Smartform spool appending for Pay1/Pay2

Hi Experts,

My development of Payslips smartform is done, its all working fine and form has been generated.

Here is some issues for spool generation:

First time I run the program (batchjob) for 2 employees, I get 2 pages one for each employee, as expected.


When I again run the same program for 3 employees, 3 pages are added (appending) to the same spool request.

My requirement is to create a new spool when the program is executed for the next time.

I have tried setting NO_OPEN and NO_CLOSE in control parameters and also

I have tried with several output option settings. I have also tried using FMs SSF_OPEN and SSF_CLOSE. But no luck so far.

Please guide me any experts how to avoid appending the spool files thru program or any standard settings.

I found some references also:

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Freinds.

    I have resolved the issue myself.


    I have assigned the Unique Title for Pay1 and Pay2 in the tdcovtitle like below.

        IF rb_pays EQ c_chk.
        l_output_options-tdcovtitle = 'PAY1'.
        l_output_options-tdcovtitle = 'PAY2'.

    Thanks for everyone.

    Have you set the output_options field tdnewid for the function module in which you are calling for the smartform?  It should create a new spool request if you have tdnewid = 'X'.

    • Hi Tamara,

      Thanks for your reply.

      Yes. i have set the o/p options. In this case it will create the new spoll file for each and every forms for single run.

      If i have 2 Pay it will create 2 spools for each run.

      My req is : 1 st run  - if 2 form is one spool.

                       2 nd run - if 3 forms for seperate spool.
