DI: Importing an order from a XML-document

Former Member

I've got a problem with importing an order from a xml document. The document was exported by the savexml method and now I want to reimport it. But I only can get the first line of the order whether there two more lines in it. When I am running my program, it enters the first line and than it stops with the following error:

<b><i>An unhandled exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' occurred in XML enter.exe

Additional information: Exception from HRESULT: 0xFFFFFC16.</i></b>

The source code is the following:

Dim vCmp As SAPbobsCOM.Company

Dim nResult As Long, i As Long, ii As Long

Thank's for your help. Now it works almost perfect.

There are only two fields in the order table after entering an order from xml which I can't understand.

These fields are DiscSumSy and RoundDifSy. In the data record I entered with the SAP BO client they have got no value. If I enter the same order from a xml document, these fields receive values I can't explain. Do you know what these two fields are for and why there is a value whether I didn't enter one??

Perhaps you can help me with this problem too.

Hi Dennis,

ASFAIK those fields are for (SC = system currency)

DiscSumSy "Total Discount (SC)"

RoundDifSy "Rounding Diff. Amount (SC)"

I think the values are calculated automatically when you add an order.

And hopefully they are recalculated even in your case when you create the order from a XML-document...

Could this be the answer to your question?

Hi Dennis,

please note that your new object comes up with one empty line (as any new object that has got "lines" in SBO).

That's why your approach works for line no. 0.

If you want to have a second line you must "Add" it before filling it!

best regards,
