I have a requirement where in I need to create interactive form, where using can input data on it, and save it to a custom table. So to say, it is like an online interactive form.

So far I have found some documentations/blogs related to this, but most of them are saying about interactive form with web dynpro.

My question is, is it possible to create such requirement not using web dynpro for an online interactive form?

The form will capture your data....and can be "interactive" with scripts and so forth......let's call that step 1........step 3, you want to save the data to some backend custom table.......therefore, there has to be some "Step 2" in between to "broker" the data to your table.......most often this is done with WebDynpro ABAP by "mapping" the form's context to the WDA context and then from the WDA, simply use ABAP to insert into your table......soooooooo how are you planning to make step 2 happen otherwise? You could get fancy and have PI (aka. XI) to "capture" the document but you still have to map it to where you want it to go...which likely means some ABAP still....and likely that is a LOT of overkill for your requirment. Otherwsie, I am not sure what your idea is to make this "magic" happen between form and custom table.

Hi Cristopher,

Thanks for your reply.

I am also reading about "web service" that can be use as a data "broker". Is that possible for online interactive form ?

I just found in the system where I am working with, there is existing program that can do something like this, but the programmer had left long time ago.

So, when I put a break point in the back end function module, and I tried to post a data, it stopped me at that break point.

I tried to create the same, but it is working only for offline interactive form, meaning, I need to save the PDF form first to my local folder, then from there I post a data, end it was working fine. But it is not working when I tried to run my program, and post data online.

Any idea about this ?
