CSV file not appear as a CSV file in attach


I am sending an CSV file as an attach in an email. But the problem is that it appears as a PDF file, even though in SOST it appears as a CVS file. Does anyone faced this problem?

    How are you doing the attach and send? Are you naming it with a .csv (not CVS) suffix? For me, these have always shown up with an Excel icon when I send via email.

    I am sending like this:

    call method l_document->add_attachment


    i_attachment_type = 'csv'

    i_attachment_size = lv_size

    i_attachment_subject = 'Result File'

    i_att_content_hex = it_binary.

    • That's a good point but 'CSV' is actually valid - I've been using that and 'XLS' in custom email class methods with CL_BCS without any issues for years. The fact that the CSV file shows the correct format in the SAPConnect queue is strange. Format conversions are completed prior to rendering the document in the queue (as specifiied in the SMTP node configuration or in the language dependent device type conversion settings). If it's a SAPConnect problem, you should see the PDF format in the queue as well.

      Have you tried using a different email client as the receiver? Is yur email dispatch based on the old RFC method or an SMTP-based connection to a mail host? With the old, RFC method, you could have a connection to external software package which could be the issue (if I remember correctly).
