Hi Suki,

<b>SAP have created a standard program RSTXPDFT4 to convert your Sapscripts spools into a PDF format.

Specify the spool number and you will be able to download the sapscripts spool into your local harddisk.

Please note that it is not restricted to sapsciprts spool only. Any reports in the spool can be converted using the program 'RSTXPDFT4'.

</b>

1.Go to sp01 and get the spool number

2.Run the program RSTXPDFT4 in se38

3. Give the spool number and mention the directory and filename where to want to store the pdf file

4. press execute

<b>If u want to convert OTF into pdf by using a program use,

CONVERT_OTF_2_PDF or SX_OBJECT_CONVERT_OTF_PDF function modules in u r program.</b>

CALL FUNCTION 'CONVERT_OTF_2_PDF'

Do this.

1st SELECT * FROM TSP01

2nd CALL FUNCTION 'CONVERT_OTFSPOOLJOB_2_PDF'

EXPORTING

SRC_SPOOLID = TSP01-RQIDENT "(Spool number)

the above FM will return you the PDF in your internal table.
