Printing Address without using Business Address Services (BAS)

By Syed Abdul Adil, YASH Technologies

If our application makes no use of the Business Address Services but you still want to have country-specific
addresses, we must use ABAP coding to achieve this. It is possible to do this in the application program or in the
initialization coding of the interface.

Step 1: Go to Transaction SFP and Create an Interface.

Step 2: Define Import parameter under Form Interface.

IS_CUSTOMER_ID TYPE S_CUSTOMER


IS_COUNTRY TYPE LAND1

Step 3: Define Global Types under Global definition as shown below.

TYPES:
BEGIN OF ty_adr_printform_table_line,
line_type TYPE ad_line_tp,
address_line LIKE adrs-line0,
END OF ty_adr_printform_table_line.
TYPES:
ty_adr_printform_table TYPE TABLE OF ty_adr_printform_table_line.
Step 4: Define Global Work Areas and Internal Tables under Global definition as shown below.

IS_ADDRESS TYPE ADRS1.


IT_ADDRESS_LINES TYPE TY_ADR_PRINTFORM_TABLE.
IS_ADDRESS_LINE TYPE TY_ADR_PRINTFORM_TABLE_LINE.
IS_SCUSTOM TYPE SCUSTOM.

Step 5: Write the below code in code initialization part. Check for errors and activate the interface.

SELECT SINGLE *
FROM scustom
INTO is_scustom
WHERE id EQ is_customer_id.
is_address-title_text = is_scustom-form.
is_address-name1 = is_scustom-name.
is_address-street = is_scustom-street.
is_address-po_box = is_scustom-postbox.
is_address-post_code1 = is_scustom-postcode.
is_address-city1 = is_scustom-city.
is_address-region = is_scustom-region.
is_address-country = is_scustom-country.
* Address Format According to Post Office Guidelines
* Note : Refer Function module documentation for more information.
CALL FUNCTION 'ADDRESS_INTO_PRINTFORM'
EXPORTING
address_1 = is_address
address_type = '1' "normal/company
sender_country = is_country
number_of_lines = 8
IMPORTING
address_printform_table = it_address_lines.

Step 6: Save and activate the interface.

Step 7: Now create the form as shown below.


Step 8: A pop up window would appear where we need to assign the interface name to form and also the
description of the form. Press Save button.

Step 9: In Interface we will find the data that was created in the interface. We need to drag the elements
that need to be displayed in output into the content area.
