    Hi John Doo,

    A pdf is called a pdf, because it isn't that easy to chance a field at all. I do not think, that there is an option, that you can manipulate the created pdf.

    The last part of changing something is, if you got a smartform or a sapscript and you get acess to the OTF-Data. With this content you got some option to chance things. But with a binary-stringšŸ˜•

    The first high mountain in front is to make something readable out of the binaries.

    I'm sorry, but if you find a solution to this (in ABAP), please let me know.

    With a Webservice and Acrobat pro or something like that is that imagineable. So your option is, call a webservice.

    Good luck.
