Print (PDF) output type to application server

Postby roortman » Wed Feb 26, 2014 10:45 am

Hi all,

I've been googling, but I can't really find anything that seems to fit me.
I have some adobe form output types, which I need printed directly onto the application server (in some AL11 directory would work fine). This way PI can pick them up and FTP them to a 3rd party.

Can anyone give me a hint or guidance to archieve this?

Thanks a lot in advance

if you have PI, you have a java stack. Have you considered using SAP Interactive Forms ?

Hi Snowy,

They are Adobe forms, however not interactive (they come from the Russia specific business enhancement).
I did however today find a way.

If you create a new printer in SPAD, and set it to 'L' then you can have the option from the 'edit' menu to fill in a command line.
With this command line you can make sure that when you point the output determination to this printer, it prints directly on the application server.

So now, indeed, I use SAP PI to move it from the application server to the 3rd party FTP server.

So problem solved really :-)

Thanks
