New ‘Interactive Forms’ Forum Available

It took a while, but not the least thanks to your (SDN members) repeated requests SDN is now able to offer a dedicated forum for questions and answers on Interactive Forms based on Adobe software.  With SAP NetWeaver 2004s (and mySAP ERP 2005), there are no less than 6 ways Adobe forms technology components are integrated into SAP: – Web Dynpro for Java – Web Dynpro for ABAP– Guided Procedures (in the Composite Application Framework) – ABAP Workbench (transaction SFP, for batch printing) – Business Intelligence (for printing of web reports) – Internet Service Request (in mySAP ERP)  Different types of integration also means different questions. While this new forum is the best place to start with PDF forms discussions (including for those moderating here as we don’t have to search and surf all over SDN to find relevant posts…), some posts may have to be transferred to other forums if the question is not really on the form, but the surrounding process or related technology.  I look forward to comprehensive and constructive discussions – from now in one dedicated place.  All the best, Markus

      We are in the process of implementing Objective Setting and Appraisals (we have ERP 2004).  With this project we are investigating using Adobe Interactive Forms.  I have found quite a bit of information on setting up the forms, but how to I configure the system to utilize the forms?  Is it by utilizing the Print and Web Layout portions of the Templates defined in R/3 in the Layout Tab?

      If there is any documentation that discusses the integration portion of Interactive Forms with SAP's Objective Setting and Appraisal, please let me know.

      Hi Mary Ann,

      every SAP application has a different way of managing their forms from the application side, which could be customizing transactions or other ways. As the 'technology' Product Manager, I can answer questions on Interactive Forms as we provide it in SAP NetWeaver, but my knowledge on our applications is only limited.

      For your HCM scenario, I am afraid I have to refer you to an HCM contact (see so that you can get the correct information.

      Best regards,
      Markus Meisl
