Send File to SAP as Attachment

Has anyone successfully tried to send a file to SAP?

We are using an RFC to create a Sales Order and need to attach supporting documents as part of the integration. 

We can get a PDF created, but it's corrupted in SAP - basically not getting the right conversion of data as we send it.


SAP developer wants us to submit base64 encoded string to his data type of XSTRING.  Boomi support/engineering has concluded this is not currently a supported method.  As you import the SAP profile from the RFC, only fields associated with character, numeric, and datetime show up.  I can add the XSTRING field manually, but have to give it a character data type. 


Have tried XSD to load custom XML schema - no luck - could be an issue with Not supporting SAP Complex Data Types


So, I'm now headed down the path of trying to setup a web service in SAP and calling that.  Anyone tried this for a situation like this with any success?
