SAP Smartforms can be used for creating and maintaining forms for mass printing in SAP Systems. The output medium for Smartforms support printer, fax, e-mail, or the Internet (by using the generated XML output).

According to SAP, you need neither have any programming knowledge nor use a Script language to adapt standard forms. However, basic ABAP programming skills are required only in special cases (for example, to call a function module you created or for complex and extensive conditions).

1. Create a new smartforms

Transaction code SMARTFORMS

Create new smartforms call ZSMART

2. Define looping process for internal table

Pages and windows

First Page -> Header Window (Cursor at First Page then click Edit -> Node -> Create)

Here, you can specify your title and page numbering

&SFSY-PAGE& (Page 1) of &SFSY-FORMPAGES(Z4.0)& (Total Page)

Main windows -> TABLE -> DATA

In the Loop section, tick Internal table and fill in

ITAB1 (table in ABAP SMARTFORM calling function) INTO ITAB2

3. Define table in smartforms

Global settings :

Form interface

Variable name Type assignment Reference type

ITAB1 TYPE Table Structure

Global definitions

Variable name Type assignment Reference type

ITAB2 TYPE Table Structure

4. To display the data in the form

Make used of the Table Painter and declare the Line Type in Tabstrips Table

e.g. HD_GEN for printing header details,

IT_GEN for printing data details.

You have to specify the Line Type in your Text elements in the Tabstrips Output options.

Tick the New Line and specify the Line Type for outputting the data.

Declare your output fields in Text elements

Tabstrips - Output Options

For different fonts use this Style : IDWTCERTSTYLE

For Quantity or Amout you can used this variable &GS_ITAB-AMOUNT(12.2)&

5. Calling SMARTFORMS from your ABAP program

REPORT ZSMARTFORM.

  • Calling SMARTFORMS from your ABAP program.

  • Collecting all the table data in your program, and pass once to SMARTFORMS

  • SMARTFORMS

  • Declare your table type in :-

  • Global Settings -> Form Interface

  • Global Definintions -> Global Data

  • Main Window -> Table -> DATA

*

*

TABLES: MKPF.

DATA: FM_NAME TYPE RS38L_FNAM.

DATA: BEGIN OF INT_MKPF OCCURS 0.

INCLUDE STRUCTURE MKPF.

DATA: END OF INT_MKPF.

SELECT-OPTIONS S_MBLNR FOR MKPF-MBLNR MEMORY ID 001.

SELECT * FROM MKPF WHERE MBLNR IN S_MBLNR.

MOVE-CORRESPONDING MKPF TO INT_MKPF.

APPEND INT_MKPF.

ENDSELECT.

  • At the end of your program.

  • Passing data to SMARTFORMS

call function 'SSF_FUNCTION_MODULE_NAME'

exporting

formname = 'ZSMARTFORM'

  • VARIANT = ' '

  • DIRECT_CALL = ' '

IMPORTING

FM_NAME = FM_NAME

EXCEPTIONS

NO_FORM = 1

NO_FUNCTION_MODULE = 2

OTHERS = 3.

if sy-subrc <> 0.

WRITE: / 'ERROR 1'.

  • MESSAGE ID SY-MSGID TYPE SY-MSGTY NUMBER SY-MSGNO

  • WITH SY-MSGV1 SY-MSGV2 SY-MSGV3 SY-MSGV4.

endif.

call function FM_NAME

Additional Fonts for your SMARTFORMS

You can create additional fonts and style with transaction SMARTSTYLES

This can then be define in the paragraph and character formats, which you can then be assign to texts and fields in the Smart Form.

The character formats includes effects such as superscript, subscript, barcode and font attributes.

Hi Dharani,

Smart forms is very similar to SAP scripts . This is also a tool which is extensively used to creat layouts and then a separate print program is created. This print program is used to create the output internal table which ibn turn is thrown to the smart form where the field values are displayed .

In the print program mentioned below ...an output internal table is created by populating certain fields from database tables into it . Once the output internal table is ready , then the function module SSF_FUNCTION_MODULE_NAME is called . Here , in the import parameters , the name of the smartform is given . The output of this function module is the name of another function module .

This function module is again called , in this examplpe , the name of the function module is "/1BCDWB/SF00000007" .

The output of this function module is the output internal table that we have created earlier in the program i.e.. I_YCUSTOMER .

SAP Smartforms can be used for creating and maintaining forms for mass printing in SAP Systems. The output medium for Smartforms support printer, fax, e-mail, or the Internet (by using the generated XML output).

According to SAP, you need neither have any programming knowledge nor use a Script language to adapt standard forms. However, basic ABAP programming skills are required only in special cases (for example, to call a function module you created or for complex and extensive conditions).

