Delivery and Translation

Transport Object

SAP Smart Forms and Smart Styles are stand-alone development objects. This means that for every Smart Form and for every Smart Style a TADIR entry is created. The corresponding transport objects are called

  • SSFO for Smart Forms (R3TR SSFO name)
  • SSST for Smart Styles (R3TR SSST name)

For creating and maintaining TADIR entries and transport objects, use the Transport Organizer as you would for any other development object. When creating a Smart Form or a Smart Style, you must assign it to a development class. If the development class is not temporary, the Transport Organizer delivers the Smart Form or Smart Style to other systems in the usual way.


SAP Smart Forms and Smart Styles are client-independent objects.

Translating Texts

SAP Smart Forms and Smart Styles take part in the usual translation process for development objects. The transport objects SSFO and SSST are known to the translation tools and appear in the relevant worklists. For a Smart Form, you can translate the following texts:

  • All long texts of nodes
  • The contents of all text nodes

To translate these texts, use the general procedures for translating long texts.

Master Language and Language Vector

When you create a Smart Form, the master language is your logon language. You create the form and any language-specific texts (descriptions, texts) in the master language.

The language vector indicates the languages into which the form must be translated.

Standard Forms

Depending on the applications of the SAP System in which you want to use SAP Smart Forms, a number of standard forms is provided. Customers can adapt any of these forms to their special requirements. However, since the system does not log modifications to the standard forms, the customers should copy the standard form, modify this copy, and then link it to the application. This procedure prevents the loss of the modified data when, during an upgrade, an updated version of the standard form is transferred.
