how to edit the contents of spools generated by smartforms

Hi All,

I am developing a print form using print work bench & smartforms.

There is a requirement to generate both preprinted forms (contains only datas) and Non-preprinted forms (contains u2026 data + layout + colors + picturesu2026etc) using a single smartform.In which the non-preprinted part should only get converted into pdf & preprinted should only be get printed.

For this I am making a replica of the first two pages of non-preprinted into preprinted format in the same smartform(total 4 pages).

Here I am able to extract & save the non-preprinted part from the spool into PDF.

After the above process, I want to edit the spool content, & then sent to printer.

But clueless about editing the spool content...

( for eg:- delete the first two pages of content in the spool & print the rest)

So my question is u2026.

-Is it possible to edit the contents of spool generated by smartforms u2026 ?

(Is it possible to copy the content of existing spool ,edit, save it into new spool and delete the old one. )

Any solutions / suggestions u2026 ?

Thank you for your attention.

With Regards,

santh

    Hey tell me if u r able to delete the first two pages of content in the spool would ur problem be solved?

    I am experimenting with the spool, so if the above mentioned is ur requirement, then i can concentrate on that part itself.

      Hi Kartik,

      Done !

      Problem resolved... 😊

      Took the spool content , split it into pdf(non-preprint) part and preprint part.

      With the preprint data generated a new spool using the FM 'PRINT_OTF'.

      and deleted the old spool.

      Thank you very much for your constant support & guidance...

    not possible

    (Is it possible to copy the content of existing spool ,edit, save it into new spool and delete the old one. )

    not possible

    -


    try to control it in smartform itself.....(above idea will not work).

    in every window we have tab output option

    in box and shading

    in frames

    we have option lines with if it is checked u will get layout....

    try this ...

    from ur driver program pass a variable to identify o/p is preprinted forms or non-preprinted forms

    variable for preprinted forms (pp)

    variable for non-preprinted forms (nonpp)

    create two windows for every title (address).....

    one window u specify lines with

    in condition tab specify variable to identify non-preprinted forms nonpp = 'X'

    in another window u dont specify line with

    in condition tab specify variable to identify preprinted forms pp = 'X'

      Hi santh,

      I never worked on print workbench so not much aware of all its options, so dont know if it can call 2 smartforms at once or not,

      probably u can try with the possibility of not using the workbench as it would give more flexibility with the driver program.
