PDF source to the next workflow task. When I save the PDF source from the first web dynpro view and then re-load the pdf source conext with this data for the next view, the attachments are not with the PDF when it is opened. Are the attachments stored with the PDF source in the context attribute? I have created a function that should list the attachments that I call before starting the workflow just to check but the attachments are not being returned, I am passing the pdf source context for the interactive form to the function module.

Thanks

Jim

    Hi Pallavi.

    if you look at OSS note 1080203, attachments are not support for Web Dynpro ABAP.

    What we had to do was create a custom controller/interface to handle the attachments. The user can browse for the attachment they want to include and then add this attachment to a table container. Once the user submits the form, the attachments are added to the pdf source using the stanard SAP class.

    In our case, we needed to pass the attachments to the next task in the SAP workflow, so we store the attachments in a cluster table and then get them to display on the next form.

    Hope this help. Let me know if you need any other info.

    Thanks

    Jim
