Use ABAP code to upload custom Smart Forms in your SAP system in bulk, which is not available so far in SAP standard. With it, you’ll be able to upload more than one Smart Form in one go instead of selecting every Smart Form one by one and then uploading it.

As an ABAP programmer, you have times when you want to upload your work whether it’s programs, custom SAP Smart Forms, applications, enhancements, or tables to a different local system or external media. You might need to take it to another machine or another project that could benefit from the work you’ve developed.

For example, you may have 100 SAP Smart Forms that you wanted to upload to another machine. The usual process through transaction SMARTFORMS involves uploading each form individually, resulting in a repetitive, time-consuming process. I’ve developed a utility with ABAP code that allows you to upload all custom SAP Smart Forms in one effort. There is no third-party tool involved; it is completely based on the SAP system. To run it, you should have some basic knowledge of ABAP.
