Status information about the current form status (active, edited, and so on).
Before entering other header data,
7. Define the paragraph formats of the form. 8. Define the character formats of the form. 9. Return to the header and complete it. 126.96.36.199 Completing the Header Data After Defining the Attributes 1. Choose Goto Header. The Change Form Header screen appears.
The Basic data include the groups Set up page and Default values for text formatting.
In the group Set up page, set defaults such as page format and page orientation.
In the group Default values for text formatting, set a default paragraph, default font,
and so on. 2. Enter values in accordance with the guidelines. The fields Tab stop, Page format, Orientation, Lines/inch, and Characters/inch are assigned default values by the system. 3. Enter the format of the pages in the header data of the form. This format can be taken from the spool administration table using the transaction SPAD. The system always uses these values defined in the form header if no other values are
specified for the paragraph and character format definition.
To activate the form, you must enter the First page and the Default paragraph as Basic settings. 188.8.131.52 Passing Data to an External Program In the R/3 system, you can flag a form for external printing. If a form is not explicitly flagged for
external printing, the system uses application-dependent settings from Customizing.
To flag a form for external printing 1. Choose Tools Word processing Forms. 2. In the header data, choose Attributes Miscellaneous. In the lower part of the screen, you can now set a flag for passing data to an external
program. The flag in the form then determines whether to print via the Raw Data Interface
(RDI) or not. To overrule this setting, use the function module OPEN_FORM (see Raw Data Interface ). 4.2.2 Defining Paragraph Formats Before entering all header data on the Change Form Header screen, you must create the form
by defining paragraph and character formats. The system sends a warning if, in the header
data, you specify a paragraph or a first page that has not yet been defined.
1. Choose Goto Paragraphs. This takes you to the input screen for paragraph formats and their standard attributes. 2. Choose Edit Create element. A dialog box appears. 3. Enter the paragraph tag and a short description. The paragraph tag is created. The system sets line spacing, alignment, and units of
measurement. 4. Choose Attributes Font to define the font attributes for the paragraph tags.
5. Enter values in the input-enabled fields in accordance with the guidelines. You can overwrite the default font attributes. 6. Choose Goto Tabs to specify the tab position. An input screen appears, where you can define the required tab positions as well as the
unit of measurement and the alignment. In the standard version, the alignment is set to
LEFT (left-aligned). 7. Choose Attributes Outline to define the outline. Additional values are displayed that have been set by the system. 8. Enter values in the input-enabled fields. You can change the values set by the system.
9. Repeat the steps above until all paragraph formats are defined.
