By Phani Diwakar Marepalli, YASH Technologies
In this document we discuss the how to achieve the
control levels in the Adobe Form (both using Table and Subform).
Go to transaction SFP and create interface by providing interface name.
A pop up window appears where we need to provide the
description of the interface and save it.
Define the user defined data types Types
definition under Global Definitions as
Define Global data under Global Definitions,
In the code initialization,
Save and activate the interface. Come back to the initial
screen of adobe form.
Now create the form as shown below.
A pop up window would appear where we need to assign the
interface name to form and also the description of the form. Press Save
The following screen appears.
In the above screen, we have internal table IT_VBAP under Global
Data, which is under Interface.
Context area is a bridge between Interface and form. Whatever
the information (data) we need to place in the form is to be placed in the
Now drag and drop this internal table IT_VBAP
into context area. Then only we can

Step7: Now go to Control

Drag the static text from the library into the form and provide the descriptions
of the fields (Acts as a header).
And also drag the internal table into the form (Here I
deleted the default heading).
Save and activate the form.
Execute the form. The output is as shown below:
We can also create the table using subforms if we need the
output alignment differently.
In the above scenario, we directly drag and dropped the
internal table into the form. But in this scenario, we use subforms to achieve
create a subform as shown below.
Renamed it as ‘Body’.
From the Data View, drag and drop the fields individually into the form as shown
the field ‘VBELN’ into the form as shown below.
And similarly wrap the remaining
two fields into another subform ‘DATA’
