Report as HTML attachment – why one of the image is disappearing?
Hi I am Joffy working as SAP Development Consultant.
This blog is about one of the issue that we faced recently which many others has faced earlier
but solution not clearly documented anywhere. One cute bug. 🙂
We were in the developement of a new Report as HTML attachment emailing requirement
where we getting the report as list object by submiting the report and exporting to memory.
and later converting to HTML for generating the attachment content.
But while user acceptance testing an image missing error was noted as shown below.
What happened to that image ? After verifying the source of this HTML page a clue was got about this missing icon image.
So the possible solutions are
1) download the ICON image and include that file pathin the HTML generation code.
2) Filter out the HTML code for image <IMG>
Refer the below code.txt file for code for removing the image html tag
We used the second solution as SAP as adopted the same in some of HTML based mail sending function module.
This is may be a small issue but has lots of technical stuffs involved.
Finally the issue is resolved and our utility is live in PRD. 🙂
