ABAP Program Send email with PDF Attachment Problem

362 Views

Hi all,

I am having a problem with my program when I try to send a pdf attachment by email. The email i sent over to the user's inbox but is unable to open the attachment. Error message 'the file cannot be opened and might be damaged' is displayed when trying to open the attachment.

Below is the snippet of my code. please help to see if something is wrong with my code, i have gone through all the forums and still cannot find a solution as it is still giving me the same issue.

*---------------------------------------------------------------------*
* FORM send_email *
*---------------------------------------------------------------------*
* --> p_email *
*---------------------------------------------------------------------*

FORM send_email USING p_email.

CHECK NOT ( p_email IS INITIAL ).
REFRESH it_mess_bod.
* Default subject matter

gd_subject = 'Subject'.
gd_attachment_desc = 'Attachname'.
it_mess_bod = 'Message Body text, line 1'.
APPEND it_mess_bod.
it_mess_bod = 'Message Body text, line 2...'.
APPEND it_mess_bod.

* If no sender specified - default blank
IF p_sender EQ space.
gd_sender_type = space.
ELSE.
gd_sender_type = 'INT'.
ENDIF.

* Send file by email as .pdf
PERFORM send_file_as_email_attachment
tables it_mess_bod
it_mess_att
using p_email
'Test Attachment'
'PDF'
gd_attachment_name
gd_attachment_desc
