Hi,

When an user clicks on a document display link in a SAP tranasction(for example FB02),an URL has to be called in the background(by ABAP) and the details of the URL should be displayed in a browser.

What are the possilbe options available in SAP4.7 to meet the above requirement?

Thanks in advance,

Leo

hi,

you can use call browser function

data url(200) type c.

url = 'your_url'.

CALL FUNCTION 'CALL_BROWSER'

EXPORTING

URL = url

  • WINDOW_NAME = ' '

  • NEW_WINDOW = ' '

  • BROWSER_TYPE =

  • CONTEXTSTRING =

  • EXCEPTIONS

  • FRONTEND_NOT_SUPPORTED = 1

  • FRONTEND_ERROR = 2

  • PROG_NOT_FOUND = 3

  • NO_BATCH = 4

  • UNSPECIFIED_ERROR = 5

  • OTHERS = 6

.

IF SY-SUBRC <> 0.

  • MESSAGE ID SY-MSGID TYPE SY-MSGTY NUMBER SY-MSGNO

  • WITH SY-MSGV1 SY-MSGV2 SY-MSGV3 SY-MSGV4.

ENDIF.

for this you have to enable SSO on your server.

hope this helps you, else revert back.
