I want to store result of a report in a FILE .
My problem is that my lines have more than 80 characters
and REPORT BUILDER breaks line after fetch 8o characters
in each line .
You may do following:
in module level open property pallete and set -->
Design in character units = YES
open Layout in navigator, for each section (header, body and traler) set:
report width = XX
report height = XX
in system parameters (DATA MODEL) set:
DESTYPE = File
DESNAME = name_of_report_file
and i hope that's it.
We did all you said but it didn't make any difference in the
result of our report .
use a printer definition file
1 Set the DESFORMAT system parameter to the name of the printer definition file.
2 Set DESTYPE to File and DESNAME to the name of the File.
Past from D2K help
A printer definition file acts like a translator for the printer. It contains printer codes that specify how to handle bolding, underlining, printing graphical characters used in lines/boxes, etc. Printer definition files are text files (e.g., ASCII, EBCDIC) that do not require any additional compressing or compiling before they can be used.
Caution: Printer and terminal definitions are only needed when on character-mode platforms. They are not needed on bit-mapped platforms.
Hope this will help you.
We don't want to send it to printer, However we didn't understand what you exactly said.
Thank you and best regards,
In the object navigator --> Data model -->
under system parameters node check the desformat parameter
it must have been set to dflt change this to wide
and run the report again
Thank you for your suggestion.
We want to have raw with 133 columns in our file.
We did your suggestion and it become better, but we need
a value maybe more than "wide" to desformat parameter.
I will appreciate you if you introduce me a help for this topic.
Thank you very much
My problem hasn't been solved.
I am looking forward to hearing from you , Please .
