I would like to share a different approach in sending an xls type document
using cl_bcs. This is a just a copy of
only that his post is to upload it in presentation server, so credits to the owner of that post.

The requirement was to make an attachment of xls type same as in ALV when we save
it into spreadsheet->Excel(in office 2007.....) Question is why this type? Because the sample
from BCS_EXAMPLE_7(the itab to binary in this example 7 is buggy) does not make the columns auto-fit, specially when end-users does not

want to click on the column in excel and resize the column.

Make a subroutine:

Important parameters here:

lt_binary_content → converted itab to binary

r_mail→ range type if email parameters are more than 1


FORM f_mail_send .

        lt_binary_content type solix_tab,
        lv_size TYPE so_obj_len,
        r_mail TYPE ace_generic_range_t,
