      no problem in sharing stuff ....here it is ....

      any sap help typically has frameset..... left one has nodes and right one has contents of the selected node....

      view the source code of the left frameset which shows javascript function "addnode"and this function has sub-url of invidual page .... sub-url has to be appended to main url to form complete url....

      copy the whole source code of left frame to ur desktop....

      through any document editing software where you can write simple macros , prepare another file having just sub-urls.... transfer it to excel and append to main url through simple excel macro....with this action one can have all nodes' URLs.....

      now at this point i need to extract/download individual URL's contents to desktop.....for which i used Grab-A-Site software which can take a text file of URLs and downloads the contents to ur desktop..... now select all the files and right-click and print it away ......

      ABOVE LOGIC EXPLAINED WITH PI 7.0 LOGIC

      PI 7.0 Main URL in sap help is

      http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04s/helpdata/en/0f/80243b4a66ae0ce10000000a11402f/frameset.htm

      source code of left frame will have many javascript calls like following

      parent.gMenu.Add(false,"Implementation Considerations","e0/a0793c4522564ee10000000a11405a/content.htm",1,"",0,"e0a0793c4522564ee10000000a11405a");

      of which 3rd parameter is sub-url.... after close observation of the main pi 7.0 help url, u could see the pattern of main & sub-urls and i found main url as

      http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04s/helpdata/en/

      so if we concatenate these two urls , it gives http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04s/helpdata/en/e0/a0793c4522564ee10000000a11405a/content.htm which is nothing but the link for "Implementation Considerations" node of PI 7.0 ....

      For extracting all sub-urls , i used PFE software which is always my favourite document editing software......

      hope this helps......

      happy printing.......
