The main difference between the two formats is that SAPscript documents are device-specific, i. SAPscript documents can therefore be sent only to those devices that have a font metric identical to the layout. The ABAP list data, on the other hand, is device-independent, which means that no device-specific layout is provided when the list is sent.
Lists use only font types with a fixed character width. The organization of the text into lines is determined by the ABAP report, which generates the lists. It is part of all products in the DocBridge seriesso that companies that use Compart solutions off not require any external software to prepare SAP data for printing.
The entire process is supported by a single source — through the application and the corresponding output filters. Compart has therefore tapped into a market segment with a high potential sales volume: A major advantage of the Compart filter is that abaap supports Unicode and barcode, meaning that documents with these features can orf be printed on any computer without installing an extra module. Common printers used by major manufacturers are usually not barcode – and Unicode-compatible.
To print such documents, printers need to be equipped with a special hardware module — which quickly becomes xbap significant cost factor in large companies with lots of printers. Some MFF filters read files in different formats input filters while others are used to write files in the respective output format output filters.
In many cases, a format is supported for both input and output. The strength of the Compart MFF architecture is its ability to quickly and effectively convert documents in various formats into others, or integrate them into a document using a specific format.
When converting one format into anotherCompart uses the shared object format, the so-called presentation area PAwhich is able to represent the visual data and metadata of all supported formats.
