Hi KS,

With the help of WWI Compression, you can compress documents during report generation thus can reduce the load on your database.

it is also possible to compress already generated reports subsequently.

If you want to display the compressed documents in Document Management, in Customizing for Document Management under Define Workstation Application you must make the entry wwiexe32.exe for the workstation application WWI under Define workstation application in network.

Also please refer to below help link

HI May,

Run the Report RC14SXDVSCHECK in SE38. You will come to know the status of your document types.If everything in green, no issues and working fine.

Anything in Red, then you have to make them into green.

Most of the times, will arise the problems with DMS - Document storage.

Check in config. How your document types assigned to Data carriers.

SPRO > EH&S > Basic Data and Tools > Tools > Document Storage > EH&S Archive Link > Specify Data Carriers

SPRO > EH&S > Basic Data and Tools > Tools > Document Storage > EH&S Archive Link > Assign EH&S Document types to Data Carriers

SPRO > Cross-Application Components > Document Management > General Data > Define Work Station Applicaiton.
