You want to use Myanmar (Burmese) fonts  in an ABAP based SAP system.


SAP Business ByDesign


Adobe Document Server (ADS) does not support Burmese fonts.


  • Display on a Windows based frontend (SAPGUI or html based fronted) and printing with a Windows based device type (for example SWINCF) are supported only with Windows 10. Note: Do not use 3rd party solutions offering input methods and fonts that are not based on Unicode. Only Unicode texts can be handled in a Unicode SAP system.
  • The SAP language code MY for Myanmar (Burmese) can only be used in a Unicode system. General information about Unicode-only language keys can be found in SAP note 895560.
  • Printing of ABAP lists may work only with device type SWINCF (as outlined in SAP note 1866491), but not with other device types including UPE (SAP note 1812076).
  • Print preview and printing of Sapscript and Smartforms are not supported.
  • PDF conversion is not supported.
  • SAP Interactive Forms by Abobe (IFbA) are not supported.
