    Folder node is basically used to clud together related entities. Say a group of text elements or certain rows of table,

    You may want that certain lines be printed as one enitty without any break in those cases we put all those inside a folder node and enable page protection on the folder so no either all lines will print on that particular page or next page but they wont break.

    Hi,

    The purpose, I think is -

    1. To separate Logical blocks.

    2. For providing page-break.

    & whats others...?

    Pls help.

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi,

    The more extensive a form becomes, the less clear becomes the node hierarchy in the tree structure. To avoid this, you can combine related nodes by appending them under a folder node. By using a folder node and checking the 'protect' checkbox, everything in that folder will be page protected.

    Nodes assigned to cells of a template [can better be identified in the tree structure if there is a folder for each line or column.

    Procedure

    1. To create a folder node call the context menu for that node in the tree structure that shall

    contain the text, and choose Create Folder.

    2. Enter a unique name for the node and a description (for example, cells of the third line).

    3. To assign other nodes to the folder, use Drag&Drop to pull them to the folder node or insert

    new nodes as successors.

    Hope this will help you.

    The standard sap documentaion on smartform defines a folder node as follows

    The folder node is

    an outline node that you can use to combine related nodes.

    Combining Nodes:

    Use:

    The more extensive a form becomes, the less clear becomes the node hierarchy in the tree

    structure. To avoid this, you can combine related nodes by appending them under a folder node.

    Nodes assigned to cells of a template can better be identified in the tree

    structure if there is a folder for each line or column.

    Depending on how long the last date for payment has been exceded, each dunning

    letter should start with a different introduction. To to this, you create a text node for

    each dunning level that contains the relevant dunning letter and specify conditions

    to print only one of the nodes. In this case, it is reasonable to combine the

    different text nodes in a folder.
