WWI: Convert EHS-Reports from RTF to PDF when Displaying (FinalReport) on the fly


Hello everybody,

we use WWI to create EH&S reports and store them as .RTF in SAP DMS/KPRO as the documents are parameterized. When genereting the final report by displaying in CG50/CG54 we would like to convert the rtf- to a pdf-file on the fly.

I have searched this issue and got the following information:

* It is possible to generate a pdf in report-shipping and report-export by using Word2010 and the SAP Customizing regarding report-shipping (OSS 1535067).

* In thread is mentioned, that it is possible for displaying on the fly by routing all WWI-Generations to the server
(synchrone WWI-Server) and the PrintUserExit in WWI.ini.

Is the PrintUserExit in WWI.ini in this case also called when displaying the final report in CG50/CG54 or only in Report-Shipping/-Exporting/Printing?

But using this, the section [Printers] must contain a pdf converter as it is described in documentation. Is it possible to use, instead of a printer, the
Word2010-converting-function which SAP uses when generating PDF within report-shipping (OSS 1535067).

Has anybody achieved the mentioned function?

Kind regards
