Error in Interactive form

Trying to explore interactive forms on ECC 5.0 as very new to this field.

Used T-code 'SFP' to view the standard Form 'MEDRUCK_PO'.

When executing, during print previw provided the the default printer name in out put device but got following Error message

"Device type unsuitable for ADS documents"

Further function module gave message

'Cannot find PDL type for output device '.

what could be the reason do i have to do some settings for output device.

Checked SPAD also

Sapscript Handling : SWIN

check box : Page printer is ticked

Printer Deriver : Do not print ABAP lits

Kindly resolve

    SAPWIN type devices can not be used in combination with Adobe Forms.

    Please check note:


    It describes what type of printers can be used.

    hi all

    im also facing the same problem as above.

    ive read the sap note and did the following.

    1. went to se38 and ran report RSPO0022.

    2. in the o/p screen: activity to be performed -> Create/change XDC entry

    SAP Device Type->HPPCL5E.

    3. F8

    4. Open filename ->hppcl5e.xdc (from the Adobe folder)

    5. asks to create a new transport request. which i did.

    6. go back to SFP and Execute. Gave printer name as HPPCL5E. but error says: Device HPPCL5E doesnot exist.

    am i missing anythin here guys??

    pls suggest.
