  • From SAP NetWeaver 2004 (SAP Web AS 6.40), a new forms technology is available in addition to SAPscript and Smart Forms: SAP Interactive Forms by Adobe. As there are restrictions for the use of delivered standard forms for printing scenarios in SAP ERP 2004 and SAP ERP 2005, please make sure to have read SAP Notes 735050 and 894389 before booking BC480.
  • The tool as such is officially called "SAP Interactive Forms by Adobe" even when used in pure printing scenarios. Course BC480 covers only such printing scenarios. It does not deal with interactive scenarios or with the integration into web applications.
  • This class covers basic knowledge on printing scenarios and does not handle application-details or customizing-details.
