Adobe to SAP


I have a Adobe Form that has fields similar to those in SAP R/3. This adobe form resides in one of the users desktop. Whenever the user clicks on a submit button on the adobe form, the corresponding fields in R/3 have to be updated.

Could you please suggest a solution on this?

I am thinking of two of them:

1. using webservices

2. using stored procedures.

I am not sure if these approches would work or not.

Thanks in advance

    Hi Karthika,

    The best option here is to use Web services. This will work perfectly. Just develop a form using the web service as the data connection for the form. The web service will run within Intranet of your organization. For making it available outside Intranet you have to expose and register this web service. After that it will work outside organization also.

    Another option is to use Guided Procedures. Using this you can send the adobe form to the users e-mail id. User will fill it and send it back to the e-mail id from which he has received it. Once the form will be received the GP will automatically read the data and will provide to you WD Java application. To follow this approach you can use following document:

    Hope it will help.

    • Hi Karthika,

      You should have knowledge of ABAP for creating a web service if you want it in R/3 side. You can develop that webservice from a function module or BAPI in SAP and using that web service in your form you can connect to SAP system to get data and to save data. But this will work within intranet. For using this webservice over the internet the organisation must have to register this web service and after that it will be available out side organisation intranet.

      Also you can use webservices made in java, but I don't have much knowledge over that. For using webservice in you form just goto data view tab and right click->select new data connection, choose WSDL file-> click next and give the url of the WSDL file. you will get the functionalities on the next screen, select the required one-> it will generate the fields under data view. For creating these fields on the screen, just right click on the Root in the data view-> select generate fields, it will generate the fields with one action button to execute the web service.

      There is no document available in my knowledge, however you can search on SDN.

      Hope it will help.

    Hello Experts,

    My company is looking to improve document management within SAP, our version is 4.70. Right now we are not doing any B2E or web based work. Can someone guide me to where we need to start with integrating Adobe for managing documents?
