    Hi Ramya,

    Once you read the completed offline adobe form,  Follow below steps

    1. Convert PDF document to XML form.

    2. Using XML document, extract nodes of it using steps in below thread.   (Fields on form should be binded with some variable, else, they cannot be read)

    3.  Once all data and nodes are in table, populate into appropriate structures and then using required function modules, create a material.

    Another approach is,  you could try implementing MDG for material master creation.  this is latest approach, where more people are using to maintain master data.  There are few demos in below link, you could go through it.   This approach make take some time to setup initially, but it has a lot of options to take care of most of situations.  In adobe form approach, you may have to implement them all manually.
