    hi,

    The module OPEN_FORM opens layout set printing. This function must be called up before you can work with other layout set functions (WRITE_FORM, ...).

    The layout set can be changed in the current print procedure with START_FORM. It is therefore possible to combine several different layout sets in one printer output. Before a new layout set is opened with START_FORM, an open layout set must be closed with END_FORM.

    Hi,

    Open_Form : To OPEN A FORM FOR PRINTING THE FORM SHOULD BE

    OPEN USING OPEN_FORM.

    START_FORM : To Begin form several identical form with

    different data in single spool request,it shold bestart

    with START_FORM & CLOSE with END_FORM.using this we can open many layoutsets.

    Open_form -- is used to initialize the spool request.

    Start_form-- is used to initialize the layout.

    Reward if useful.

    Thanks,

    HI,

    The module OPEN_FORM opens layout set printing. This function must be called up before you can work with other layout set functions (WRITE_FORM, ...).

    It is not obligatory to enter a layout set name to open it. If a layout set is not specified, one must be opened with START_FORM.

    Form printing must be completed by the CLOSE_FORM function module. If this is not carried out, nothing is printed or displayed on the screen.

    The layout set can be changed in the current print procedure with START_FORM. It is therefore possible to combine several different layout sets in one printer output. Before a new layout set is opened with START_FORM, an open layout set must be closed with END_FORM.

    Hope this information would be useful.

    Hi,

    Difference between start & open forms:

    ℹ️ Open_form is mandatory while start_form is optional.

    (ii) Open_form is used to open the layout set output. It should have a close_form, else we will face an error while running the script.Close_form ends the layout set output.

    Start_form is used to start a new layout set.In case if we have more than one form then we have to use the start_form. It has to be followed by an end_form.

    Reward if you find the reply useful
