    hi Deva,

    Check these threads ...

    In daily operations, companies of all sizes depend on formal documents that reflect their corporate identities and contain critical business information from live systems. SAP and Adobe partnered with the goal of automating and streamlining forms-based communication to support customers who create reusable forms for their business processes. The result of this partnership is <b>SAP Interactive Forms by Adobe.</b>

    Hi,

    Adobe forms are coming up with the next version of SAP release.

    Basically Adobe form are designed using 'Adobe Live Cycle Designer 6.0/7.0'. SAP has included this into next release and created a trasaction called 'SFP' from which you can design the forms(both static & interactive).

    Hi,

    PDF-Based Print Forms

    Purpose

    PDF-based print forms are part of the Interactive Forms based on Adobe Software solution and are used for mass printing in SAP systems. As well as standard output on printers, and the option of archiving documents, you can also use your application to send a PDF to the Business Communication Services (BCS). Here, you have the option of faxing or e-mailing your documents.

    The following gives you an overview of how a PDF-based print form is structured, and also tells you how to create a PDF-based print form in the development environment of the ABAP Workbench. The integrated Adobe LiveCycle Designer software supports you when you do this. This software must be installed on your front end before you can create a layout. To see a print preview of your form, you first need to install Adobe Reader or a complete version of Adobe Acrobat.

    This documentation does not discuss how documents are printed and controlled on printers. Instead, it discusses the whole process up to when a file is sent to output management functions, such as the spool system in SAP systems (for more information, see SAP Printing Guide (BC-CCM-PRN)).

    Interactive Forms based on Adobe Software

    Purpose

    As of SAP NetWeaver ’04 (in SAP Web Application Server), you can use a new solution to create interactive forms and print forms for the optimization of your form-based business processes. This solution uses Portable Document Format (PDF) and software from Adobe Systems Inc. that has been integrated into the SAP environment.

    You can create interactive forms in PDF format that allow users to fill out the form on the screen and save their entries in XML format in the form. When the SAP system receives the PDF form, it extracts the data saved in the form, and can process it further.

    You can also merge a form template with current system data to generate a PDF document that can then be printed or sent by e-mail.

    Interactive Forms based on Adobe software offer you the following business advantages:

    · Interactive functions automate the creation of data for SAP systems

    · Full integration into the SAP development environments for Java and ABAP

    · User-friendly tools reduce the time and costs associated with creating form layouts.

    · The usage of the PDF format means that forms retain their appearance regardless of the environment they are used in.

    In certain circumstances, you require a license for interactive forms. For more detailed information, read SAP Note 750784 on SAP Service Marketplace at service.sap.com/notes.

    There is a good forum named

    "SAP Interactive Forms by Adobe"

    in SDN.
