Sending email to persons is become quite common, and i found it is very simple to send email using CL_BCS. One more thing which is often needed is attachment in the email. I usually do in this way, like convert whatever format (either excel,pdf,doc,etc..,) into XSTRING then attach it in the mail. Then after some times, we need to format the email content, Color, table,Bigger Font, Bold…….. So i thought its better to use HTML, so we can format it as per our need. And another thing for receipients, we will often have user name but need to write logic to get email address (ie. SU01) .  These things are often used, so i write a Simple Function with these features..

Example For Importing Parameters:

I_SUBJECT = ‘Email Subject’.

APPEND ‘<b> Dear XXX </b>’ to IT_CONTENT.
APPEND ‘This is the Sample emali’ to IT_CONTENT.
APPEND ‘Thank You’ to IT_CONTENT.

LS_RECEIPIENTS-IUSRID = ‘USERNAME’.
APPEND LS_RECEIPIENTS TO IT_RECEIPIENTS.
LS_RECEIPIENTS-EMAIL = ‘abc@email.com’.
APPEND LS_RECEIPIENTS TO IT_RECEIPIENTS.

  CALL FUNCTION ‘ZSEND_EMAIL’
    EXPORTING
     i_subject              = I_SUBJECT
     it_content             = IT_CONTENT
     it_receipients         = IT_RECEIPIENTS.

If attachment needs to be added, remember to pass all the parameters for attachment.

I_ATTACH_TYPE = ‘PDF’.
I_ATTACH_SUBJECT = ‘Test Document.pdf’.
I_ATTACH_XSTRING = XSTRING.

  CALL FUNCTION ‘ZSEND_EMAIL’
    EXPORTING
     i_subject              = I_SUBJECT
     it_content             = IT_CONTENT
     it_receipients         = IT_RECEIPIENTS
     i_attach_type          = I_ATTACH_TYPE
     i_attach_subject       = I_ATTACH_SUBJECT
     i_attach_xstring       = I_ATTACH_XSTRING .
