    Hi,

    The protect and endprotect command in sapscript doesn't work with smartforms. For example on a invoice: First data of position no 80. is printed on page one, other data of position no 80 is printed on page 2. And there's nothing you can do about it. Actually, there is something you can do about it. By using a folder node and checking the 'protect' checkbox, everything in that folder will be page protected.

    Reward points if u find useful.

    Regards,

    You use this node to combine inferior nodes to logical groups

    The more extensive a form, the less clear the node hierarchy in the tree structure. To avoid this, you can combine related nodes under a folder node. When displaying tables, you can use the folder node to protect multiple table lines against automatic page break (see: Page Protection for Tables).

    Nodes assigned to cells of a template can be identified more easily in the tree structure if there is a folder for each line or column.

    Depending on the length of time by which the last date for payment has been exceeded, each dunning letter should start with a different introduction. Create a text node containing the relevant dunning letter for each dunning level and specify conditions to print only one of the nodes. In this case, it is a good idea to group the different text nodes together in a folder.

    Procedure

    Create a node of type Folder in the navigation tree of the Form Builder.

    Enter a unique name for the node and a description (for example, cells of the third line).

    To assign other nodes to the folder, use Drag&Drop to put them in the folder node or insert new nodes as subnodes.

    On the Events tab, you can activate a header and a footer area. For more information, see Printing Tables.

    reward points if helpful..........

    hi,

    folder option allows u to place all the contents into a single place. this is useful when u have so many no.of windows and with each window u have different graphics, texts, tables, templates used so to differentiate b/w 2 windows we generally go for folders and place all contents of one window in a folder and wise versa.

    if helpful reward some points.

    with regards,

    Suresh Aluri.

    hi

    good

    A folder can be used for two purposes

    1. Page protection. like Prtect endprotect in scripts(so all come on one page)

    2. Logical grouping

    If u want to put a condition on a group of text elemnts u can put them in a floder

    and apply the condtion once to the folder

    By using a folder node and checking the 'protect' checkbox, everything in that folder will be page protected.

    thanks
