    Hello Zaiydu,

    1) Creation of HU :

    You can create HU in your costomizing code using the method - /scwm/if_pack~create_hu ,it can be coded as :

    CALL METHOD lo_wm_pack->/scwm/if_pack~create_hu


    iv_pmat = '' you need to provide the Package material ID

    i_location = : " you need to provide te location( LGPLA) of that HU


    es_huhdr = " this will provide you the new Handling Unit detail /


    error = 1

    OTHERS = 2.

    Now once you have done sucessfully , you have use the below method to save it :

    * Save into DB..

    CALL METHOD lo_wm_pack->/scwm/if_pack_bas~save


    iv_commit = space

    iv_wait = space


    error = 1

    OTHERS = 2.

    If this is done sucessfully put COMMIT WORK AND WAIT.

    Now you can get your new handling unit in structure - ES_HUHDR.

    2.) HU as a Barcode in Smartform:

    So you can use the above handling unit in your custom Smartform. To print as a Barcode you need to create a Style first and than using the format of that that style to print the HU as in barcode form. You can use the below link of creation & printing HU in barcode (its pretty simple )


    Stay Awesome

    Hi Zayidu,

    There are standard functionalities in EWM system which you can configure to get it, printing on HU label is controlled by Post Processing Framework (PPF) in EWM where in you can link it with smart form and at what point of time it should print.

    Read about PPF in EWM to get basic idea on how does PPF work. You need to have some basic understanding of such things only then the solution provided by experts will be much helpful to you.
