problems printing a report in a file instead of to the printer

Hi everybody.

	I don't know what happens when i trying to print one report in a file
instead of sending it directly to the printer. Here is what i do:
	I hace created temp.dat before.

dw_1.Modify("Datawindow.Print.Filename = 'c:\pedidos\temp.dat'")

After this nothing is the content of the file "temp.dat".

What's wrong?, What i'm doing bad?. Please i need your help.

I believe you still need to have the "Generic/Text Only" printer driver
selected as your default printer.  This setting you have done merely
makes that the defualt filename it will create.

Printing to file instead of printer
PB release - 6.5 Environment - Windows NT In the past, (pb 5.04 16 bit) we have been able to set the file name for the of a datawindow/ datastore with the following command: dw_1.object.datawindow.print.filename = 'filename' in order to print to a file instead of printing to a printer. When a dw_1.print() command was issued the resulting print output was contained within the predefined filename. Now that we have migrated to pb 6.5 (32 bit), what we see is the immediate printing of the Data Window to the printer. The file specified in the dw_1.object.dat...

Printing to a file and then sending the file to the printer.
Hi all, I'm using PB 8. I am saving the contents of the datawindow to a printer file by specfying 'Print.Filename' property of the datawindow. How do I send that file to the printer. Since the printer file is a bunch of printer commands, I can't send it as an ASCII file because it prints the ASCII contents of the file. I tried using dos prompt to 'copy' and 'type' commands to send the file to the printer and it didn't work. Would someone tell me how can I send a file like this to a printer. I would really appreciate any help. Thanks Junaid...

How to "Print" contents of a datawindow to a file/clipboard instead of a printer
I'm trying to let users copy the output to a file so that they can attach it to their e-mail and send it out. The methods I used (SaveAS, Copy, etc.) only include data but not the design format of the data window object. Essentially, I want the printed output to go to some other medium instead of the printer. Is that doable? Thanks in advance. Have you considered generating a PDF document? PDF will retain all the formatting attributes of the datawindow and can be accessed by anyone running the freely available Acrobat Reader software from Adobe. SDN (see link below) has a PB...

Page Numbering Problem in PowerBuilder 6.0 Nested Reports Printing
I am using PowerBuilder 6.0. I have a report that is nested 3 deep. The top level report is grouped on several columns.

I am using the general: "Page " + Page() + " of " + PageCount() format in the footer section of the top level report. If the main report goes to multiple pages on grouping without the subreport spanning pages the numbering works correctly. Printing is done from script using dwobject.print(False).
