SAP can create PDF-output (from 4.0) but have you ever tried to print a simple PDF file (in background) from SAP ? Here's how it works: Use Acrobat 4.0 (doesn't work with 5.0) and take the following files: Acrord32.exe AcroJs32.dll Acrofx32.dll Admui316.fon Agm.dll Cooltype.dll and put them on a directory of your choice. Create a cmd or bat-file with following contents: Acrord32.exe /t %1 %2 where %1 = path+filename e.g. "H:pdfReadme.pdf" and %2 = host+printername e.g. "HOSTPrintername" Create an external command, e.g. ZPDFPRT that has these 2 parameters. First execute the bat/cmd file interactively to get rid of the Adobe registration message. After that you can use the External command.
