    As always it is recommended that you search the SAP Help first then when you have specific questions you can post that. Your question is so broad it is difficult to know where to start to answer it.

    Print Workbench is divided into the following subobjects:

    Form Classes

    Application Forms

    You can call up the Print Workbench via the area menu PWB.

    Form Class- containes the underlying data hierarchy for the application. The attributes of a form class contain controlling information that is relevant for further processing in the Application Form. (see example PWB_FLIGHT_NOTIFICATION). Generally you use one of the standard SAP Form Classes but you can create your own. (Transaction EFCS). Refer to SAP Help on creating Form Classes and Form Levels.

    Application Form - Consists of properties/attributes, hierarchy, SAPscript/Smart Form, SAPscript text, User Exit Includes, Generated print program. The hierarchy is determined by the assigned Form Class. (Transaction EFRM)

    You create your SAPScript (or Smart Form) with the necessary windows.

    You may enter text directly in the SAPScript (if there are no variables) or you add the text to the appropriate form levels in the Application Form.

    At each form level you are able to add user exits - before, during and after looping through the level.

    You can also add text exits for the text added.

    When you activate the Application Form a print program is generated.

    you create a print request which adds the record to the correspondence container (the transaction used depends on what correspondence you are creating) then you go to transaction FPCOPARA to print the correspondence.

    This is a high-level overview. No quick answer to your question other than to once again refer you to the SAP Help. Hopefully it gives you a place to start.
