Datawindow printing problem

In both version 5.0.04 and 6.5 if you set your computer to large fonts
the reports print out differently.  The font size on the reports is
exactly the same but there is more space between the headings and lines
are longer.  It is causing our program to print reports on two pages
when a user chooses large fonts.  Is this a know PB bug?  Is there a

This is known, but is a design issue, not a bug. PB 6 was changed to make it
more compatible with the Windows standards for font rendering. Do you need
to use both PB5 and 6.5 for these reports, or is it strictly a migration

Problem in printing datawindow in Powerbuilder 4.0
Hi, I am a software consultant working in Salem, OR. I am using PB 4.0 as front end for a client server architecture using distributed database with Sybase 10.0 as back end.

Datawindow printing problems
Hello, I have a DW with approx. 38000 row when I issue a print() I get a Dr. Watson or the app just disappears. I am running 5.02 with a Pentium 200, 64 meg ram. I have tried migrating the app to 5.03 and I get the same results. I also tried using a print job and the results were the same. This error has just appeared, we have been running for over 8 months without a hitch. Could this be due to the # of rows?? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Please, send responses to the mail address below as well as to the group. (I use the digest mode) Thanks in advance...

Datawindow Printing Problem
Hi, I have a datawindow that displays perfect on the screen, but puts the Total row on a separate page when printed. The whole report is only three lines long, but they are in separate bands. There are no hidden values in the bands and I have other datawindows with similar formats that work fine. I have totally recreated the datawindow from scratch and get the same results which would lead me to believe it is data related, but again looks perfect on the screen. This is very frustrating. I will take any ideas poeple may have. I am using PB 6.5, the datawindow is tabul...

Datawindow Print Problems
I'm running PB 6.5.1. I'm trying to adjust the height of a line in a datawindow and adding '~r~n' to make it multi-line. (This was in lieu of using autosize, since it left justifies everythin.) I'm having several problems with this method. 1) The report is actually run twice when printed. The second printing, the footer overlays the last detail line in the report and the group headers are missing. 2) At times, the '~r~n' does not force multiple lines, instead I get the funny looking squares and all the data is strung on one line. 3) Sometimes the detai...

Problem Of Printing DataWindow
I hit the problem about printing report with the free text showing on bottom of one page and top of the next being the same. For example, the last sentense on the page is "Here is line 55..." , The next page starts with the sentense "Here is line 55...". Hope anyone have solution or workaround. I, too, am having a problem with printing a datawindow. After my last set of lines within a group prints, if there is not enough space on the page for the next group to print, the last set of lines prints again at the top of the next page. Then, the next group prin...

datawindow print problem
Hello, We are currently experiencing a problem printing to an HP R80xi printer/scanner/copier/fax. The same datawindow will print to every other printer we have tried, but will only print blank pages on this type printer. We can save the print as a .pdf file and print it on this printer using acrobat. The problem is consistent across all client machines using this type printer. The code is a straight dw_1.print(). Thanks for any info available. Roger Gravley ALDOT By any chance is your DW displaying its text in a color other than black? We have an issue with one of our...

Printing a Datawindow in PowerBuilder
I have some problems properly printing a datawindow in PowerBuilder. When I print a document the printer will print the top half of the ast line on the third and bottom half of the line on the fourt page. In my datawindow I only have aboout four fields but the last one is a SQL Server "TEXT" field, so this field can store many pages of information. In the PowerBuilder Data Window I have the field set to auto size height. Another thing I have noticed that it prints differently on different computers, meaning it may print fine on one computer and not on another. S...

datawindow print problem
Using PB 7.0, (6.0/6.5 does the same thing) in some cases when placing a static text object on a datawindow side by side with a data field, the data field prints out much higher on the print page. I have to move the data field down almost the equivalent of a full line to get the two to show up side by side. I checked the properties and position of both the static text and the data field, and the Y coordinates do not match until I move the data field down. Am I overlooking something simple? This does not happen with all the fields, but seems to happen consistently once you get t...
