What exactly the differnce between Adobe Interactive and Print Form in technical point of view.

Dear Gurus,

                Could anybody help me out to find out what exactly the technical difference between the Adobe interactive and print forms.

Suppose I have interactive offline forms I want to convert it to normal adobe form(static/print etc). what should I do technically . As iI have compared both interactive form as well as print form the Layout type is same i.e. ZCI Layout. the report FP_AUDIT_TEST_EXT should not fetch the form as interactive form.Please help me out.

Thanks & Regards,

Suman Kumar

    For a developer there are a few differences. For example some fields (like the text field) are interactive and allow the user to enter or modify data and some events only fire for interactive PDF forms.

    For the runtime, the major difference is that for an interactive PDF the PDF is a shell that contains all the information like the template or data. For print output there are two options either a flat PDF (doesn't contain template, etc) or the PDL for the supported various printers.

    For example, when you create a print program there is a parameter that tells ADS that the PDF output should be an interactive PDF:

    gs_docparams-fillable = abap_true.

    You can render the same template & data with this parameter set to true and false and get an interactive PDF and a flat print PDF.

    • Hi Juergen,

                      We were analysing the licensing data for adobe interactive forms, That's the reason we are curious about understanding the fetching condition being used by SAP.

      Thanks a lot for your support. Answered.closing this thread.
