Web Dynpro ABAP: Database update and insert using Interactive Adobe form
In this article, we will develop 2 views. In the first view, we will have an input field along with 2 buttons NEW and EDIT. Second view is Adobe Interactive form. Based on the value entered and the button clicked in the first view, second view will get called either with preloaded data or not. We will write the logic for billno to get generated automatically for new entries.In the second view, in the interactive adobe form, we will have a button SUBMIT which will help us to insert/update records in the database table.
