The "printing" of lists means the list output is not put in the list buffer for screen lists, instead it is passed, page by page, to the SAP spool system. After a page has been passed, it is deleted from the ABAP runtime environment and only exists in the SAP spool system. The size of a print list is therefore only limited by the intake capacity of the spool system, and can be very large. On the other hand, during the creation of print lists it is not possible to refer to previous pages.
Each printing of list outputs is linked to a spool request. The list pages that are output to a spool request make up a print list. The print list of a spool request can be output on a printer, or archived with an ArchiveLink.
Therefore, for the printing of lists the switching on and off of the list output, as well as the link to the spool request, are important.
The following topics also play a role in printing:
