Everytime we generate a Output, say Invoice Print-Out or Order Confirmation Print Out system generates a Spool Request Number & also displays the same.

This Spool Request Number is also traceable in T-Code SP01.

Now, say that you havea requirement to generate a PDF Copy for particular Output, what would you do?

For this purpose SAP has given a Program – RSTXPDFT4

Go to T-Code SE38 & Execute Report – RSTXPDFT4


System will ask for Spool Request Number, enter the same & execute:


System will ask for the Location on C Drive. Chose the required Location & save.

Subsequently systen will display the success message:


Hope this helps,

            Hi Jignesh,

            is there any possibility of converting the invoice to PDF directly from the spool request as End users do not have Authorization to se38.

              Hello Siva,

              Yes that is very much possible by two means:

              1. Speak to your ABAPer & he will do the needful program changes & system will create a PDF instead of sending a print-out to Printer.

              2. Install a freeware application like CutePDF which will add a PDF printer in your Computer. Now select this Printer as default printer & send a Print-out from SAP. System will ask for file name & location & create a PDF copy of Print-out

    Hi jignesh,

    Nice documents, i used to check your documents which are really good for SAP information.

    I found another way to send PDF Copy of spool request directly in mail –

    Go to SP02

    select spool request

    At the top left – sppool rquest – forward – send using SAPoffice3

    enter email-id

    Now pdf copy will reach in your email.

    Dear one doubt on this plz let me know

    When ever we create out put billing we have to go to Sp01 and take spool request nors one by one and maintaining in in se38– Rstxpdft4 so this is lengthy process so automatically if we want any method is there

    instead of this PDF!

    ex : i created 100 billing doc all will be generated in one file
