Printing in Background Mode

I am trying to Print MS Word documents from DMS when like a Production Order is released. It is understood that Adobe Service is required for Adobe file printing to accomplish this, however, is there a method to Print Microsoft documents in Background mode.

    Hi Brad,

    Standard SAP doesn't support this. We had a similar problem with our maintenance order work papers, but in PM there is a configuration setting which allows you to do the printing portion in dialog mode. SAP recommends that this isn't switched on in production due to performance and the fact that you will get printouts even if the update task fails, but it hasn't caused us any issues so far - touch wood!

    I found a SAP note 810025 which discusses a third party solution - the External Document Converter (XDC) interface which may be worth investigating further. I don't have any experience with it and have no idea how much it costs, but it doesn't hurt to look....

    Good luck.

    If you get a result, post an update as I'm sure this is a problem many sites grapple with.

    Regards,

    Monika
