Hi team,

I am doing research on uploading word file from local system and covert into pdf using ABAP or SAP program and print the pdf.

Is it possible? Any suggestion or idea.

Thanks,

Nirojan.

No, you need to call an external tool from SAP to perform this task.

the process of converting a DOCX document to PDF is actually called "printing", otherwise the other part of your problem is fairly simple with GOS and similar options.

Hi frdric.girod

What is the external tool?

Hi c5e08e0478aa4727abc4482f5be390b2

can you please explain your first line. GOS using attachment this is not my case.

MS word --> pdf --> print

GOS is one possible API / location where to store files, not the only one.

Printing a PDF, not sure if I have ever done that.... I know you can go from OTF (spool) to PDF, viceversa not so sure.

nirojan_vel it depends of the Operating System of the server.

If it is a Linux, you have tool like DOC2PDF ...
