How to use Adobe forms/smartforms with F.17 (Balance Confirmation)

Hi all,

I want to use Adobe or Smartforms with the transaction F.17 (or F.17P)

How do I add the form in the customizing? I checked in SPRO -> Financial Accounting(new) -> Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable -> Business Transaction -> Closing -> Count-> Balance Confirmation Correspondence -> Make and check Settings for Correspondence -> Define Form names for Correspondence Print. There I found the program SAPF130D with the standard form F130_CONFIRM_01 (sapscript form).

I tried to add a new line -> SAPF130_PDF and the new Adobe or Smartform for Balance Confirmation but I receive error messages.

I checked SAPFI130D_PDF report (which prints PDF) and also the transaction F.17P but I still don't know how to add a non-sapscript form in the customizing.

My problem is the same as with the dunning (f150) : How to use Adobe forms with F150 Dunning Run | SCN

I used this thread to solve the dunning adobe form issue and it worked.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thank you,

    Hi Laura,

    Could you please let us know what error you are getting? Have you tried using a different Form ID for your entry? Here in my sandbox system, there are 4 definitions for SAPF130D and each one of them have a different form ID. For example,

    SAPF130D Customer Balance Confirmation <blank form id> F130_CONFIRM_01

    SAPF130D Customer Balance Confirmation ER F130_ERROR_01

    • Hi Sowbhagya,

      In "Define form names for Correspondence print" : I try to add a new entry

      Company code : specific company code

      Program : SAPF130D_PDF

      Fo.ID: I leave it empty

      Form : the custom adobe form.

      I get error message: Specify the key within the work area

      to mention that the form field has f4 input, and when I click it, it takes me to SAPSCRIPT form tree.

      But I want to use Adobe form and not sapscript.

      Many thanks,
