    E-Form is build on SAP Add-On technology. This means, you have to install an additional component on your SAP Server, e.g. SRM 5.0. The prerequisite is the SAP NetWeaver 700 ABAP Stack.

    This Add-On allows you an individual and completely dynamic configuration of multiple Web Forms. The attributes on the Web Form can be bound to the OCI parameters respectively. The configuration is done in the cluster view via transaction SM34 or by some upload mechanism via Excel sheets. Given the included Badi technology you can additionally run validation checks by raising error/warning messages, and you can manipulate the attribute values. In case of business cards you could for example read the user attributes directly from an SAP HR system.

    The consulting solution offers an Add-On called 'Dynamic Web Forms'. With this Add-On you will be able to configure individual Web Forms without need for development. In particular, Dynamic Web Forms offers the possibility to create highly flexible ordering templates to be customized on individual purpose. The key functionality supports the composition of various attributes on the Web Screen allowing for different functionality and web design.

    The features and functions can be summarized as follows:

    Web Form as a WebDynpro application called via OCI from another system, e.g. SRM Server, SRM-MDM, MM, PM, and others

    Easy to use adoption of new Web Forms within few hours by customizing without time-consuming efforts in development

    A single Web Forms corresponds to a single catalog item and can be optionally linked with an SRM-MDM catalog item

    Every Web Form can have an individual design supporting various attributes

    The attributes support different design elements, like input fields, long text fields, dropdown lists (selection boxes), images, text header, volume pricing, and others.

    Dropdown lists can have interdependecies and pricing deltas to be used for configurable products

    Supplier part number can be concatenated

    Pictures can change dynamically in runtime

    F4 search help can be enabled on attribute level. It resides in the WebDynpro application having very similar functionality comparing an F4 search help on SAPgui

    Individual OCI mapping per Web Form. Concatenation of required information into the OCI longtext description

    Optimized Web-Form Lifecycle supported by standard SAP tools (i.e. customizing and its transports across SAP systems)

    Given the platform of a SAP NetWeaver 2004s, the Add-On Dynamic Web Forms is build on WebDynpro ABAP technology. There is no need for additional infrastructure.

    Prerequisites for the installation of the Add-On:

    - SRM 5.0 (on NetWeaver 2004s, 700) or

    - ERP 2005 (on NetWeaver 2004s, 700)

    Hope this helps!!
