Issues related to uploading documents and file size

Hi Experts,

1.My client is using SAP Easy DMS and maintaining documents in the public and private folders. Using Batch Input Recording in LSMW, I am able to upload documents by selecting screen in CV01N. But when i select an folder (Public folder) from browser then i am not able to record transaction.

2. In document type, i have ticked KPRO and put file size 0 but it is allowing original documents to be store. But when i do not tick KPRO then it is allowing the same.

Why the system behaving like this, please tell me gurus.

Kind regards

    Hi Vikas,

    regarding your first question I think that it should work with LSMW if you select the folder document info record in the backend transaction CV02N. In the backend EasyDMS folders are always document info records which are header of a document BOM. This BOM structure can be displayed or maintained in transaction CV12/CV13 too. So I'm not sure if LSMW could be used in EasyDMS.

    Regarding your second question I can offer you the following possible solutions

    for limiting the maximum file size.

    1. Non-KPRO storage

    If you do not use the Content Server (KPRO) for storing your originals

    in DMS there is a settings in transaction DC10. For each document type

    you can define a file size limit here in the field 'File size'.

    This setting shows the maximum size (in bytes) of an original

    application file for archiving to the SAP database. But this works only

    if the 'use KPRO' flag is not set and the originals are stored in

    a vault, archive or SAP-SYSTEM.

    2. KPRO storage

    If you use the KPRO for checking in your originals then there is no

    setting to limit the possible file size. There is only a technical limit

    of the maximum file size at about 2GB. Then the checking to the KPRO

    throws an error message. However if you need a limitation of the file

    size also in this case I can only suggest to to develop your own

    check in a BADI implementation. I think the most useful BADI therefore

    would be DOCUMENT_FILES01. You can check this BADI and its mehtods in

    transaction SE18.

    I hope this information could be useful for you.

    Best regards,

    Hi Vikas,

    whether uploading multiple attachment in one DIR through std. LSMW could be possible?
