Does anyone know of any problems saving a report as a WMF under Windows NT?
Here is what I have found:

Preview a report in Win95 and save as WMF, then insert WMF into a blank
document in Word 97 still running Win95 - Works OK.
Preview a report in Win95 and save as WMF, then insert WMF into a blank
document in Word 97 running WinNT - Works OK.
Preview a report in WinNT and save as WMF, then insert WMF into a blank
document in Word 97 still running WinNT - Does Not Work (image is blank)

I could find anything related on the Sybase development tools solved cases

It seems to be a memory issue. I can save only very small reports as WMF
under W95. Anyhing over 1 page and I get the blank page. I'll do some more
research on this.
In the mean time, you might want to report this to Sybase.
