SAP Scripts Output Area - SAP Scripts

What is SAP Scripts Output Area?

There are different types of output areas available in the text in the main window, you can select one from below:
  • Upper margin (Top area of the main window)
  • Bottom margin (Lower area of the main window)
  • Body of main window (Area in between the top area and the lower margin)

Upper Margin

It is must that top area always appears at the beginning of the main window in page layout. While top area can be used to automatically output headings on the alternative pages for tables to cover multiple pages.
The output available in the upper margin area with the print program is not formatted at once, but stored internally in SAP script initially. Formatting is done immediately once the print program writes text into the Body area. Then variables are retrieved and replaced in that moment as well.
Here the main body area of the main window is filled before the program reaches the definition part of the upper margin. Here this definition is used as the top area for the coming page. It is also mentioned that it is it difficult to delete a heading in the Top area after writing text into the Body area.

Bottom Margin

The Bottom margin appears at the end of the Main window. The Bottom area is for the current page is known as when you complete the output of the body area. When there is not enough space left on the page, then the Bottom area text of the output is produced on the next page of the page layout.
If the print program delivers the output text to the Bottom area of the Main window, then it memorizes these lines for subsequent pages (just like Top lines). These lines are used to know the space the Bottom area requires and the space left for the Body area. Then it replaces the variables set in the Bottom area for the current page.
