Adobe Forms in Guided Procedures

Hi all,
I have the 'My First Days' Guided Procedure assinged to a user and am trying to customize it for a demo. I am trying to display an adobe form in a separate section in the My First Days Procedure and so far have been able to configure the action and block in order to display the adobe form.
When i try to add the Adobe form as a 'Interactive form' type, it gives me an error saying 'Could not retrieve template fields: Wrong document format or adapter mismatch.'
I have checked the adobe configuration and it seems to be working fine. Can anyone tell me why i get this error and what is the best way to resolve this issue?
Also, if Adobe forms work fine for manager self service in our systems, should they work fine in the Guided Procedures too ?
Thanks,
Bhushan.

Dear Alan,
Yes i have generated the form's submit URL... It works fine when the pdf is saved in the users desktop and upon clicking the submit button it kicks of a Process with a Visual Approval callable object..
However my requirement is that the Adobe form be submitted online during GP runtime.. The process is initiated by the User in the portal (not offline) who wants to put in a request. When the user initiates a process an Adobe form is opened to him in which he fills in his request. This request is then <b>forwarded for Approval</b>.. After Approval a digital signature need to be attached to the document and further on it needs to be sent out to other User Groups.. In case the request is <b>rejected</b> then the control goes back to the requestor who can either modify his request and send it again for approval or simply delete the request.. Throughout the whole process Print of the request can be taken at any time. Considering the requirements of Print & Digital signature i think using Adobe would be the way to go.. What do you think about implementing such a requirement in GP with Adobe UIs? Is it the right way of going about it?
Quite an interesting nut to crack.. Ain't it ??
Cheers

  • Online Adobe forms in Guided Procedures

    Calling SAP GP experts,
    Has anyone been able to successfully implement online Adobe forms in a Guided procedures. If yes, can you share tricks involved..
    The objective is to throw open an online Adobe form to the user to fill in.. The Adobe form will have pre-filled data (from previous Actions in the GP) and there will be the Approval process step after the form is filled...

  • Add Translation of INteractive form in Guided Procedures

    Hi.
    I have created an interactive Form with Adobe Lifecycle Designer. I use the Form in Guided Procedures. You can add translation files of the form there. But what is a Translation file and how can i produce it?
    Thanks a lot. Regards,
    Dominik

    I found this in the SAP documenation hope this will hel you a bit.
    If you would like to translate ABAP dictionary objects i know the translation will be automaticly done by the System. This will work due to the system variable SY-LANGU.
    kind regards

  • Security for Offline Interactive Form in Guided Procedure

    Hi,
    I have a senario that require a form to be able to downloaded as an offline form from Guided Procedure with security mechanism. I know that Adobe interactive form able to contain scripting like FormCalc and Javascript.
    I was thinking whether is it possible to get the initiator & approver information like User ID and Password and assign it to the variable in the form using javascript, so that only the authorise personnel able to login to the form whereas the unauthorise personnel who have the form but unable to login and edit the form. Please advice. Thanks
    Best Regards,
    Rayden

    Hi,
    I also have a similar issue where i have to validate whether the user submitting the offline form is an user who has authorisation ( a table storing user credentails) .
    Were you able to solve this issue of security in offline form.

  • Guided Procedures and online interactive adobe forms.

    Hi Experts,
    Scenario : User have to log into GP runtime, When he clicks the first action it should display the adobe form. He  has to fill the details and submit the form.

    I had a similar problem with authorization failed for the ADSuser. My problem however only occurs at night when the system is the least used.
    We have changed two things which I believed have now solved the problem.
    1. Make sure all j2ee servers in the cluster uses localhost for the web service destination. Our system was configured to use the central instace forcing all request to a single server.
    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/4f/a00d41921bf023e10000000a155106/frameset.htm
    2. Check maximum number of users in VA. Ours was set to only 300 due to some earlier performance problems. Default is unlimited I believe, so it shouldn't be a problem normally. (Global configuration -> Server -> Security provider-> "MaxUsersCount")
    My conclusion is that we ran out of login sessions during night time for some unknown reason, causing a authorization failed exception on the app servers.
    Plausible?

  • Problem creating an impersonalized Adobe form

    After creating the Callable Object for Interactive Forms in Guided Procedures, I am trying to create the form in the Administration area at "Manage Impersonalized Forms". After choosing the form, clicking Create Form and choosing Expiry Data and clicking Create, I get the error:
    Cannot retrieve template structure: Execution ended in an unrecognized state
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Florian

    I guess I "fixed" it by changing the setting of the tcwdpdfobject in Visual Composer at Web Services Security.
    I had the connection settings at "SLD", which was recommended in one of the guides. So probably the SLD connection was not working properly or the fact that it is a remote SLD, which has its own AdobeDocumentServices instance.
    So I changed it back to default, which points directly to its own AdobeDocumentServices. This seems to have fixed the problem.

  • Default email subject for Adobe Form from Netweaver Guided Procedure

    Hi everyone.
    When we generate an Adobe form from a Netweaver Guided Procedure, a default subject of "Interactive Form {xxxxxxxx}" is used where xxxxxxxx is the Process ID of the Guided Procedure.  Is this default subject configurable?  Where can I change it?
    If we define a custom email template for the form,  the subject of the email becomes our custom subject concatenated with the Process ID.  Where is it defined that the Process ID must be included in the email subject?

    Hello,
    I have no experience regarding the table of pictures, but you could try a workaround if you don´t insist of displaying the images. You could attach the pictures as attachments (you know, the little attachments icon on the left in your Reader). The ABAP coding for this can be found in SE38 FP_* and when you check the descriptions you should be able to find the one working with the attachments.
    Would be better than nothing I guess,
