Problem in FM SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1

Dear All

I am using FM SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1 to send excel attachment in a mail.

The data is coming correctly but data in one column is coming in distorted format with lot of spaces that are not given at any point. I used 'CONDENSE' in all fields but it didnt help.

Kindly advice where can be the problem or any alternative FM.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Dinesh

    hi,

    use the procedure given below it will definately solve your problem:

    *Firstly export 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_name = 'Attach'.

    lt_packing_list-obj_descr = w_docdesc.

    lt_packing_list-doc_size = lw_tab_lines * 255.

    APPEND lt_packing_list.

    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

    TABLES

    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

    document_not_sent = 2

    document_type_not_exist = 3

    operation_no_authorization = 4

    parameter_error = 5

    x_error = 6

    enqueue_error = 7

    OTHERS = 8.

    Hope it will help you
