Invoice Display/Print Error

Invoice Display/Print Error

(OP)
Hi,

I want to print invoice in landscape mode, giving this error.
Please find the attached pics relating to this.

Please guide what's wrong with this.

Thanks

RE: Invoice Display/Print Error

Hi

That message says it all really, the detail band is too tall to fit between the other elements on a landscape page, is one of the fields a memo?

I would temporarily remove the page footer and see it it fits - then put elements back until it doesn't

I'm trying to cut down on the use of shrieks (exclamation marks), I'm told they are !good for you.

RE: Invoice Display/Print Error

I don't know how you get this interpretation, Griff, as the detail band has one line height only. Note the detail 1band is the partof this screenshot above the ^Detail line and below the ^Page Hader line, not the whole screenshot. It seems to be too wide.

When you design for landscape, that also has to be the page size of your report. It's unclear how you set the Unit for the report, the ruler is not part of the screenshot, maybe you even turned it off.
Whether the reportis too tall or wide is not only evaluated at runtime depending on the printer setting of portrait or landscape, you set the paper size in the report design already. So go into general report properties and click on Page Setup, choose a landscape format (it may be called A$ rotated or letter rotated) and then you can design wide layouts.

Bye, Olaf.


RE: Invoice Display/Print Error

Olaf, I got that idea from the error message 'detail band too large to fit on page', it can't be too wide - you don't get an error for that, so it must be too high.

If one of his fields in the detail band is a memo, you can't tell how high the detail will be, so it might well not fit.

Also his page size could be corrupt - or the header and footer might just be taller than his whole page is in landscape orientation.

Have a lovey Christmas...

RE: Invoice Display/Print Error

Hi alisaif,

Did you check that under Report -> Properties -> Page Layout -> Page Setup the orientation is set to "Landscape"?

I didn't know that. Ok, if that's true then it only is a runtime error? It seemed to me this error happens at design time already.
If a memo is too high, isn't it's content simply split?

I wish you and everyone else taking a peek here at Christmas Day a merry Christmas, too.

Yes, it is landscape.

RE: Invoice Display/Print Error

It is a runtime error - at least I've only seen it at runtime, the report doesn't validate paper / layout until it is run.

Thanks it was a page selection problem. Now it is running perfectly.
