writing spool to pdf file on server

74 Views

I am trying to convert a spool dataset (otf) into pdf format and write it to the server disk.

There is a report, called RSTXPDFT4 which downloads the file to the workstation.

I have managed to do the pdf-conversion with calling:

CALL FUNCTION 'CONVERT_OTFSPOOLJOB_2_PDF'

EXPORTING

SRC_SPOOLID = i_sp01-rqident

NO_DIALOG = ' '

  • DST_DEVICE =

  • PDF_DESTINATION =

IMPORTING

PDF_BYTECOUNT = numbytes

PDF_SPOOLID = pdfspoolid

  • OTF_PAGECOUNT =

BTC_JOBNAME = jobname

BTC_JOBCOUNT = jobcount

TABLES

PDF = PDF

EXCEPTIONS

ERR_NO_OTF_SPOOLJOB = 1

ERR_NO_SPOOLJOB = 2

ERR_NO_PERMISSION = 3

ERR_CONV_NOT_POSSIBLE = 4

ERR_BAD_DSTDEVICE = 5

USER_CANCELLED = 6

ERR_SPOOLERROR = 7

ERR_TEMSEERROR = 8

ERR_BTCJOB_OPEN_FAILED = 9

ERR_BTCJOB_SUBMIT_FAILED = 10

ERR_BTCJOB_CLOSE_FAILED = 11.

but I have no clue how to write the returned pdf data in the internal table PDF to the disk.

I have tried

OPEN DATASET name_x FOR OUTPUT IN BINARY MODE.

PDF_KOMPLETT = ''.

LOOP AT PDF.

TRANSFER PDF-tdformat TO name_x.

TRANSFER PDF-tdline TO name_x.

ENDLOOP.

CLOSE DATASET name_x.

but that adds bytes at the end because it always writes complete lines...

Anyone have this problem before?

I cannot remember if there is a function to write the contents of an internal table to the server harddisk.

Thanks
