Hello

I have a pdf sap table document that has been extracted from the ABAP dictionary and I want to know how to get this document for a different table.

Since I can't attach the document here I will give a brief description:

The header reads:
ABAP Dictionary    Rel.45B    EKKN
The information contained within reads:
EKKN
Short Description: Account Assignment in Purchasing Document
Transparent table
Active version

General Information
Development class:ME
Last changed by:SAP
Last date of change: 21.07.2001
Delivery class:A
Table maintenace not allowed

Technical Settings
Data class:APPL1
etc

Field Structure
etc

Then the table structure is printed with the field name, text, length etc

Finally it has some information regarding reference fields, fields with conversion routines, input checks, secondary indexes etc.

Thanks
Perth

Hi
Use transaction SE84.

Select database objects-> table

and insert your table name and execute.

Now select your table and from menu select Tables-> Print

Now enter your printer and deselect the print immidiately and execute.

Now go to transaction SP01 and see your spool request number.

Now you will have to create a Program to export this data to PDF file.


In your program call function module 'CONVERT_OTFSPOOLJOB_2_PDF'.

By this you will get your data in PDF format.
after this you will have to open a new file with .pdf extension
and transfer this PDF data from above function module to that file.

Thus you will have all information in PDF format.

If you have a printer set which can prints in to a file then you can use program RSTXPDF4 to convert your spool to PDF.

Hope this helps you.

Dear  perthngreville ,  sharadd

I would like to just add to sharadd answer.

You can use report RSTXPDFT4 (execute from tcode: SE38) to convert spool request to PDF.
