hi..

Use

There are texts that frequently appear in your forms. You can use text modules to store these texts centrally in the system. This detaches text maintenance from form maintenance, with the result that you do not need to call the Form Builder to edit individual texts.

Hi Aravind,

In smartform there are three text types:

Text element : to enter new text in the PC editor

Text module : to include a text module

Include text : to include an existing SAPscript text

.........

The texts are displayed in the form using text nodes. The only exceptions are addresses. This uses its own node. The predecessor node of the text node determines its use:

Predecessor node Used to

Sub window Position text on one or more pages

Main window Display text in relation to other nodes in the main window,

it may cover several pages

Template Displays texts for table cells of a static table

Table Display table contents

Header and footer Display column headings and grand totals in tables

Event node Display subtotals in a table

Including text modules:

Text module of the text node is used to refer to an existing text module in the system. The text modules can be used in two ways:

STEPS :

1) Refer to the text module. The text then appears read-only in the PC editor and

is included when the form is printed.

2) Copy the text module. The system then copies the text of the module and

automatically converts the text node into an editable text element.

3) To create a text node , call the context menu for that node in the tree

structure that shall contain the text and choose create->text

4) Enter a unique name for the node and a description

5) On the general attributes tab select the text type text module

6) Enter the name of the text module in the text name field

Hi,

Text module (an encapsulated text) can be reused in several forms.
