Overview documentation Structure of a Form  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

To output documents using the programming interface, SAP application programs need so-called forms. In SAPscript a form describes the layout of the individual print pages and uses text elements to supply definable output blocks, which a print program can call. General application forms are orders, order acknowledgments, invoices, urging letters, and so on (Example).

To create, display, and change SAPscript forms, you use a special maintenance transaction (Form: Request). To call this transaction from the SAP menu, choose Tools SAPscript Form (or call transaction SE71 directly). For more detailed information on maintaining forms, see the documentation Style and Form Maintenance.

Usually a SAPscript form consists of the following objects:

Header Data

Paragraph and Character Formats

Windows and Text Elements


Page Windows
