This note tells you which version of Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader you require.To use this solution, you require the Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader software on the front end.For SAP Interactive Forms by Adobe, we generally recommend the following:
Adobe Acrobat as of Version 8.1
Adobe Reader as of Version 8.1
You can download a free Reader version from the Adobe web site at www.adobe.com.
In Reader and Acrobat you can check the version and, if necessary, download an update: choose Help -> Check for updates now.
Note the following usage cases:
If you use Adobe Reader only for the print preview of an non-interactive form, you can use a lower Reader release (6.0.4 or higher). Note that the reader in this case displays one or two messages when you call a PDF form. One message offers the upgrade to a higher version. The other message informs you about new functions in the PDF, for which you require a higher Reader version. You cannot suppress these messages, but you can ignore them if you use the print preview only.
Also note that an older Reader version may not display an accessible PDF form correctly.
If you require forms for one of the scenarios listed below, you must use Reader 8.1 or higher, or Acrobat 8.1 or higher.
- Forms in Web Dynpro applications that are integrated at runtime using xACF (Active Components Framework) ZCI (Zero Client Installation).
- Forms in scenarios that use digital signatures.
Note that only Adobe Reader and Acrobat Professional are supported. PDF readers that are not from Adobe are not supported.
