Print, Save form in PDF Format from SAP

Hi,

The business users would like the ability to save, print a form, i.e. a Contract (VA42/43) in a PDF format. My understanding is, this feature/option is should be available through Goto menu through a feature/option PDF Display which opens the form in a PDF Viewer that allows the user to Print and Save the form in a PDF Format.


My question is what is required in SAP to make this feature/option available to an end user, is it a security role, a user parameter, a trigger of a function module...etc.....any help on this would be much appreciated

Thanks,

Sean

    Hello Sean,

    you can define local printer as PDF printer (e.g FREEPDF) and print your PDF forms to that printer.

    To be able to generate a form, you can create new printer:

    name: locl_pdf

    device type: PDF1

    Host spool access method: G - front end printing

    This locl_pdf printer will generate a pdf and send to your local printer which is setup for PDF saving.

    Hope it helps,

    Evgenij
