    In general, PDF files can be manipulated using specially designed software or an API. To my knowledge, there is no such functionality in ABAP. If PDF file is generated by SAP (e.g. as a form output) then this part needs to be taken care of in that process. Otherwise I feel it's rather unreasonable to expect from an ERP system to be able manipulate a random PDF file.

    This question appears on SCN periodically since at least 2008, please make sure to search before posting.

    • To be clear, "digital signature" <> "a printout is signed and then scanned as a PDF". Digital signature is the whole separate concept, there is a lot of information on this online, including SAP Notes.

      What does this document have to do with SAP and why do you expect SAP to manipulate an existing file? That part is still not clear, sorry.

      If this document represents a process in SAP (e.g. a purchase order approval) then your task is not "to add a banner to a PDF file". You just need to trigger SAP output after the approval and then the resulting PDF file can have anything you want on it.

      Adding signatures to the forms, especially in the PO approval scenario, has been discussed on SCN before.

    Hi Yunus Emre Biçer,

    Maybe you can do using SAP transaction SFP (adobe).

    Hi Yunus,

    You can change the custom PDF file using SMARTFORMS (smartform )or SFP (adobe form) transaction .
