Displaying English and ARABIC language on a smartform?

Hi All,

Hi Folks, I have an issue printing two different languages on a smartform; I should print English and One more language of ARABIC style (RIGHT TO LEFT). In Debugging mode i could see the Arabic Text exactly in the format which i have entered but when i print it takes the other way.

For Ex: ABCD - (Fyi - this is of Arabic Language dialect)

o/p: ( i m getting) DCBA

i tried with Text Include n Text Element during debugging i could see the data as DCBA but when i print the system (MS Tools - Word) are recognising the Language is of Arabic and its automatically changing the cursor position to the end ((**I found this in XML Format of Smartform)). so the form is printing from the new cursor position i.e A; and its displaying the output as ABCD.

Note: I have no problem with List, Screen Etc. except "Form".

Please Advice me. Thanks in Advance.

    Check the printer device type you are using.

    For printing the Arabic output you need the printer defined using ZARSWIN device type. Ask the Basis consultant to do the same.
