Read data from attachment List
Normally, we use READ_TEXT to read data text from header or item. But in some case, specially in Fiori app, text data will be saved in attachment list.
So, how to read data from attachment List?
Don’t worry, I will show you step by step to get data by using abap program
2.Check data in SAP
Suppose we have a FI document as follows
and I created note in attachment list
Please note that: If you want create new note in attachment list, please click create.
Then, you can see note is displayed as below, it includes title and content
You can check data in table SRGBTBREL.
Because this is FI document, so Object Type is BKPF, and we are using note in attachment list, Ref Type is Note as well.
Instance ID is follow by format: <Company Code> + <Document_ID> + <Fiscal Year>
We will use function module SO_DOCUMENT_READ_API1 to get data from attachment list
*Declare data TYPES: BEGIN OF TY_LINE, INSTID_B TYPE SOFOLENTI1-DOC_ID, END OF TY_LINE. DATA: L_DATA TYPE SOFOLENTI1, L_TEXT TYPE SO_TEXT255, L_TBL_LINE TYPE TABLE OF TY_LINE, L_DOCID TYPE SOFOLENTI1-DOC_ID, LT_CONTENT TYPE TABLE OF SOLISTI1. FIELD-SYMBOLS: <L_WA_TEXT> TYPE TY_LINE, <LS_CONTENT> TYPE SOLISTI1. *fetch data from SRGBTBREL SELECT INSTID_B FROM SRGBTBREL WHERE TYPEID_A = 'BKPF' AND RELTYPE = 'NOTE' AND INSTID_A = 'C00101000000102021' AND CATID_A = 'BO' INTO TABLE @L_TBL_LINE UP TO 1 ROWS. LOOP AT L_TBL_LINE ASSIGNING <L_WA_TEXT>. L_DOCID = <L_WA_TEXT>-INSTID_B. ENDLOOP. *call function to get text CALL FUNCTION 'SO_DOCUMENT_READ_API1' EXPORTING DOCUMENT_ID = L_DOCID " ID of folder entry to be viewed IMPORTING DOCUMENT_DATA = L_DATA TABLES OBJECT_CONTENT = LT_CONTENT " Document Content EXCEPTIONS DOCUMENT_ID_NOT_EXIST = 1 " Specified folder entry does not exist OPERATION_NO_AUTHORIZATION = 2 " No authorization to view folder entry X_ERROR = 3 " Internal error or database inconsistency OTHERS = 4. IF SY-SUBRC = 0. WRITE:'TITLE IS: ', L_DATA-obj_descr,/. WRITE:'CONTENT IS: '. LOOP AT LT_CONTENT ASSIGNING <LS_CONTENT>. L_TEXT = <LS_CONTENT>-LINE. WRITE:L_TEXT,/. ENDLOOP. ENDIF.
