Link Generic Object Service (GOS) Documents in SAP through Object Services

In this Article
    In this article we’ll show you how to link Generic Object Service (GOS) documents in SAP over Object Services with a business object.

    SAP offers the storage of documents (incoming invoices, shipping notices, order confirmations, quality certificates, etc.) through Object Services for many business objects (purchase orders, production orders, maintenance orders, invoices, etc.). Object Services are always found in the same place in the SAP GUI. Here we show you the position by using a production order:

    Basically, there are two different ways in SAP for storing through Object Services:

    1. GOS documents (Generic Object Services)
    2. BDS -documents
