I´m using the function CONVERT_OTFSPOOLJOB_2_PDF to get the sppoljob, created by sapscript

in a pdf.

When I´m using the function GUI_DOWNLOAD afterwards, to get the pdf on my workstation, I´m using

the option 'BIN' and the filsize (got it from the function CONVERT_OTFSPOOLJOB_2_PDF).

I have the pdf now on my workstation and it´s working fine. but now my question...

I can see, that I have the whole pdf data in a string before using the GUI_DOWNLOAD function. That

means, that the data is not binary, it is in ASCII format, right? But when I´m using the function GUI_DOWNLOAD

in BIN mode then, is it going to be converted to binary and then written to a file? Because when I´m using the

GUI_DOWNLOAD in ASCII mode without filesize, it is not working. I can´t open the PDF afterwards...

the reason, why I´m asking: I want to use all this in a function, giving back the PDF value as binary in an exporting

parameter. So do I have to convert my pdf data, getting from CONVERT_OTFSPOOLJOB_2_PDF to binary? And how

do I have to do that?

thank you!
