Re: Nested Datawindow Report (Datawindow Printing)
Does anyone know if this problem has been corrected in PB 8
or 9? Please advise. I am currently using PB 7.
Problem: In case of large text fields, PowerBuilder not
printing the Data correctly. Lines are cut in half and also
not printing last few lines . This is happening on nested
Here is the link to the original documentation:
Original documentation :-) states that this is not a bug but expected
behaviour, so what kind of "correction" do you expect?
Philip ...do not show nested datawindow on composite datawindow !!
I have developed using EAS 3.6.1 and PB 7.0.3 build 10047.
i made composite datawindow within 3 nested datawindows
and all dw have 2 retrieval arguments.
and i retrieve result data using getfullstate.
in Client webbrowser, main dw is displayed
but nested datawindows is not displayed in main dw.
why not display???.. How can I do?
Thanks in advance.
Nested DW's do not work.
You will need to have multiple web datawindows or use a PDF writer like
Adobe to print to a file and display this in the browser.

nesting isn't supported for certain DW types like grid and n-up. Try testing
your DWs on their own to ensure that they work properly. Then nest them one

I'll guess that it is a bug. For a long time the DW has not been good at
