Creating Forms Using SAP Smart Forms

This section gives an overview of how to create a form in which to display application data from database tables.

For more detailed information on this procedure, see Using SAP Smart Forms.

When creating a form, you must:

  1. Retrieve the application data.
  2. Describe your form.
  3. Pass the application data to the form.

Printing the Form

Call a function module generated by SAP Smart Forms to print your form. SAP Smart Forms supports the following output options:

  • The form is printed on a printer connected to the SAP System. Before printing, use the print preview to check whether the form is correct.
  • The function module generates an XSF data stream that transfers, for example, the form description including the retrieved data to programs of third-party companies.
