Unable to print invoice

Hi

I am trying to get a print out of a sales invoice that i created. But i get the error "Output could not be issued" when i try to print it from VF02 >> Billing document >> issue output to. Here i select the printer and in the print options and hit print, thats when i get the msg. The description is given below:

An error occurred while output was being issued. It is possible, for example, that the form to be issued has not been activated or has an error. An error may also have arisen while the data to be issued was being edited.

Moreover i am able to view it in Print preview, but the problem here is that i get the text in German and not in the logon language which is English.

How do i resolve this???

Regards,

Sujai

    Hi,

    Please check with your ABAPer that when the print program was copied from the standard one or any other the language given was proper.

    The message you get is due to ABAP and not related to configuration. Ask your ABAPer to check the smartform. There could be many reasons like probably the form is not active or not generated, windows are outside the margins, logo is missing etc.

    Hi,

    Just check whether the SMARTFORM for Invoice-Printing is being activated or not. You must have to get in-touch with your Basis-Personnel.

    However, you may check whether has following has been done:

    SPRO --> IMG --> Sales And Distribution --> Basic Functions --> Output Control --> Maintain Output Determination for Billing Documents

    1. Maintain Output types

    2. Assign Output Types to Partner Function

    3. Maintain Output Determination Procedure

    4. Assign Output Determination Procedure

    Lastly,

    VF02 --> Billing Doc. No. --> GoTo --> Header --> Output

    Check whether output type has been attached to the document.

    if not, then attach.

    If yes, then select output and

    Click Tab: Communication Method

    Provide Logical Destination and

    Check the Box: Print Immediately.

    Now SAVE.

    Hope this will resolve the issue.

    Best Regards,

    Amit.
