Overview

Here you can find solutions for ALV PDF Print Version failures.

Do you want to set up an ALV Printing?

Note: Due to the fact that ALV Printing is very often updated please read the following notes which will be always up to date.

In a WD ABAP ALV, if you choose "Print Version", the following behavior  occurs:

  • The Application Server ABAP (AS ABAP) uses the RFC connection  SALV_WD_EXPORT_PDF to call the registered print service on an Application Server  Java (AS Java). All data and metadata is transferred to the print service using  XML.
  • The print service dynamically calculates the column widths and the  horizontal and vertical page breaks, and it creates a PDF document using Adobe  Document Services (ADS) or the BI export library.
  • The PDF document is returned to the WD ABAP ALV and displayed using the same  RFC connection.

For details please see the following note:
