ME9F Multiple PO Printing

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hello Friends,

Have a requirement to take multiple purchase orders printouts from ME9F transaction. If we run ME9F transaction it will give us the list of all the PO's. From here we will select the Purchase order/s, and click on Output Message button. This will give us the print dialog pop-up. Now the problem is if a user selects 50 Purchase orders then he has to click on print button 50 times that along with writing 50 times printer name!!!

Need a solution for this as to how can we take 50 printouts by clicking once on print button

Issue resolved. Flag Concept and the number of line items allowed me to display only once print pop-up, thereby allowing me control the 1st and last form. The below link was very helpful. All thanks to SAP Library.

Hi Varun,

To avoid the pop up you should maintain the below setting for output device.

For the given output type goto the Acess Method tab and

i. Select Host Spool Access Method  as F

ii. Host Printer as _Default

iii. Tick the checkbox No devise selection at frontend.

You can create the separate output devise for bachground printing.

Thanks Rajesh for your suggestion. But if I do this then it will get affected for other transactions i.e., it won't ask for print dialog in ME23N, or VA01, etc.

You can ask the ABAPER to change the driver program and put a check on T-Code Level.

If the T-Code is ME9F he can fill the default printer in the TDPARAM parameter and call with NO-Dialog option.

I hope it helps

You are right Varun, that is why I mentioned to create a separate output devise for bachground printing.

This ouput devise will be maintained in the POs which needs to be printed via mass prinitng.

Hi,

Did you test the single PO print scenario after implementing your logic?

No Purnand, I have created a custom smartform which is being called by the routine that is maintained via NACE setting.
