Getting Hardcopy of SAP Data and Documents

SAP provides hardcopy output of the electronic data and documents stored in the system via the many SAP reports. The printed reports are formatted and organized for use on paper.

If you need a hardcopy of your SAP transactions or data, you should use these reports. For information on printing SAP reports, see Reports: Reporting Fundamentals: Printing Reports.

Screen Print: Macintosh

If you want to have screen prints of the SAP screens, the command-P print screen function is no longer available on the Macintosh platform. You can use the Mac OS screen capture function to take pictures of your screen. This function creates a picture file (e.g., "Picture 0") and saves it either on your startup disk (your Macintosh hard disk) or to the clipboard.

It is recommended that you insert the picture file into a Microsoft Word (or similar) document to print so that the entire image will fit on the page.

The Mac OS help provides instructions for taking pictures of your screen:

Screen Print: Windows

SAP allows you to print the SAP screen on the Windows platform using the Customize Local Layout button (not available on the Macintosh). This button is located at the far right of the standard toolbar:

1. Click the Customize Local Layout button .

2. In the menu that pops-up, select "Hardcopy."

Result: A hardcopy of the SAP screen is immediately printed on your default printer.
