Web Printing Capabilities

Hi, We have not experimented with the "Web Printing" capabilities yet and have a question or 2 on the topic. Some people feel it would be better to go to crystal reports to get better formatted printouts or added functionality for printing.

1. For printing our general reports should we do the standard SAP "Enhance Web Printing" or look into Crystal for this?

2. For printing our Web templates with multiple InfoProviders will crystal make this easier?

3. If we would like to format our reports to looks a specific way. "I.E. This row should be highlighted" would crystal help us with that or would CSS be able to accomplish as well?

Thanks for any direction you can provide....

    Hello Kenneth

    SAP "Enhanced Web Printing" basically just add a header, a footer and display variables.... but there are many things you cannot do : change the column width, page break on characteristics values...

    That the report is based on basic cube or multiprovider is not relevant.

    To highlight a column you can do it with standard BW : in the query : highlight, or use exception, use CSS, or table interface.

    Until next major version of BW, the best tool to print using standard SAP is probably WORKBOOK with eventually VBA.

    Best regards from France
