    hi

    Use the BOX command

    Syntax:

    /: BOX [XPOS] [YPOS] [WIDTH] [HEIGHT] [FRAME] [INTENSITY]

    Effect: draws a box of the specified size at the specified position.

    Parameters: For each parameter (XPOS, YPOS, WIDTH, HEIGHT and FRAME), both a measurement and a unit of measure must be specified. The INTENSITY parameter should be entered as a percentage between 0 and 100.

    •XPOS, YPOS: Upper left corner of the box, relative to the values of the POSITION command.

    Default: Values specified in the POSITION command.

    The following calculation is performed internally to determine the absolute output position of a box on the page:

    X(abs) = XORIGIN + XPOS

    Y(abs) = YORIGIN + YPOS

    WIDTH: Width of the box.

    Default: WIDTH value of the SIZE command.

    HEIGHT: Height of the box.

    Default: HEIGHT value of the SIZE command.

    FRAME: Thickness of frame.

    Default: 0 (no frame).

    INTENSITY: Grayscale of box contents as %.

    Default: 100 (full black)

    Measurements: Decimal numbers must be specified as literal values (like ABAP/4 numeric constants) by being enclosed in inverted commas. The period should be used as the decimal point character. See also the examples listed below.

    this is a very time consuming task. well, hope this will help you

      Hi Rajendra,

      You can fix the tab positions as like this

      first: 7.6cm

      second 9.0cm

      third 10.7cm

      fourth 13.0cm

      Regarding the boxes,code like this:

      BOX WIDTH 14 CM HEIGHT 10 CM FRAME 5 TW INTENSITY 1 "outline box

      BOX XPOS '7.6' CM YPOS 0 CM WIDTH 0 CM HEIGHT 5 CM FRAME 5 TW INTENSITY 1 " First vertical line

      BOX XPOS 9 CM YPOS 0 CM WIDTH 0 CM HEIGHT 5 CM FRAME 5 TW INTENSITY 1 "second vertical line

      BOX XPOS '10.7' CM YPOS 0 CM WIDTH 0 CM HEIGHT 5 CM FRAME 5 TW INTENSITY 1 "third vertical line

      BOX XPOS 0 CM YPOS 2 CM WIDTH 15 CM HEIGHT 0 CM FRAME 5 TW INTENSITY 1 first horizontal line

      I think this will create a complete box.

      You can loop the table and draw the remaining horizontal lines to create a table.

      Regards,

      SP.

    Hi

    THIS WILL BE SOME TIDIOUS JOB

    Please use the BOX command in Script for each of the levels i.e. 1 box for the header and 1 box each for the inner data levels ... after you have completed the formating portion i think the data display will have no problem

    Hope this helps

    Hi

    You can use the Tables option in the smartforms to achieve this. You can find the "details" button clicking which will take you to table properties. here you can define the size as per your requirement. Then using the table header, body and footer you can display the data as preferred.

    Cheers

    Hi Rajendra,

    Just create a another window (lets say BWIND) with same size of MAIN WINDOW and keept it behind MAIN WINDOW.

    Now, Draw the lines in the BWIND using following code.

    Dont create a text element for this window. Just write the code in the BWIND. You dont need to call this window using WRITE_FORM.

    /: BOX HEIGHT '1.7' LN INTENSITY 10

    /*

    /* The top line

    /: POSITION PAGE

    /: POSITION XORIGIN '2.0' CH YORIGIN '26.20' LN

    /: SIZE WIDTH '75.2' CH HEIGHT '0' LN

    /: BOX FRAME 10 TW

    /*

    /* The bottom line

    /: POSITION PAGE

    /: POSITION XORIGIN '2.0' CH YORIGIN '61.8' LN

    /: SIZE WIDTH '75.2' CH HEIGHT '0' LN

    /: BOX FRAME 10 TW

    /*

    /: POSITION PAGE

    /: POSITION XORIGIN '2.0' CH YORIGIN '26.20' LN

    /: SIZE WIDTH '0' CH HEIGHT '35.5' LN

    /: BOX FRAME 10 TW

    /*

    /: POSITION PAGE

    /: POSITION XORIGIN '77.20' CH YORIGIN '26.20' LN

    /: SIZE WIDTH '0' CH HEIGHT '35.5' LN

    /: BOX FRAME 10 TW

    Now, create text elemetns in the MAIN WINDOW to print your Header and Line Items.

    You can use TAB positions in the paragraph format to print data exactly on a particular position.

    regards,

    ram
