SAP NetWeaver Newbie

Converting SAPscript (OTF) or Spool Request to PDF

You can do this using the report RSTXPDFT4. Run this report from SE38, give the spool request number as input and the pdf file names as output.

The following restrictions apply:

  • The PDF conversion only supports true bar codes for Smart Forms, which were generated with the new bar code technology with SAP NetWeaver 2004. In all other cases, the bar code is only simulated.
  • PDF conversion, especially of ABAP lists, is slower and is therefore not suitable for mass printing. However, you can speed up the conversion to PDF using the FASTLISTCONV option in report RSTXPDF3.
  • The font selection for ABAP lists is predefined in the PDF converter and cannot be changed.


  1. You can also use Symtrax Compleo to edit your spool requests to pdf and manage all the contents that you will be able to find in this pdf. Quite interesting when you want to easily edit any kind of form coming out from SAP

    If you have any questions, do not hesitate :)
