    HI ,

    For this u hav to use to use FM: SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1

    SAMPLE CODE FOR EXPORTING INTERNAL TABLE DATA IN EXCEL FORMAT THROUGH MAIL :

    FIRSTLY exported the data to memory using the FM LIST_FROM_MEMORY.

    CALL FUNCTION 'LIST_FROM_MEMORY'
    TABLES
    listobject = t_listobject
    EXCEPTIONS
    not_found = 1
    OTHERS = 2.
    IF sy-subrc 0.
    MESSAGE e000(su) WITH text-001.
    ENDIF.
    
    then i converted it into ASCII using LIST_TO_ASCI,
    
    CALL FUNCTION 'LIST_TO_ASCI'
    TABLES
    listasci = t_xlstab
    listobject = t_listobject
    EXCEPTIONS
    empty_list = 1
    list_index_invalid = 2
    OTHERS = 3.
    IF sy-subrc NE 0.
    MESSAGE e003(yuksdbfzs).
    ENDIF.
    
    This gives the data in ASCII format separated by '|' and the header has '-', dashes. If you use this internal table directly without any proccesing in *SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1*, then you will not get a good excel sheet attachment. To overcome this limitation, i used cl_abap_char_utilities=>newline and cl_abap_char_utilities=>horizontal_tab to add horizontal and vertical tabs to the internal table, replacing all occurences of '|' with 
    cl_abap_char_utilities=>horizontal_tab.
    
    Set the doc_type as 'XLS', create the body and header using the packing_list and pass the data to be downloaded to SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1 as contents_bin.
    This will create an excel attachment.
    
    Sample code for formatting the data for the attachment in excel format.
    u2022	Format the data for excel file download 
    LOOP AT t_xlstab INTO wa_xlstab .
    DESCRIBE TABLE t_xlstab LINES lw_cnt.
    CLEAR lw_sytabix.
    lw_sytabix = sy-tabix.
    u2022	If not new line then replace '|' by tabs 
    IF NOT wa_xlstab EQ cl_abap_char_utilities=>newline.
    REPLACE ALL OCCURRENCES OF '|' IN wa_xlstab
    WITH cl_abap_char_utilities=>horizontal_tab.
    MODIFY t_xlstab FROM wa_xlstab .
    CLEAR wa_xlstab.
    wa_xlstab = cl_abap_char_utilities=>newline.
    IF lw_cnt NE 0 .
    lw_sytabix = lw_sytabix + 1.
    u2022	Insert new line for the excel data 
    INSERT wa_xlstab INTO t_xlstab INDEX lw_sytabix.
    lw_cnt = lw_cnt - 1.
    ENDIF.
    CLEAR wa_xlstab.
    ENDIF.
    ENDLOOP.
    Sample code for creating attachment and sending mail:
    
    FORM send_mail .
    u2022	Define the attachment format 
    lw_doc_type = 'XLS'.
    u2022	Create the document which is to be sent 
    lwa_doc_chng-obj_name = 'List'.
    lwa_doc_chng-obj_descr = w_subject. "Subject
    lwa_doc_chng-obj_langu = sy-langu.
    u2022	Fill the document data and get size of message 
    LOOP AT t_message.
    lt_objtxt = t_message-line.
    APPEND lt_objtxt.
    ENDLOOP.
    
    DESCRIBE TABLE lt_objtxt LINES lw_tab_lines.
    IF lw_tab_lines GT 0.
    READ TABLE lt_objtxt INDEX lw_tab_lines.
    lwa_doc_chng-doc_size = ( lw_tab_lines - 1 ) * 255 + STRLEN( lt_objtxt ).
    lwa_doc_chng-obj_langu = sy-langu.
    lwa_doc_chng-sensitivty = 'F'.
    ELSE.
    lwa_doc_chng-doc_size = 0.
    ENDIF.
    u2022	Fill Packing List For the body of e-mail 
    lt_packing_list-head_start = 1.
    lt_packing_list-head_num = 0.
    lt_packing_list-body_start = 1.
    lt_packing_list-body_num = lw_tab_lines.
    lt_packing_list-doc_type = 'RAW'.
    APPEND lt_packing_list.
    u2022	Create the attachment (the list itself) 
    DESCRIBE TABLE t_xlstab LINES lw_tab_lines.
    u2022	Fill the fields of the packing_list for creating the attachment: 
    lt_packing_list-transf_bin = 'X'.
    lt_packing_list-head_start = 1.
    lt_packing_list-head_num = 0.
    lt_packing_list-body_start = 1.
    lt_packing_list-body_num = lw_tab_lines.
    lt_packing_list-doc_type = lw_doc_type.

    lt_packing_list-obj_descr = w_docdesc.
    lt_packing_list-doc_size = lw_tab_lines * 255.

    u2022	Fill the mail recipient list 
    lt_reclist-rec_type = 'U'.
    LOOP AT t_recipient_list.
    lt_reclist-receiver = t_recipient_list-address.
    APPEND lt_reclist.
    ENDLOOP.
    u2022	Finally send E-Mail 
    CALL FUNCTION *'SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1'*EXPORTING
    document_data = lwa_doc_chng
    put_in_outbox = 'X'
    commit_work = 'X'
    IMPORTING
    sent_to_all = lw_sent_to_all

    packing_list = lt_packing_list
    object_header = lt_objhead
    contents_bin = t_xlstab
    contents_txt = lt_objtxt
    receivers = lt_reclist
    EXCEPTIONS
    too_many_receivers = 1
