SAP customers can use either SAPScript or Smart Forms as their SAP forms solution. SAP recommends you use Smart Forms for new developments (from 4.6C), because these forms are much easier to edit when using the Smart Forms graphical tools. Also, further development is planned for the Smart Form print solution.
For example, the customer can use a preconfigured Smart Form for the Purchase Order, and a SAPscript form for the Production Order (if no suitable Smart Form is available), or create the Smart Form.
While unnecessary, a userís prior knowledge of SAPScript forms can accelerate their Smart Forms learning because some tools are used both by Smart Forms and SAPscript (for example, font maintenance transaction SE73, SAPScript texts, and more).
