i've one question from an interview that it is not mandatory to give open-group and close-group for a sapscript. but according to my knowledge open-group and close-group are mandatory. What do you people think about this?

    hi srk,

    the open_form & close_form are mandatory. because unless you specify the script name, how the driver program know, which script to be runned?

    in the open_form parameters we will give our script name. then with that name it runs the driver program. when open_form is executed, the script of given name will be opened, then through write_form we will pass the values through text elements.

    so, hope u understood the purpose n functionality of open_form.

    coming to start_form & end_form:

    let us take a case in my script i have 5 pages.

    first page contains my company name

    second contains my name as i designed it.

    from third onwards it have some customers list upto fifth page.

    now in a perticular situation i want to print 3rd, 4th & 5th pages. but when we call open_form it opens the form fron first page by default. but i want to print from 3rd page.

    so, now i'll call start_form, in start_form parameters we will give the page no. then it will print from that perticular page only. not only for printing, even to see preview from a perticular page then we use this start_form.

    hope now ur clear.

    reward if helpful.

    hi,

    yes it's mandatory to give open_form and close_form.

    with out that it will not recognize the form from the driver program.

    Hi,

    forms are 5 type, there are as follows:

    1: open_form

    2: start_form

    3: write_form

    4: close_form and

    5: end_form.

    If start_form is present then end_form also should be there

    One more FM is useful is there i.e. Control_form ,but

    its an optional.

    Open_form-----Here u have to Assign ur SAPSCRIPT form .

    Write_form-----here u have to write the data,i.e. Header,Item and Footer Data.

    Close_form------close the SAPSCRIPT form.....

    Hope this data is suffi. for u, reward points.dont forget.

    Regards

    Fareedas
