Convert SAPScript or ABAP lists to PDF format

SAP has provided a standard program in 4.6C which you can use to convert any Spool request or ABAP Lists to a PDF File.

SAP has provided a standard program in 4.6C, RSTXPDFT4, which you can use to convert any Spool request or ABAP Lists to a PDF File. This proved to be quite useful as we can save reports and other printouts in read-only format (PDF). This could be a temporary solution for many reports/formats which need to be communicated beyond company's boundaries - like vendors/customers/partners/legal advisors and so on. The program is tested in...

4.6C, but will probably work with earlier versions as well.

 

REPORT RSTXPDFT4 line-size 80.

* Read spool job contents (OTF or ABAP list) and convert
* to PDF, download PDF
