Q

Fixing a common OPEN_FORM and START_FORM error in SAPscript

Expert Mark Smithson explains how to fix a common error in SAPscript.

I am getting an error in SAPscript: "START_FORM is invalid and OPEN_FORM is missing." Why am I getting this error?
I suspect that your print program is attempting to call a non-existent form in your SAP system/client. Next time you print this form, set a break-point at function modules OPEN_FORM and START_FORM to see the name of the form being called. Regardless of the issue, you should find what you need to do with this approach.
