Step by Step approach to create your first Adobe From

– contributed by : Indrajit Ganguly (SAP ABAP Consultant)


Note: Before to create Adobe Form, first you have to install ADB (Adobe Lifecycle Designer). Then you only able to create Adobe Form.
Here we are using a table type ‘YTBLTYP_MARA’.
1. Go to T-code ‘SFP’.
To create form first you have to create the Interface.
a) Click on append row and add the parameter bashed on Table type. Then active the Interface.


b) Create the form bashed on the Interface name.
C) Following screen will appear. Just you have to drag & drop form left side GT_MARA into the context area (Right side).


D) GT_MARA will be appear in the Context area. Here I am using only MATNR, ERSDA, ERNAM, and MATKL. Then click on Layout.
(If you want form here you can activate or deactivate the Fields, just go to the Fields name then Right click, click on Deactivate. Also you can create Node form here).


E) Following screen will be appear. Here see the Hierarchy table, click in the Data View.


F) Then you can drag & drop the Table into your Design View tab.
Note: Here we have Three kind of tabs, like Design View, Master Page and Preview PDF.
  • Design View : For example if you print like Item details, then we use Design View.
  • Master Page : For example if you print like Header details, the we use Master Page.
       Master Page will reflect in all remaining pages.


Here you can adjust the design


G) Here you can use Data Binding with fields, In this case this is not required because we have used drag & drop. Thatswhy it is already binded with respective fields. Example MATNR.
Activate the form.


2) Write a Program to Call the Adobe Form
Go to Transaction code SE38 and Create a Test Program “YCALL_ADOBE_FORM”.
