Email office 2007 document (.docx)

Former Member

I have written a program than sends a mail with a number of attachments.

I use the FM SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1 for this.

But when it's an Office 2007 document, with docx as extension, the document will give errors.

Does anybody has had this problem before?

I have tried the same thing using the CL_BCS class, but the problem remains.

I think the issue is that when you have to declare the attachment type, you only have 3 characters.

I'm on a ecc 6.0 system btw

Hi Andy,

We also face the same problem.

Please let us know if you got a solution.

Use RAW, that's all. Note that it can be any format (your issue is not related to .docx). Check this wiki: []
