Barcode Issue - Script conversion to smartform

Hi,

We have a FI requirement wherein the users have an existing SAP script and print program for F.62 transaction for the correspondence type SAP19.

Now they have changed their printer, and the current printer does not have the Barcode support module. So they are unable to print the Barcode.

They have come forward with two options:

1) Convert the SAP script to Smart form and change the existing Z program to accommodate the Smart form.

2) Convert the SAP script to Smart form and a create a new Z program.

We havenu2019t usually seen smart forms assigned to print programs in this kind of FI customization transactions.

1) Is it possible to chnage the Z program to accomodate the Smartform as it is a copy of standard program and has many standard includes also.

2) If we create the smartform , can the customization be done so that Smartform can be given instead of script? Has someone done this previously?

3) What are our other options?(Users are not ready to set up the barcode support module in the new printer)

Awaiting a quick reply,

Thanks,

Neethu

    Hi,

    I had similar requirement in my project. I was using tcode IW32 (QM module) which was calling standard print ptogram and standard script. But we wanted some extra fields so, we created a new script and copy of standard print program. Script had barcode printing. But printer was not supporting barcode printing via script, so we had to convert it to smartform.

    1) Is it possible to chnage the Z program to accomodate the Smartform as it is a copy of standard program and has many standard includes also.

    -> Yes, you will have to copy the standard program into Z program, check where they are calling script, comment out that code and instead call smartform. Ensure that all data fetching is done before you call your smartfrom. (Note: Sometimes in standard programs they use logical data base.)

    2) If we create the smartform , can the customization be done so that Smartform can be given instead of script? Has someone done this previously?

    -> You can create a smartform with the same name as that of script. That is what we did in case of my requirement. So that you do not need any further customization for your smartform.

    3) What are our other options?(Users are not ready to set up the barcode support module in the new printer)

    -> You will have to convert your script into smartform. It will take some more efforts. But its possible.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,
