    SAPscript technology is based on a mainframe product from the 1980s, while Smart Forms have only been around since (roughly) 2001. With that sort of time gap, there are bound to be significant differences between the two tools. Client dependence is a fundamental one. Although SAPscript has had some incremental improvements over time, its forms have always been -- under the hood -- relatively ...

    So Script is designed such that it accepts only .tiff fiels unlike smartforms

    UOM CM

    Line width for text 132


    Text ID ST

    Text language = E

    Number of Tiff gray levels (2,4,9) 2

    3. Then Create a new window 'COMP' with attributes;

    Window COMP description Company Logo

    Left margin 7.00 CH window width 10.00 CH

    Upper margin LN window height 8.00 LN

    Finally in the text element, mention

    You will not be able to see the logo in a test print. The same will be printed in actual printout.
