    Hi Vinayak,

    For Document Distribution see the below link.

    SAP Document Distribution[http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp60_sp/helpdata/en/c1/1c31a243c711d1893e0000e8323c4f/frameset.htm]

    Document Version mins....DIR version. mins like 01,02,03

    Content version mins in one DIR you are linking one excel file then you are changing this file on different different status so at that system generate the different file version. Number of times you change the file system will generate that many content version.

    For that you require do some config.

    First question am not able to understand.

    Regards,

    Sunny

    Hi,

    1) What is difference betn.object link and document link in DMS?

    Object Linking - DMS is a cross-application module which can be integrated to almost all modules of R/3, for connecting DMS with other modules there need some linkage, object linking.

    the settings for this can be found in DC10 with some of the standard available object links.

    for the modules link HR,Flexi RE we need to go for development of object links by means of new screens.

    there is term called as document hierachy and document structure which I think you are terming as Document link.

    document hierachy - is the function used to relate the document as per its priority, its gives the tree structure form once all the documents are linked.

    for ex : doc 1 is superior to document 2 and 3 so document hierarchy will be formed as

    doc 1

    doc 2 doc 3

    Document structure - is function used to form group of documents which is similar to Bill of materials in CAD.

    here, we can arrange a document in terms of serial numbers, quantity.

    2) What is document distribution?

    document distribution is the method of sending objects or notification through mail.

    it is a mailing process which can be sent within sap system and even to external mails.

    3) What is content version and document version.

    document version - each time when you create document, it gets created in terms of version.

    everytime if u go on creating document with same doc no, type and part the version goes on changing which differntiates the documents created everytime.

    for ex. - if ver 1 doc is created and later if some changes are to be done but the actual changes are also to be kept then new version can be created under same doc number,type and part.

    Content Version - this is related to status and to attachements.

    its morever similar to document version.

    in document version, new version is created for same doc number and type but

    in content version, whenver original attachment is modified a new content version (changed document is automatically created with new content version) is created. this is basically related to status.

    for ex. - status A attaches a document, status B reviews and if needs any changes to be done then new content version is created with new changes while status A attachment remains as it is.

    hope so this helps U..!

    Thank You,

    Manoj

    award points if useful..!
