I am trying to ftp a pdf from sap with Abap but I have hit a problem with FM SCMS_TEXT_TO_XSTRING.
I am converting a spool file with function CONVERT_OTFSPOOLJOB_2_PDF then trying to use SCMS_TEXT_TO_XSTRING to prepare the pdf for FTP_R3_TO_SERVER.
The problem is when I try and convert the pdf with SCMS_TEXT_TO_XSTRING it will miss any space characters at the end of a table line. Internally it is using STRLEN to determine the line size which causes it to miss a space char at the end of any line.
So my question is, is there a better way of converting the pdf ready for ftp or any known work arounds for this problem ?
