PDF Originals renamed with prefix 'S'

Hello SAP Gurus,

We have a problem while viewing the originals of a DIR in Adobe Acrobat. The file name is prefixed with an 'S' while opening with Adobe Eg: S126789856_01_001.pdf. This might be because of the new SAP GUI?

Please Advise.

Thanks & Regards,

Vishnu Priya

    Hi Vishnu,

    generally I think that this is not due to the SAPGUI. Normally the local created filename is generated like 01.pdf or with using the origin filename when the flag 'You cannot rename ...' is set in transaction DC30.

    So I think that maybe a BADI implementation could be the reason why always a 'S' is added to the filename. Could you please check if you have active BADI implementations of DOCUMENT_FILES01 or DOCUMENT_STORAGE01.

    Best regards,

    Christoph

      Hello Christoph,

      I checked the BADI, and there is just one active implementation IF_EX_DOCUMENT_FILES01~BEFORE_START_APPL. This method does not contain anything relavant to the file name. Please provide me with further inputs.

      Thanks for your time!!

      Regards,

      Vishnu Priya.

    I think this problem is caused by an error with the temp dir where the name is cut off on 70 chars.

    To solve this, you can set a temp dir in DC20 (for Default) or you can ask OSS for Note 1568632.
