Positioning text in SAPscript

Hello, is there any possibilities to positioning text in a SAPscript. I would like to determine x and y coordinates where to start the writing out. It is working in the case of boxes, but what if I want to write normal text to a certain position. How could I do that?

    Hi,

    Follow the below mentioned steps.

    1. Create a Paragraph. (This step is not mandatory).

    2. Provide the indents to the paragraph.

    3. Provide the margins.

    now use the paragraph to display the text.

    if you need certain format for the text elements...you can also provide Tab.

    3. create Tab positions. Provide the spacing between different texts.

    Regards,

    Vara

    Hi Jakob,

    Yes, You can position text in a SAP Script using <b>POSITION</b> command by specifying its attributes like X Origin, Y Origin and Window.

    You can ONLY position texts with in Windows only.

    Syntax:

    <b>/: POSITION [X Origin] [Y Origin] [Window] [Page]</b>

    X & Y - Sets the origin for x 7 y parameters for the box command.

    Window - Sets the default values for the left and upper edges.

    Pages - Sets the values for the left and upper edges of the current page.

    Basically used to set default setting for the box command.

    /: Position x Origin ‘1.5’ cm y origin ‘1’ cm

    Thanks,

    Vinay
