WEB DMS Error uploading file / create DIR

Hi SapGurus,

I have a problem creating new documents using WEB DMS, i remember trying to do it some time ago, and i could manually create the documents through WEB-DMS Create option choosing the configured document type,

but right now iam not able to upload any original file and create a NEW DIR, as it gives me an error message "an Error occurred while loading file" please suggest me what may be wrong with this now.

Also can we maintain standard SAP Object links while creating the DIR through WEBDMS, as iam not able to find the SAP Object link Tab / field while creating the DIR In WEB DMS,

(FYI, in the find documents we could find the document based on the SAP Object link Reference,) so i think there is an option to maintain SAP Object link details for the DIR getting created.

Thanks and regards

Priya S

    Hi Priya,

    please note that in WebDocuments only the existing object links are displayed. Therefore not all maintained objects are visible but only those where links exists.

    There are certain selected data sections in WebDocuments that are shown in display mode or in change mode. The following sections can only be displayed and not changed

    - Data for Document key

    - Data for Object Links

    The following sections can be changed in WebDocuments

    - Document Data

    - Additional Data

    - Originals

    - Description

    Hence when a Document Info Record is created or changed, the object links data are not shown. It is shown only in search and display mode. This is the way system is designed. You can look at the application help for more information on the web documents. Also kindly note that WebDocuments is not the complete replica of SAP GUI CV01n, CV02n or CV03n. It has some limitations when compared to SAP GUI transactions. So as no new links could be created in WebDocuments not all available objects are displayed.

    I hope this information could be useful regarding the object link behavior in WebDMS.

    Best regards,

    1.When you choose the Create link on the WebDocuments homepage, you get a list of all the document types you can choose for processing in the Web interface. You make these settings in the Customizing for Document Management, under Set WebDocuments (BSP).

    2. You make the settings in the substeps Define Document Type for Web Application and Define Sequence for Field Groups.

    3. Similarly you could Creat original file also.......

    Note: custamization settings i gaven, last post. check those and try should work,