To create a new smartforms, transaction code is '<b>SMARTFORMS</b>'

Create new smartforms as 'ZSMARTFORMS'

Pages and windows

First Page -> Header Window (Cursor at First Page then click Edit -> Node -> Create)

Here, you can specify your title and page numbering

>Smartformyou can check this link here you can see the steps and you can do it the same by looking at it.

>>http://smoschid.tripod.com/How_to_do_things_in_SAP/How_To_Build_SMARTFORMS/How_To_Build_SMARTFORMS.html

>SMARTFORMS STEPS.

>>1. In Tcode se11 Create a structure(struct) same like the Internal table that you are going to use in your report.

>>2. Create Table type(t_struct) of stracture in se11.

>>3. In your program declare Internal table(Itab) type table of structure(struct).

>>4. Define work area(wa) like line of internal table.

>>5. Open Tcode Smartforms

>>6. In form Global setting , forminterface Import parameter define Internal table(Itab) like table type of stracture(t_struct).

>>7. In form Global setting , Global definitions , in Global data define Work area(wa) like type stracture(struct).

>>8. In form pages and window, create Page node by default Page1 is available.

>>9. In page node you can create numbers of secondary window. But in form there is only one Main window.

>>10. By right click on page you can create windows or Go to Edit, Node, Create.

>>11. After creating the window right click on window create table for displaying the data that you are passing through internal table.

>>12. In the table Data parameter, loop internal internal table (Itab) into work area(wa).

>>13. In table there are three areas Header, Main Area, Footer.

>>14. Right click on the Main area create table line by default line type1 is there select it.

>>15. Divide line into cells according to your need then for each cell create Text node.

>>16. In text node general attribute. Write down fields of your work area(wa) or write any thing you want to display.

>>17. Save form and activate it.

>>18. Then go to Environment, function module name, there you get the name of function module copy it.

>>19. In your program call the function module that you have copied from your form.

>>20. In your program in exporting parameter of function pass the internal table(itab).

*SmartForms System Fields *

Within a form you can use the field string SFSY with its system fields. During form processing the system replaces these fields with the corresponding values. The field values come from the SAP System or are results of the processing.

System fields of Smart Forms

&SFSY-DATE&

Displays the date. You determine the display format in the user master record.

&SFSY-TIME&

Displays the time of day in the form HH:MM:SS.

&SFSY-PAGE&

Inserts the number of the current print page into the text. You determine the format of the page number (for example, Arabic, numeric) in the page node.

&SFSY-FORMPAGES&

Displays the total number of pages for the currently processed form. This allows you to include texts such as'Page x of y' into your output.

&SFSY-JOBPAGES&

Contains the total page number of all forms in the currently processed print request.

&SFSY-WINDOWNAME&

Contains the name of the current window (string in the Window field)

&SFSY-PAGENAME&

Contains the name of the current page (string in the Page field)

&SFSY-PAGEBREAK&

Is set to 'X' after a page break (either automatic [Page 7] or command-controlled [Page 46])

&SFSY-MAINEND&

Is set as soon as processing of the main window on the current page ends

&SFSY-EXCEPTION&

Contains the name of the raised exception. You must trigger your own exceptions, which you defined in the form interface, using the user_exception macro (syntax: user_exception <exception name >).

Example Forms Available in Standard SAP R/3

SF_EXAMPLE_01

Simple example; invoice with table output of flight booking for one customer

SF_EXAMPLE_02

Similar to SF_EXAMPLE_01 but with subtotals

SF_EXAMPLE_03

Similar to SF_EXAMPLE_02, whereby several customers are selected in the application program; the form is called for each customer and all form outputs are included in an output request

*Advantages of SAP Smart Forms *

SAP Smart Forms have the following advantages:

1. The adaption of forms is supported to a large extent by graphic tools for layout and logic, so that no programming knowledge is necessary (at least 90% of all adjustments). Therefore, power user forms can also make configurations for your business processes with data from an SAP system. Consultants are only required in special cases.

2. Displaying table structures (dynamic framing of texts)

3. Output of background graphics, for form design in particular the use of templates which were scanned.

4. Colored output of texts

5. User-friendly and integrated Form Painter for the graphical design of forms

6. Graphical Table Painter for drawing tables

7. Reusing Font and paragraph formats in forms (Smart Styles)

8. Data interface in XML format (XML for Smart Forms, in short XSF)

9. Form translation is supported by standard translation tools

10. Flexible reuse of text modules

11. HTML output of forms (Basis release 6.10)

12. Interactive Web forms with input fields, pushbuttons, radio buttons, etc. (Basis-Release 6.10)
