I need to download pdf spool with more than 9000 pages

Hi forum

I have a spool with more than 90000 pages which was converted to a .PDF file running the program RSTXPDFT4, I want to download it to my computer, Then download the contents of that new spool request with report RSTXPDFT5 but whitout success because the number of pages is more than 90000. Please how can I download this second spool? Thank you very much

  • Melania,

    Out of Curiosity....

    9000 or 90000 pages makes me wonder what kind of document is that,that is getting created in SPOOL from SAP.

    Are you working on any IS Module related to Printing and Publishing ?

  • What useful purpose can a 90000 page document possibly serve.

    But in any case we need to know what happens when you try to download it. "Without success" isn't really very explanatory.

  • The download of a binary file (your PDF) is not sensitive to the "number of pages" , so could you please explain why you say "[download] without success because the number of pages is more than 90000" ? Did RSTXPDFT4 generate a spool request containing a binary PDF part ? Did you check the SAP notes ?

    Have you tried output device LOCL then choose PDF Printer like "Microsoft Print to PDF" or "Nitro PDF Creator".

      BTW, what error causing the program RSTXPDFT5 to terminate, is it relating to a run time error? You can try to run the standard program RSTXPDFT4 and RSTXPDFT5 via background job.

      Please give more details what exactly was your error, I have tried program RSTXPDFT5 on my purchase order which contain only 1 pages and the PDF file is not readable using adobe acrobat. The program RSTXPDFT4 work fine for me on both foreground and background job.

    Is RSTXPDFT5 timing out? Might you can copy RSTXPDFT5 into a new program and change it to write to the application server and later download it from there. I know it could be a one time event, but just letting you if there is no other option you could find.

    We solved a similar problem by downloading the spool as text directly from SP01 -> Spool Request -> Forward -> Export as Text

    Don't know if this is an option ...
