SAPConnect: Email with Formatting

By | September 15, 2008 | Formatting | 6,905 | 1

Sometimes, it is necessary to send emails with the Formatting when we are sending the email using SAPConnect.

Formatting is necessary to display proper information. For example, Information is formatted repesentation of the Data. If no formatting, no information. Same way, if we send the unformatted contents, than it will make wrong impression.

In ABAP also, using the SAPConnect function modules we can send the highly formatted contents in the Message body. For this purpose, we need to use HTML. HTML will represent our data in the formatted way on receipient side.

While filling up the Body of the message (CONTENTS_TXT), we fill it up with the HTML code. After filling up the content, we need to tell the system that we are sending the HTML data instead of the pure text. Generally, we specify the DOC_TYPE in PACKING_LIST as the TEXT. But for this purpose, we will pass HTML since our data is in HTML. Than we will pass all the information to the Function Module SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1.
