We recently implemented SAP Financial and are having our AP staff scan physical invoices into PDF files and attach them to the AP Document in SAP through the "Services for Object" menu.
I identified that these files are stored in SOFFCONT1 with SOOD having file attribute information, however I need to find a way that I can just directly retrieve the files from SQL Server (where our SAP db resides). I've worked with binary data types in the past and using ASP.NET to retreive the file for the client to download, however it seems like SAP is storing these files in an odd format and splitting them up in 32,000 byte chunks in the CLUSTD file in hexcode.
Where do I start to even try and interpert how they are doing things here and how I can retreive these files?
My ultimate goal is to have a web portal for our clients to log in to and view expense data with the option of downloading the PDF files associated to them.
