Purchase Order SmartForm: job_output_info is empty

Former Member

Hi ABAPers,

I cannot get the export parameter JOB_OUTPUT_INFO to populate at all for the baseline smartform YBUS_MMPO (Purchase Order) function module.

My goal is to retrieve the OTF data table and convert to PDF. For some reason, nothing is returned in this structure and I can't for the life of me figure out why. I've tried many different combinations of values in the control_parameters structure as well as the output_options structure based on different recommendations but to no avail. Please provide some recommendations...

Note: I have tried to retrieve OTF data for a different smartform in this system and was successful, leading me to believe it has something to do specifically with this smartform itself and/or my combination of parameters. Additionally, if the control_parameters-getotf is not passed, the smartform will successfully generate/be displayed.

Here's what I got. Thanks in advance:

Hi Alex,

    Please try with  ls_control_param-preview = ' ' (space). And also check the sy-subrc value after executing the FM in debugger, if it's anything other than 0. Do let us know.

Anubhab,

I tried the change you suggested and changed ls_control_param-preview to ' '.

Unfortunately, ls_job_output_info is still coming out completely empty. Strangely, sy-subrc is 0.

Hi Alex,

           Please try the following and let us know:

ls_control_param-no_dialog = 'X'.

ls_control_param-device      = 'PRINTER'.

ls_control_param-tdnewid    = 'X'.

ls_control_param-tdimmed    = 'X'.

ls_control_param-preview   = ' '.

ls_control_param-tdprinter   = 'PDF1'.

ls_control_param-tddest      = 'LP01'. (your local printer name)

ls_control_param-getotf       = 'X'.


And also for IMPORTING (EXPORTING) parameter for the smartform pass

user_settings    = 'X'.

Anubhab,

Tried this configuration and still no luck. Sy-subrc = 0 but again empty export parameter.

Thanks,

Alex
