    Chanukya,

    SmartForms are Client Independent because when you activate them you are actually generating a Function Module. This means that the Print Programs actually call a FM instead of using the "OPEN_FORM", "WRITE_FORM" etc FM's that SAPscript use.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Pat.

    hi,

    In smartforms the function module will be generated once you done the activation. that single function module is used to integrate smartform to application program. this is the feature it become client independent.

    Hello Gurus,

    Smartforms is client independant because SAP has decided / designed it that way . Other things like generated Function are because of the design only . SAP Scripts are client dependant again because of design. We should ask this question to the designers / architects in SAP .

    Cheers
