Back to overview.

This structure contains:

  • Options for fax output
  • Spool settings with options for:
    • Archiving (determining the storage mode)
    • Print preview (configuring functions in the print preview)
    • Name of the spool request
    • Spool control (print, delete, spool retention time, and so on)
    • Cover page
    • Page selection and copies

The URLCALL parameter is used internally only.

Static and Dynamic Settings

The Form Builder contains a range of form attributes that you can use to determine the output format and possibly also the output medium, statically in the form. You find these attributes on the Output Options tab of the Form Attributes node.

You can override these settings using the output options:

Overriding the Output Format

Desired Output Format

Settings for Overriding

Standard output

XSFCMODE = 'X'.
XSF = SPACE.
XDFCMODE = 'X'.
XDF = SPACE.

XSF

XSFCMODE = 'X'.
XSF = 'X'.
XDFCMODE = SPACE.

XSF+HTML

XSFCMODE = 'X'.
XSF = 'X'.
XSFFORMAT = 'X'.
XDFCMODE = SPACE.

XDF

After you have overriden the output format, SAP Smart Forms ignores all other static settings in the form as well. The table below shows which parameters match which input fields in the Output box of the form attributes:
