Hi Balajee,

Additional note to what kamala says.

The best thing to do is to maintain the settings prescribed for DMS as per sap note:1091699

You can use the utility program RC14SXDVSCHECK to check the most important DMS functions that are used by EH&S. if there is any error, check the DMS system and correct the settings.

Hi Balajee,

If you are dealing with the "Archive link" to store your documents, these kind of errors could be possible.

for the same, check the configuration in below path -

SPRO > Environment, Health & Safety > Basic data and tools > Tools > Document Storage > EH&S Archive link > Assign EH&S documents types to Data carriers.

Here, if you find the data carrier other than "SAP-SYSTEM", for any of the documents especially - DBE, DBV, SBE, SBR, SBV, etc.,

If you have possibility to change the settings to "SAP-SYSTEM", in your development or sand box systems, try to do and test again. In this case you have a possibility to come out of the error, as the documents are getting stored in SAP SYSTEM instead of Archive link.

Reason -

while generating the preview, program expects one more document no. other than existing. but here for both the documents a single No. available. so the document cannot be read.

If you would like to continue with Archive-link, you have to implement the SAP NOTE - 1022497

check the possibilities, and take an action.

Dear Balajeep

what is your scenario:

"error while previewing the report."

a.) report from template?

b.) using report layouting?

c.) create report?

The value file is generated by SAP and dispateched to local WWI or generation server.

After generation if value file he WWI process is started and the report is created. Later the report is passed back (e.g. create report) to be store in SAP DMS

The error could indicate may be that

1.) either SAP authorizaitons are missing

2.) Windows authorizations are missing

Does this effect happen only with this layout/generationvariant? only on your local client?


PS: may be close your parallel thread:

Hi Balajee,

If the data carrier is maintained as "SAP-SYSTEM", not required to look after any note related to archive link.

whenever you create a template, that will create a document no. in DMS. As mentioned by christoph, for creating document no. program checks for authorizations and also to edit the existing document.

It is cross integrated with DMS, SAP and WWI server. check with the administration team, if you have proper authorizations in this entire activity by taking out the trace. and also check and ensure the RFC connections are working in proper.
