Hi guys,

I'm very new to adobe forms and I'm starting with some tutorials i found on-line, I followed each one step by step but when I come to the step of executing my form and after I select my printer and press preview I get a screen with this message:

Test for function group /1BCDWB/SM00000003

Function module /1BCDWB/SM00000003


Runtime: 17.120.560 Microseconds


Message ID: FPRUNX Message number: 003


Call contained error(s): ADS (2)

I hope you can help.

    There are multiple options how to use Adobe forms - scenarios.

    These are:

    - print forms (adobe is used to visually format the output for the printer) - the result is a prited document or a PDF file which look like exported from a text editor, everything is printed and cannot be changed, no input is possible or expected

    - interactive forms: you can use these to get the data from the users:

    --- Webdynpro ABAP/ Java with Adobe form - online inetarctive form

    --- Offline interactive form (get adobe form prepopulated with data, this data can be altered or the user can write in something more/ delete etc., after that the form is uploaded back to SAP, data are mined out and stored to DB or send somewhere)

    Pick your scenario or describe the problem youre facing. Otto

    Ah, complete beginner:)) I guess you have no ADS installed at all. If true, you will have to ask you basis guys to install it for you, it needs some passwords, basis skill and a litlle bit of magic:)) This is not installed with LC Designer, it is a server component, a webservice by Adobe connected to SAP.

    Please go to the tx SE38 and check for the programs FP_*. Here you should run at least the following reports to prove, there is no ADS machine congured in your landscape:




    I guess the result will be no ADS installed (not a message, only an overall result) and you will have to ask to get it installed. Otto

    have you ever seen your form generated before? Or this is the first time you try to preview it and it does not work?

    Are you sure your ADS is working? Are you sure you have developed the form the right way? Did you experiment with the scripting or binding the fields?

    I have seen FPRUNX error few times and mostly it was a binding issue, but that is just a guess. Maybe there is some more description of the problem?

    Try this:

    1) I would try to remove all the binding in the form fields. If this works try to create the binding one field after another and you wil find where there is a problem.

    2) try F8/ run/ test blank form (no ABAP coding, just blank layout printed). If this fails, the problem is not with any coding but the form itself (binding etc.)

    Hope this can help you further, Otto

      actually i haven't seen my form generated before, that was my first trial, about the ADS i know nothing about it really, i didn't configure any thing related to it, and i don know is it installed with the adobe designer or i should install it separately.

      i tried removing the binding and left a static text but nothing changed.

      do you have any suggestions ?
