Hi Friend,

here i am giving you a how to create a simple smart form.

SAP Smartforms can be used for creating and maintaining forms for mass printing in SAP Systems. The output medium for Smartforms support printer, fax, e-mail, or the Internet (by using the generated XML output).

According to SAP, you need neither have any programming knowledge nor use a Script language to adapt standard forms. However, basic ABAP programming skills are required only in special cases (for example, to call a function module you created or for complex and extensive conditions).

1. Create a new smartforms

Transaction code SMARTFORMS

Create new smartforms call ZSMART

2. Define looping process for internal table

Pages and windows

• First Page -> Header Window (Cursor at First Page then click Edit -> Node -> Create)

Here, you can specify your title and page numbering

&SFSY-PAGE& (Page 1) of &SFSY-FORMPAGES(Z4.0)& (Total Page)

• Main windows -> TABLE -> DATA

• In the Loop section, tick Internal table and fill in

• ITAB1 (table in ABAP SMARTFORM calling function) INTO ITAB2

3. Define table in smartforms

Global settings :

Form interface

Variable name Type assignment Reference type

ITAB1 TYPE Table Structure

Global definitions

Variable name Type assignment Reference type

ITAB2 TYPE Table Structure

4. To display the data in the form

Make used of the Table Painter and declare the Line Type in Tabstrips Table

e.g. HD_GEN for printing header details,

IT_GEN for printing data details.

You have to specify the Line Type in your Text elements in the Tabstrips Output options.

Tick the New Line and specify the Line Type for outputting the data.

Declare your output fields in Text elements

Tabstrips - Output Options

For different fonts use this Style : IDWTCERTSTYLE

For Quantity or Amout you can used this variable &GS_ITAB-AMOUNT(12.2)&

5. Calling SMARTFORMS from your ABAP program

REPORT ZSMARTFORM.

  • Calling SMARTFORMS from your ABAP program.

  • Collecting all the table data in your program, and pass once to SMARTFORMS

  • SMARTFORMS

  • Declare your table type in :-

  • Global Settings -> Form Interface

  • Global Definintions -> Global Data

  • Main Window -> Table -> DATA

  • Written by : SAP Hints and Tips on Configuration and ABAP/4 Programming

  • http://sapr3.tripod.com

TABLES: MKPF.

DATA: FM_NAME TYPE RS38L_FNAM.

DATA: BEGIN OF INT_MKPF OCCURS 0.

INCLUDE STRUCTURE MKPF.

DATA: END OF INT_MKPF.

SELECT-OPTIONS S_MBLNR FOR MKPF-MBLNR MEMORY ID 001.

SELECT * FROM MKPF WHERE MBLNR IN S_MBLNR.

MOVE-CORRESPONDING MKPF TO INT_MKPF.

APPEND INT_MKPF.

ENDSELECT.

  • At the end of your program.

  • Passing data to SMARTFORMS

call function 'SSF_FUNCTION_MODULE_NAME'

exporting

formname = 'ZSMARTFORM'

  • VARIANT = ' '

  • DIRECT_CALL = ' '

IMPORTING

FM_NAME = FM_NAME

EXCEPTIONS

NO_FORM = 1

NO_FUNCTION_MODULE = 2

OTHERS = 3.

if sy-subrc <> 0.

WRITE: / 'ERROR 1'.

  • MESSAGE ID SY-MSGID TYPE SY-MSGTY NUMBER SY-MSGNO

  • WITH SY-MSGV1 SY-MSGV2 SY-MSGV3 SY-MSGV4.

endif.

call function FM_NAME

  • EXPORTING

  • ARCHIVE_INDEX =

  • ARCHIVE_INDEX_TAB =

  • ARCHIVE_PARAMETERS =

  • CONTROL_PARAMETERS =

  • MAIL_APPL_OBJ =

  • MAIL_RECIPIENT =

  • MAIL_SENDER =

  • OUTPUT_OPTIONS =

  • USER_SETTINGS = 'X'

  • IMPORTING

  • DOCUMENT_OUTPUT_INFO =

  • JOB_OUTPUT_INFO =

  • JOB_OUTPUT_OPTIONS =

TABLES

GS_MKPF = INT_MKPF

EXCEPTIONS

FORMATTING_ERROR = 1

INTERNAL_ERROR = 2

SEND_ERROR = 3

USER_CANCELED = 4

OTHERS = 5.

if sy-subrc <> 0.

MESSAGE ID SY-MSGID TYPE SY-MSGTY NUMBER SY-MSGNO

WITH SY-MSGV1 SY-MSGV2 SY-MSGV3 SY-MSGV4.

endif.

Try this and say if you have ny issue regarding this.
