If you haven’t entry in the SOUD table you could add-it dynamically with the function SO_USER_AUTOMATIC_INSERT.

If you use an entry of the NAST table (configuration with the NACE transaction ..), instead of creating manually the MAIL_APPL_OBJ, MAIL_RECIPIENT, MAIL_SENDER, you only have to use the function WFMC_PREPARE_SMART_FORM.

The code is little more complex.

First, we need to execute the Smartform, but without printing it. We asked SAP to create XDF and XSF, the result was store in the JOB_OUTPUT_INFO.

The form is in Hex format, we used the function SCP_TRANSLATE_CHARS to convert to a text format.

We need also to include the logo in the mail, but not as attachment, so we used the ADD_BINARY_PART method instead of ADD_ATTACHMENT.

        Hellow Sir,

           I have created the SF with one simple table and send the email with SF in the email Body but the table which I can see in normal print preview of SF with all the data and table borders, that is not coming in the email body, only the table text are there without the table borders.

        There previous comment I have mention ‘header’  that is not the problem actually, borders are not coming.

    Hi, Frédéric.

    In the case ‘Send the Smartform in PDF attachment with a text message’,

    ‘First part, create the mail with the text message’, is it necessary to create another smartforms (‘ZMY_SMARTFORMS_002’), with the text message (Hello, Please the attachment …)?

        

    Or, is it possible “write” the text (e-mail body) in another way?

     

    Thanks
