W-2 changing to blank stock

We are currently using printed self sealer stock to print our W-2. We are also using a custom SAPScript form. We have a requirement from our Business Owner to change to a blank stock and have SAP print the background on the form. After reading note 1547853, I have located the SSBI switch and have changed it to blank. However, the printout still does not contain the background. I have also made changes to UTRW2 and UTXPR features and have change the form to the delivered SAP self sealer form ( HR_F_W2_MULT_SS). In addition I have change the following tables V_T5UX7 and V_51T5_B. However, now when I try to run last year's W-2 using PU19, I am not getting a W-2 form in either the PDF forms generated or SAPScript Forms generated.

Has anyone out there converted from SAPScript to a PDF form for W-2 and used the blank paper stock instead of the pre-printed forms? I think I must be forgetting a step but cannot resolve.

Hoping someone can help!

    Hi Sherrye,

    We did exactly what you're doing now. In addition to note 1547853, the instructions in note 1514526 calls for setting SSBI switch (SSBI text field) to X. But actually, I went in the code and saw that the code is expecting the value 'SSBI' instead of X so change this parameter again and see what happens.

    As far as your last year's form is concerned, I don't think it's a good idea to print both Script and PDF forms for the years that have already been printed. We have a cutoff date for Script after which everything gets converted to PDF.
