Change the editor to 'PC Editor' and take the menu.

Include -> Characters -> SAP Symbols


In a window u create a text element..

Then in the Properties of the text element there is tab with WEB PROPERTIES.. In that give a field name and the Input type ( list box will be there ) , give it as check box ,,

Thats it!! u will have a check box in that text element !!!!!!

No need to upload anything, just use SAP symbols.

For unmarked checkbox create a new text field and add symbol <727> in it.

For marked checkbox, use symbol <697>.

They do not show on print preview, but you can see them on paper or for example on .PDF output.

You can see a list of SAP symbols in transaction SO10, menu path Insert / Character / SAP symbols.

you can check the symbols using SO10. insert->character ->SAP symbols.

there you can see all the symbols and their representation.

Reward points if it is useful...

reward if it helps u...
