Opinions Needed: SAPSCRIPT to SMARTFORMS..Is it always Worth the Effort?


We have many old SAPSCRIPT programs, So I am in the process of converting it to a SMARTFORM. While I have developed a new SMARTFORM, this is my first conversion. I am beginning to believe that this conversion may not always be worth the effort?

My reasoning is that it seems that since many of our old SAPSCRIPT programs did not use a style, meaning they had their own unique character and paragraph formats, each text output needs to be checked and revised line by line in the converted SMARTFORM to match the old SAPSCRIPT. We have older SAPSCRIPTS that we would like to upgrade into SMARTFORMS, but I am now wondering if it is worth the effort in some cases. Or, Do some of you use a gauge to determine whether a SAPSCRIPT is worth converting tom a SAMERTFORM or not?

I'd be interested in everyone's thoughts who have been through this process. Is there a reason to believe they should be converted even with all the extra work, or NO?
