Hello to all;

I have a problem in InfoMaker, that the truth, i don't know if it is a
bug or it is any unknowledge, I have 3 reports that separately work
perfectly (they are autosize height correctly when a line does not
contain data). But if i include the 3 previous reports in a fourth
reports, they are not compress:

- Problem me happens when to show report general (the one that includes
the 3 sub-report), these are autosize height but the length of the "
Detail " maintains not compress, but the peculiar thing is that I have
assets " Autosize Height " in all " Detail ".

What is what happens?, why reason is not autosize height, is it an error
or is it
necessary to make something special.

Thanks.

Hola a todos;

Tengo un problema en InfoMaker, que la verdad, no se si es un bug, o
tengo que realizar algo especial. Os comento, tengo 3 informes que por
separado funcionan perfectamente (se autocomprimen correctamente cuando
en una línea no contiene datos). En el 4º informe que engloba los 3
anteriores, no se me autocomprimen. Me explico:

- El problema me ocurre cuando al mostrar el informe general (el que
engloba los 3 sub-informes), estos se autocomprimen pero mantiene cada
uno la longitud del "Detail", pero lo curioso es que tengo activo
"Autosize Height" en todos los "Detail".

¿Qué es lo que ocurre?, ¿por qué motivo no se autocomprimen?, ¿es un
error o hay que hacer algo especial?.

Gracias.

Autosize Height property causes the band to expand if necessary, but will
not decrease in height. Therefore, insert the nested reports in the detail
band, then turn on the Autosize Height property for the band and set the
height of the detail band to 0.

I would add that the nested reports also have an autosize property that
works much like the detail band. If you size a nested report to 5", it
will only grow from 5", not shrink so if that nest report only fills up
1" of the 5", there will be a 4" blank space.

Bottom line, the autosize applies to nested reports too. They should be
sized as small as possible (in the y direction) in the parent report
once the layout is correct and moved such that each comes up very close
to other nested reports or objects that are sliding (must be some gap
but make this small). This in combination with closing up the parent
report detail band is as good as you can get it.

FYI. There is a restriction that for each single parent row and all
it's nest must fit on one page.
