Hi Madhu,

start_form is used when you have multiple scripts (forms) to be printed in one output. It can be called many times and closed by close_form.

open_form opens the form for printing (called only once) and should be closed with end_form.

For more information, please check this link.

Hi,

Between the Open_form and close_form, you can call any number of sapscript forms, but separate start_form's and end_form's.

Open_form normally sets the print parameters for the script, so to avoid settingthe print parameters often before the call of each form, it is sufficient that you set it once and call mulitple forms using start & End form's in your program.
