Follow these steps!


Look at Note 317851 and in the 'attachments' section download the
attachment required locally. Then unzip the downloaded file - there is a
file 'Readme.Upload' which gives you the steps to upload the other file in
the zip - 'ZPDF1.PRI' (for example). Here is the relevant part of the

Use SE38 transaction in R/3 to execute report RSTXSCRP. Enter parameters:

Select radiobutton "device type"
Object name: Zxxxyyyy (this is the name of the device type)
Select radiobutton "File system: GUI"
(All other parameters with default values)
Execute report. Later, a popup window will appear, prompting you to
select the Z.....PRI file on the PC.


Now you can use SPAD to create a new output device with that type.

Pls follow the below mentioned points after uploading the
zpdf1.pr1 file to SAP system.

If you want to save to a file

1) create a printer on your PC using port FILE (print to file)(Dont forget
to set it as a default printer)

2) in SPAD, define a ZPDF output device with access method F and point to
the printer you just defined on the PC

3) Test print from SAPGui using the ZPDF device you just defined.

4) When SAPLDP comes up, it will prompt you for a filename to save,

enter a filename with a .pdf extension

5) Generally it will be saved in c:\winnnt\system location.

Hope this information will help u.
