2104897 - Form Template is Missing for Non Localized Countries


Form Templates for any business document is missing in the Form Template Maintenance View for Non Localized Countries

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Work center Application and User Management.
  2. Select the view Business Flexibility.
  3. Sub View Form Template Maintenance .
  4. Show Active Forms.
  5. Search for the required form for example Purchase Order Form Template.

 You would not be able to find the respective form template here and there is no option for uploading a new template if the form template group does not exists.


The form templates are not displaying in the system is because the country scoped is a Non Localized country and currently there are no form templates provided by SAP for a non localized country by default. Hence no forms will be displayed on the screen.


This functionality might be considered for higher releases, till then if you want a form template for a Non Localized Country then you need to upload one form template for the respective country. For that first you need to follow the below mentioned steps:

  1. Scope other countries like US, Germany e.t.c. so that the existing SAP delivered form templates are seen.
  2. Then copy this form template As new variant for the Non Localized country.
  3. After the creation of the required form template you could de scope the country that is not required.
