Any one pls.can u help me what is the difference between smart forms and WWI templates..
You use Smart Forms to create and maintain forms for mass printing in SAP systems. Besides using the printer for standard output you can also select the Internet (by using a generated HTML output), a fax, or e-mail as the output medium.
In addition to the tool, SAP delivers a selection of forms for central business processes. This includes forms in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) as well as in the applications SD, FI, and HR.
Smart Forms offers the following advantages:
Smart Forms allows you to execute simple modifications to the form and in the form logic by using simple graphical tools; in 90% of all cases, this won't include any programming effort. Thus, a user who is familiar with the tool but has only rudimentary programming knowledge can configure forms with data from an SAP system for the relevant business processes. The result of the form development is a Smart Form. After it is activated, the Smart Form is similar to a callable function module in the SAP system.
The logic of the form is mapped entirely in the Smart Form. To print a form, you call it from within an application program, in which you retrieve the application data to be merged into the form. As data retrieval and form logic are separated, you must only adapt the Smart Form if changes to the form logic are necessary. The application program passes the data via a function module interface to the Smart Form.
To develop a Smart Form you use the Form Builder in which you describe the attributes of the Smart Form by using the integrated graphical tools, such as the Form Painter for the layout of a form page or the Table Painter for the design of table output. The form logic is represented by a hierarchy structure (tree structure) that you construct of individual nodes together with the relevant attributes. Besides using existing nodes for global settings you may create, for example, nodes for the output of texts, of tables, or of graphics. To make changes, use Drag&Drop, Copy&Paste, and select different attributes. These actions do not require writing coding lines or using a Script language.
You can check individual nodes as well as the entire form and find any existing errors in the tree structure. The data flow analysis checks whether all fields (variables) have a defined value at the moment they are displayed.
Ususally this is done by the technical consultants.
The Windows Wordprocessor Integration (WWI) program is an enhancement of Microsoft Word that is called from the SAP system to edit a document template. It dies not require an expert knowledge.
WWI allows you to create language-independent document templates using symbols. Various tools make it easier for you to create templates with the correct syntax:
You can design, print safety data sheets, standard operating procedures, trem cards, waste manifest and labels along with barcodes using WWI and can print in high volume to the tune of 37000 labels using HVP.
This is designed by the functional consultants.
I don't no what is your expatiation, If you are google it 1000 of documents available for smart forms and WWI templates
Here you can go . you will get some basic idea about these.
