to down load the print format to pdf and sent the data thru the mail

i have a report to which a smartform is attached to it.when executed that program the selection screen will contain customer codes within the range.

on giving the range of customers the screen displays some text for each and every customer given.

now we take a printout manually for each and every customer.

in order to avoid this, is there a way to download the printed text for each customer and send the mail automatically to each and every customer , so that paper printing can be stopped.

can anybody help me in this out.

    whatever u get the data from SMARTFORM is OTF data, so first u need to convert the OTF data to PDF using FM 'CONVERT_OTF'.

    Now, u ill get the PDF data in '132' line size format, now u need to convert it into '255' line size format using FM 'QCE1_CONVERT'.

    once u get the PDF data in 255 line size, use the FM 'SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1' to send it through e mail..

    try to use where used list for all the above FM to understand what parameters needs to be passed to FM's.

    Hope it helps!!
