Adobe Forms Printout as E-Mail

378 Views Last edit Jul 12, 2019 at 01:36 PM 2 rev


we started with SAP Adobe Forms. Everything work fine still our users try to use an older technique they know from SAP-Script and Smartforms to get the printouts by E-Mail with PDF Attachment.

If they need forms as PDF they use the printer ZMAIL. That printer uses Device Type PDF1 (or in our case ZPDF1) and makes it possible to get the printout as PDF-Form. Moreover the printer ZMAIL uses Host Spool Access Method M => E-Mail to Receiver/Owner. So if they use ZMAIL as printer they got the printout as E-Mail with the form as PDF attachment.

Now they want to use printer ZMAIL (PDF as MAIL) when they print out Adobe forms but they didn't get an E-Mail with attachment. In output controll, the PDF is visibel but there is an error.

The Error Message: Device ZMAIL in system .... does not support format G_RAW.

How can i solve it. How is it possible to send adobe forms created PDF's dircetly by E-Mail to the Receiver/Owner.

Full Message information: Device ZMAIL in system .... does not support format G_RAW.


The format type you specified in not defined for the device type of the target printer.


Choose a different format type or define the missing format type. Use the "Possible entries" function to display a list of the defined format types.

How can i define the missing format type for my device type of the target printer: PDF1?
