Hi

A variable in SAPscript is called a symbol. There are the following types.

• System symbol (e.g. the number of the current page)

• Standard symbol (usable in any document)

• Program symbol (value from the print program)

• Text symbol (“local variable”)

The value of a symbol is text for using within SAPscript code and is represented by the symbol-name enclosed by ampersands. On seeing the tell-tale ampersands in SAPscript code, you sometimes need to figure out the symbol type.

goto any PAGEWINDOW's Text elements in Script (SE71)

from the Menu-> INSERT-> Symbols

you find all symbols here

System symbols

System symbols in a SAPscript form are comparable to system fields like SY-UZEIT in an ABAP program, and include these. The graphical editor offers three types of system symbol.

1. General system symbols

See the table TTSXY. PAGE is the most widely used. The list given in our BC460 training manuals is out of date.

2. SAPscript system symbols

See the dictionary structure SAPSCRIPT. SAPSCRIPT-FORMPAGES is the most widely used.

3. ABAP system symbols

For the ABAP system field SY-UNAME, say, the symbol is SYST-UNAME. [SYST is the dictionary structure for ABAP system fields.]

Sample code:

  • User: &SYST-UNAME&

  • Page &PAGE& of &SAPSCRIPT-FORMPAGES(C3)&

Standard symbols

Standard symbols are maintained centrally (in the table TTDTG via transaction SE75) for use in any document. Menu path:

Tools

Form Printout

Administration

Settings

Some standard symbols are SAP-standard and others are custom. Curiously, table TTDTG is cross-client although SAPscript forms are not.

The value of a standard symbol has to be defined for each language used. This gives a way to make a single SAPscript form multi-lingual.

We can take advantage to an extent of the central maintenance, though there is no guarantee that the available standard symbols will used in every appropriate context.

Standard symbols complicate searching a SAPscript form, since text like ‘Charity registration 211581’ may be hiding in a standard symbol.

Text symbols

A text symbol is declared and assigned to within the SAPscript code, and so obviously applies only to the current document. The command DEFINE is used, requiring /: in the tag column, as in the following examples.

/: DEFINE &COMP_NAME& = ‘University of Warwick’

/: DEFINE &WS_RATE& = &TAX_SUMM_C&

<b>SCRIPT COMMANDS</b>

ADDRESS : Formatting of Address

BOTTOM, ENDBOTTOM : Define Footer text in a window

BOX, POSITION, SIZE : Boxes, Lines and Shading

CASE, ENDCASE : Case Distinction

DEFINE : Value assignment to text symbols

HEX, ENDHEX : Hexadecimal values

IF, ENDIF : Conditional text output

INCLUDE : Include other texts

NEW-PAGE : Explicit forms feed

NEW-WINDOW : Next window main

PRINT-CONTROL : Insert print control character

PROTECT...ENDPROTECT : Protect from page break

RESET : Initialize outline paragraphs

SET COUNTRY : Country-specific formating

SET DATE MASK : Formating of date fields

SET SIGN : Position of +/- sign

SET TIME MASK : Formating of time fields

STYLE : Change style

SUMMING : Summing variables

TOP : Set header text in window MAIN

Hi,

The commands the we can use in Layout set Text Elements are called Control Commands.

These are always entered using /:

Eg:

To Trigger page break

/: NEW-PAGE

To Generate header in page for Main window TOP

/: TOP

/: ENDTOP

To Generate Footer in page for Main window Botton

/: BOTTOM

/: ENDBOTTOM

To Check the conditions

/: IF &PAGE& = 1

/: ELSE

/: ENDIF

Or

/: CASE &SY-UNAME&

/: WHEN 'ABC'

/: ENDCASE

Thanks,

Reward If helpful.
