Hi Community,

This blog post has been drafted together with my colleague Rabindra Prasad regarding QR code display for GST INDIA E-Invoicing on Script and Smart Forms as many developers are facing problems to display proper QR code.

Please follow below steps to display it as expected.

In most of the cases, existing form will be altered to accommodate the QR code and other IRN details. This blog post is to fulfill the above requirement.


Implement following SAP note with the help of basis:

  • 2880604 - GST India: IRN Data Dictionary Activities for Non-Integrated Solution


After successful implementation of note and updating IRN details in J_1IG_INVREFNUM table from NIC portal, Please create smart style in SE73 for QR Code.

a. Select System Bar Code and Click on Change button.

b. Click on Create button.

Click on 'NEW' and follow below steps.

here we can adjust module size based on requirement.

click 'OK' and save in your TR.
It looks like as shown below:

Style for QR code is created.

Note: QR Code created in SE73 will be client independent.



Signed QR code provided by NIC portal is usually more than 900 characters and Smart form or Script would not accommodate the entire QR code string in a single text variable in forms as it has a capacity to hold 255 characters.


Smart Form:

1. Segregate your QR code string into multiple variables of type string.


qr_code1 type String,
qr_code2 type String,
qr_code3 type String,
qr_code4 type String,
lv_iteration type i,
lv_count type i,
lv_remainder_char type i.

lv_iteration = lv_count DIV 255.
lv_iteration = lv_iteration + 1.
lv_remainder_char = lv_count MOD 255.
DO lv_iteration TIMES.
CASE sy-index.
IF lv_iteration EQ 1.
qr_code1 = ls_irn_data-signed_qrcode+0(LV_REMAINDER_CHAR).
qr_code1 = ls_irn_data-signed_qrcode+0(255).
IF lv_iteration EQ 2.
qr_code2 = ls_irn_data-signed_qrcode+255(LV_REMAINDER_CHAR).
qr_code2 = ls_irn_data-signed_qrcode+255(255).
IF lv_iteration EQ 3.
qr_code3 = ls_irn_data-signed_qrcode+510(LV_REMAINDER_CHAR).
qr_code3 = ls_irn_data-signed_qrcode+510(255).
IF lv_iteration EQ 4.
qr_code4 = ls_irn_data-signed_qrcode+765(LV_REMAINDER_CHAR).

Pass these variables to your Smart form through your driver program or fetch the QR code and apply above logic in your Smart form.

  1. Create a "Paragraph Format" and "Character Format" using Tcode: 'Smartforms' , Select radio button 'Style' and create as below:


   3. Create Standard Text using Tcode: SO10

Note: SO10 texts are Client Dependent.

4.Create Window of size 2X2 CM in smart form layout and provide created SO10 text in general attribute tab as below:

Text Name: ZQRCODE

5. In output options tab, maintain your style.


Activate your logic, QR code will be printed as expected.



1. Write the same segregation logic mentioned as above and adjust your driver program.

2. Create Window of size 2X2 CM as per your requirement.

3. Create paragraph format for QR code:

4. Create character format for QR code and provide the system barcode which is created in Tcode: SE73

5. Write script logic as shown below:

Activate your logic, QR code will be printed as expected.



By this post we have provided procedure to segregate big string into smaller strings and actions to be taken appropriately on existing SAP Scripts and SAP Smart forms to display readable QR code.

Also make sure that QR code is client independent, hence it will reflect the same in connected testing client as well and SO10 texts are client dependent, hence you need to create separately in testing client.
