...Datawindow printing problems
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
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
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
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 Problems!

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.
By any chance is your DW displaying its text in a color other than black?

I am experiencing a problem with the datawindow printing.

...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.

You should post to the powerbuilder.general newsgroup as this group is
for PB problems when used in EAServer.
However, you may want to look at making sure you have no controls (
columns, text etc. ) that are outside the normal printing area.

...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...
