hi,

we experience problem with all our report datawindows.
on PB9 with PFC9 there where no excess pages, when we
migrated our application to PB11 with PFC11, there where
excess pages.

we noticed this is due to the datawindows over extending to
the right side. we changed the units property of the
datawindow to 1/1000 inch and it was fix.

Question: is there another way of doing this without going
through all datawindows? What could have caused the excess
pages?

thanks

That's probably the interaction of the DW engine and the printer driver.

additional info on this is that we place it in a control
inherited from u_dw. when removing the inheritance and just
simply declaring it as a datawindow, there are no excess
pages.

we couldn't find any scripts creating this excess blank
pages.

follow up question: can it be affected by the resize feature
of u_dw? or can it also be affected by the zoom property of
the datawindow?

Wierd. Datawindow.Units is a property of the DWO, not the control. Likewise
the print properties such as margin. Did you look for script in the window
as well?
I'm pretty sure resize and zoom only affect the screen image, and print is
separate. You might want to give it a try.

we temporarily solved it by editing the pfc_print event.

we used a datastore and used sharedata to populate it, then
used it for printing.
