SBO: Document editing


I have problems in editing documents. I hope you understand my problem because maybe i won't allways find the right translation for the GUI Objects.

I'm edititing an offer and want to design a document where there is a list of articels with their description .Therefor I use the repitition-field or area (the black ones). But the lenth of that description goes from maybe 2 lines up to 2 pages.

So my questions are:

1. How can I create a Textfield that size allways fits to the length of the corresponding data source which is a memotext that goes up to 3 pages?

2. How does the repetition area conforms to the size of that textfield.

3. whre can I get a documentation for document editing

I hope I expressed myself in an understandable way and that anyone can help me.

    Hello Juergen,

    sorry that I can't give you any hint, but as far as I know (and tested it), you won't be able to realize that. If someone else here can proove me wrong, I'd like to read about it...

    In short form: It's not possible!

    We were also trying to get such a dynamic form handling implemented into the standard SBO doc editor, but weren't able to - all you can do is, "reserve" some space in the doc and leave it blank, if the data is missing. There's also a SAP note available for that, but it's not really sufficient (and extremely complex).

    That's why most companies using SBO descided to head for another solution, like Crystal Reports, or - in our case - an export to Word, where we can print completely dynamic forms.
