Overview

  • Smart Forms are used to create and maintain forms for mass printing in SAP systems. Besides using the printer for standard output you can also select the Internet (by using a generated HTML output), a fax, or e-mail as the output medium.

Advantages:

  •    With Smart Forms it is easier to customize forms with more functionalities, i.e., table creation with Table Painter.
  •    Unlike SAPscript, you do not have to know scripting commands to perform your tasks. ABAP codes also can be used in Smart Forms.
  •    Smart Forms generate a functional key when activated.
  •    You can download Smart Forms to your local hard disk in XML format
  •    Unlike SAPscripts; Smartforms are client Independent.
  •    Paragraph Formats and Character Formats are maintained in SMARTSTYLES. We can color the Font if required.
  •    Background graphics are possible in case of SMARTFORMS.

 

Creating Multiple Pages

  • Generally smart form doesn’t allow two Main Windows. Hence, create 2 tables inside your main window. One table for populating data on the first page and another table for second page.
  • Design the first page and keep next page with same page name. So that, page is called n number of times.
  • Design second page and keep next page with same page name. So that, page is called n number of times.
  • As two tables are called in the single main window; the same main window having multiple tables has to be copied for the successive pages.
  • Use command to trigger second page.
  • If last page only have templates or no variable data; then we need not worry about Main Windows.
