Print any existing PDF-file directly from SAP (3.1I) using 'External Commands' (SM49/SM69) on Windows NT server.

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.
