Download spool to PDF document on application server

Hi,

I am using function CONVERT_OTFSPOOLJOB_2_PDF to convert a sapscript spool and then downloading the internal table provided to a pdf file on the application server. The sapscript form contains company logos.

After transferring the file from the application server to PC and then opening the pdf document I get the following message:

"There was an error while trying to parse an image."

The PDF doc contains everything except the company logo.

I noticed that this works (i.e. company logo is present in the downloaded file) when I transfer the internal table that contains the PDF contents onto my PC using GUI_DOWNLOAD using mode 'BIN'. However, when I transfer the contents of the same internal

table to a file on the application server using abap statement:

'Open Dataset <filename> FOR OUTPUT IN BINARY MODE'

I get the problem described above.

I noticed that SAP has provided standard program RSTXPDFT4 to convert a spool and download it into a PC file. However is there a similar program that downloads a spool onto the application server? Perhaps there is a 'special' way in downloading PDF documents onto the application server?

I don't this problem with sapscripts that do not have a company logo.

Is there a certain restriction on 'Open Dataset'with transfering logos in PDF documents?

Any help would be greatly appreciated in the form of reward points.

Thanks

Liam
