Stefanos Moschidis - SAP Certified Technical Consultant - How to build a Form


• Call the transaction SMARTFORMS . Enter a name of a new Form to be built

with SMARTFORMS and press the Create command button.
• The Form Builder appears on the screen. Any node can be selected or expanded
from the left hand side tree menu.
• Select the Form Interface node and provide the names of the internal tables
containing the data. (In this example we have a Customer table and a Customer's
Transaction Table connected with an one to many relationship).
• Select the Global Definitions and provide the names of two variables for
controlling the page break after finishing a section of a Customer.
• In the initialization tab of the Global Definitions node, give the code calculating
the number of Customers. Input and output parameters should be provided so that
the code works correctly.
• After expanding the %PAGE1 node, we can notice that a Main Window exists.
From the context menu (appearing by clicking the right mouse button) of the
Main window select Create -> Complex Section.
• This Section has data which are processed repeatedly and the Output Type (the
format) is Unstructured.
• The data of this Section are retrieved from the internal table I_ZCUST and are
stored in the data structure I_ZCUST in each iteration.
• At this point select the context menu of the Section and create a Text Element.
• Type the names of the fields of the internal table in the General Attributes tab. The
field names are enclosed in ampersands.
• From the context menu of the Text Element create a series of Program lines.
• This series of Program lines, (actually a single Program line), increases the index
of Customers printed by one (Variable INDEX_CUST_PRN). Input and Output
parameters should be declared on the appropriate fields of the tab (In this case the
Input and the Output parameter is the variable INDEX_CUST_PRN).
• From the context menu of the Program Lines create a second Complex Section.
• This Section has data which are processed repeatedly. The Output Type (format)
is a table.
• Specify a Table Width and a Line Type.
• Select the Data tab and specify the Loop in the I_ZTRANSACTIONS table and
the Where condition.
• On the Events tab select the Header and Footer events and specify a Height of the
• Select the Header node and check the New Line checkbox.
• At this point from the %Section2 context menu select Create -> Text.
• On the Global Attributes tab of the Text Element type the fields of the internal
table we wish to show on the form enclosed in ampersands. The Text node is
Appended directly (check the relevant radio button).
• From the context menu of the Footer Event select Create -> Command .
• Drag the %Command1 created and drop it on the %Section2 node. A popup
window appears and select After the node %Section2.
• So the %Command1 is aligned to the Footer of %Section2. Check the Go to New
Page checkbox.
• Select the Conditions tab of the Command element an set the condition that a new
page is created if the last customer is not reached by the printing process (I e the
Index of the Customers printed is less than the Number of Customers).
• Start another session and call the transaction SE78.
• Expand the Graphics node on the left hand side tree menu, select BMAP Grid
screens node and double click on it. On the right hand side provide the SAP name
of a new graphic and check the Color radio button. Press the Import command

• On the appearing popup window provide the path where the bitmap image is
stored and check the checkbox stating that Resides in the Printer Memory. Press

the Continue command button.

• The appearing screen shows that the graphic has been successfully imported into
the SAP graphics management.
• Go back to the session of SMARTFORMS and select the %PAGE1 node. From
the context menu select Create -> Graphic .
• On the General Attributes tab of the %Graphic1 created type the SAP Name of the
graphic and provide the Object, ID, Color attribute and Resolution.
• Activate the Form from the menu path Form -> Activate.
• The function module SSF_FUNCTION_MODULE_NAME has as its import
parameter a name of a Form created with SMARTFORMS and gives as output a
function module name. The latter when executed with table parameters the
internal tables of the SMARTFORMS Form, gives the final printout. The
following code is an example of calling the Form created on the previous steps.
