Print Preview dialog screen for Adobe Document outputs

After print preview selection, if an error occurs that will show the ADS configuration problems in that SAP system for Adobe Document Services connection.

For example, ADS: com.adobe.ProcessingException: com.adobe.Processin(200101) that I experienced in one of the SAP test systems.
The error details give following information for showing how to test ADS configuration with standart programs FP_PDF_TEST_00 and FP_CHECK_DESTINATION_SERVICE.

When troubleshooting, follow the steps described in SAP Note 944221.
First check the connection to ADS. You can use the program FP_PDF_TEST_00 to do this.
From SAP NetWeaver Release 7.0, the program FP_CHECK_DESTINATION_SERVICE must also run successfully (both with and without the checkbox selected on the selection screen).
If this program does not run successfully, there is a error in the configuration.

If the test program successfully executes, the ABAP programmer will see two pages of a simple Adobe Forms output in preview mode as follows.
