Convert PDF to XSTRING and dysplay in portal(html)


Hi experts :

I need your help once again. I've read all the post regarding this issue but can't find a solution for my problem.

Basically, I have to create a PDF from a spool, convert it to xstring and send it to the web via RFC.

What I do is :

Convert the spool to PDF using FM CONVERT_OTFSPOOLJOB_2_PDF.

Convert the PDF tline table into XSTRING using a field symbol and a table of tlines (as described in one of the SDN blogs).

Then, I send to the web the value reurned from the conversion of the PDF line to XSTRING.

But, when opening the xstring there is nor PDF file but and error. If I download the PDF tline table, it works and can create the PDF, but nothing from the XSTRING.

My questions are :

Do we have to do any conversion on the portal side to convert the XSTRING into PDF?

is there any possibility of downloading the xstring to my desktop in order to check if I could create the PDF file from it?.

Helpful answer will be rewarded.
