Setting Device Types for Format Conversion


In the case of printer-dependent output formats, you have to specify the device type for which the format is to be converted.


  1. In SAPconnect administration (transaction SCOT), choose Settings ® Device Types for Format Conversion.
  2. Specify for each printer-dependent format (PDF, PCL, PS and TXT) the device type that is to be used for the formatting.

A list of the device types available can be found in SAPNet note 8928. This list is continually updated.

It is indicated in the list whether a format is specified as an output format for a node.
