    This would give you a clear idea, i feel.

    The tool transfer only the objects of sapscript (Pages, Windows, Text elements,.....), so after migration you have to insert all ABAP codes, you need and should find in the program drives the sapscript, by yourself.

    Once the SAPscripts are converted, whether in Smart Forms or Smart Styles, you should clean up any errors made during the conversion process, in terms of attributes, window alignment, or syntax errors. Cleaning up errors during conversion is often standard procedure, as SAPscript might have used local logic. Errors may occur when a field displayed is extracted or manipulated to display and doesn’t exist, or fields exist but appear with no values. Errors may also arise in ABAP syntax.


    Migrating a SAPscript form</b>

    1. Go to the SAP Smart Forms initial screen (transaction SMARTFORMS).

    2. In the Form field enter the name of the Smart Form you want to create.

    3. Choose Utilities &#61614; Migrate SAPscript form.

    The dialog window Migrate SAPscript Form appears.

    4. Enter the name and the language of the source form (SAPscript).

    5. Choose Enter.

    This takes you to the change mode of the SAP Form Builder.

    If the selected SAPscript form does not exist in the selected language, a dialog window appears on which you can select one of the existing languages.

    6. Now change the design of the form and of the form logic. To activate the Smart Form choose Activate.

    <b>Converting a SAPscript style</b>

    1. Go to the Smart Styles inital screen (transaction SMARTSTYLES).

    2. In the Style name field enter the name of the Smart Style you want to create.

    3. Choose Smart Styles &#61614; Convert SAPscript style.

    4. Enter the name of the SAPscript style you want to convert.

    5. Choose Enter.

    A list of the converted styles appears.

    6. Choose Back. You can now change the Smart Style (Change).To activate the Smart Style choose Activate.

    <b>Mass Migration of SAPscript Forms</b>

    1. In Reporting select the program SF_MIGRATE and execute it.

    2. Select the names and the language of the SAPscript forms and choose Execute. The system creates the Smart Forms under the names of the SAPscript forms plus the extension _SF.

    It displays a list of the migrated forms.

    3. To change and adapt a form, go to transaction SMARTFORMS. Then activate the changed Smart Form.

    Feel Free to revert Back.
