My research about how attachment data is stored in cluster table:
System AG3/001, Product: ZJERRYTEST1124, upload one text attachment with 58 bytes.
Click the hyperlink "result1" in column Name, the file is opened in browser via the link below:
use transaction code SE16 to query database table with PHIO_ID = FA163EEF573D1ED49DA44708EF3ABF63:
and two entries found:
execute FM SCMS_R3DB_IMPORT in test mode, specify CREP_ID = BDS_DB22 and DOC_ID = FA163EEF573D1ED49DA44708EF3ABF63
binary content of uploaded attachment could be found in CONTENT_BIN:
the content returned by FM is actually exactly the same compared with the binary data of the local file:
How does this FM actually finish data retrieve task?
Just execute the following code in AG3:
DATA: phio_cluster TYPE scmst_r3db_cont_cluster.
IMPORT phio_cluster FROM DATABASE bdscont22(ir) CLIENT sy-mandt
ID 'FA163EEF573D1ED49DA44708EF3ABF63' IGNORING CONVERSION ERRORS.
The content will be stored in variable phio_cluster.
What does bdscont22(ir) mean?
Open table BDSCONT22 in SE11, the highlighted three fields are cluster fields:
Please refer to ABAP help for more detail about cluster table:
in our example, we could get the region ID IR which will be used in the test ABAP program.
