HTMLToPDF Activity Extremely Slow For Generating a PDF File

Hi All,

I have a requirement of generating the contents of pagelist(having approx 1000 records) into a PDF format and attach it to the current WO.

To achive this, I have created a section and passing this section to a OOTB activity "pxCreatePDF".

I am able generate the PDF and attach to WO . But the PDF generation is extremely slow.

For this i went through the below link and followed the solution suggested. but it didn't help much.

Please suggest me anyother solution for speeding up the generation of PDF file or provide suggest any steps to generate a PDF through HTML code (Provide sample code if any).

Hi Bharath,

In Report definition's data access, can you please check on ignore format in export to pdf to see if that helps?

Also, there are few options to increase no of records / time etc to fine tune.

Hi Arvindmalav,

Thanks for quick response!

I am not using the any datapage or report definition's . So my pagelist created as part of SAP reponse data transform.
