Create Spool Request for PDF Data

Hello ABAP Experts,

Let me start by a description of the issue Iu2019m getting:

- I had a request to convert some Zebra labels to Laser labels.

- All is printed fine except some dynamic white text on a black background. (No way to use static graphics)

- Printers to be used are not color printers so I will never get this white text printed.

- I have no possibility to modify printers parameters.

When using my Locl printer (PDF printouts) then sending the printout to the laser printer (via an SAP popup asking for the printer to be used) all is working fine.

The problem is that this manual procedure will never be accepted by the key users.

To make a workaround of this situation, I got the idea to catch the OTF data from the smartform and convert it to PDF then print it.

Until now I can get the PDF data and even save the PDF to my local desktop (but I donu2019t want to save it, I want to print it in my laser printer).

My actual situation is:

Iu2019m blocked in the step of creating an SAP spool request of this PDF and send it to my laser printer.

Do you have an idea how to create this spool request based on the PDF data?

I hope that itu2019s clear enough for you.

Thank you in advance.

Moez.

PS: I read a lot of SDN threads about similar issues (white text on black background) without finding a solution.

Thatu2019s why Iu2019m trying this PDF workaround.

    One more detail: I used Function Module: CONVERT_OTF_2_PDF to get my PDF data.
