    check the language that is assigned to the Outputtype and the Language maintained for the Records

    go to printpreview and type- PDF! check the how the output is displayed

    Hello Vikram,

    this issue usually happens when not an Adobe form is used but a SAPScript / SmartForm is converted to PDF.

    Please check whether a converted SAPScript / SmartForm is used in this case.

    If yes, and if you have a Unicode system, go to transaction SE38, run report RSTXPDF3, execute the option "List Settings", and enable parameter USE_CASCADING.

    See SAP Note #1704919 - "Cascading PDF conversion for non-cascading device types" for details.

    Also, this solution needs True Type fonts to be uploaded.

    See (the attachment of) SAP Note #999712 - "PDF conversion for Unicode" for details.

    Best regards,
