Report formatting Disappears on Some Items when Output to PDF in Code

P: n/a
Hi -

I have a report that is 14 columnar sub-reports (Line up: Position-
holders in each of our 14 locations - Manager, Assistant Manager,
Receiving, Office, etc).

I output directly to PDF (using ConvertReportToPDF from this site -
Stephan Lebans)

The formatting - Outlines on some fields - do not appear on subreports
12-14 (Columns 12 - 14).

I tried removing some of the boxes around some fields, thinking that
it was just "too much" somewhere, but that didn't work.
Any ideas? I don't know if I have to email the mdb and data for
someone to figure this out. I have used the code to write to PDF
before - no problem. And this writes to PDF, just loses some
formatting lines.

thanks -

Sara forget about my code for a moment. Manually open the report and export
it to Snapshot format. Is the formatting correct in the Snapshot?

To verify it is not a Printer driver issue, setup the Default printer for
your computer to match what is required for your report(Portrait/Landscape
amd Paper Size. Now use my code to putput your Report to PDF.

Let me know.

I don't think it's the code - I use this code in several places and
have Never had a problem. But this is the first time this has
happened.

It does print in Snapshot format - all perfectly. I should have
posted that yesterday - sorry.

I set my default settings on my printer (Legal and Landscape were the
changes) and it prints fine. I printed an Outlook calendar page and a
page of a Word document - no problem - with the changed settings.

I returned the settings (Letter and Portrait) and the "lines around
the boxes" on the 3 columns on the far right disappeared again.

Also - though I think this is a different problem - (But just in case,
I'll mention it) - when the user ran the report (from her PC, and
would print on her printer) the report went to Letter size paper -
landscape. The PDF file shows 2 pages letter-sized.

Does this help? I am running an MDE (it happens in the MDB also), and
using A2K.

Thanks so very much -

I can't think of any way to do that. The user chooses a location,
then chooses people (from the entire list of company employees) to put
into each position on a form. People come and go often and change
positions.

THe table is Date, Store, then all the positions: Manager, Asst,
Hardware, etc. Date is a date, Store is a number, and the key to the
EE file is loaded into the position. Many fields are blank - it
varies by date and location.

If there is another way to do this, I'm interested to understand and
try it.

Sara I don't see the answer to my question to you. What happens when you set
the Default printer manually(via the Control Panel, to Landscape/Legal and
then use my ReportToPDF code to produce a PDF?

Finally, there are several report related issues with the first release of
Access 2000. Can you check the installs and see what version of Access you
are actually using? Menu - Help -About

release is to set your Default printer to match the requried Paper

Hi -

holders in each of our 14 locations - Manager, Assistant Manager,
Receiving, Office, etc).
I output directly to PDF (using ConvertReportToPDF from this site -

The formatting - Outlines on some fields - do not appear on
subreports
12-14 (Columns 12 - 14).
I tried removing some of the boxes around some fields, thinking that
it was just "too much" somewhere, but that didn't work.
Any ideas? I don't know if I have to email the mdb and data for
someone to figure this out. I have used the code to write to PDF
before - no problem. And this writes to PDF, just loses some

Then it is bug in my code. Your only solution until I publish the next

Sara I don't see the answer to my question to you. What happens when you
set
the Default printer manually(via the Control Panel, to Landscape/Legal
and
then use my ReportToPDF code to produce a PDF?
Finally, there are several report related issues with the first release
of
Access 2000. Can you check the installs and see what version of Access
you
are actually using? Menu - Help -About

Sara forget about my code for a moment. Manually open the report and
export
it to Snapshot format. Is the formatting correct in the Snapshot?
To verify it is not a Printer driver issue, setup the Default printer
for
your computer to match what is required for your
report(Portrait/Landscape
amd Paper Size. Now use my code to putput your Report to PDF.
Let me know.

Hi -
I have a report that is 14 columnar sub-reports (Line up: Position-
holders in each of our 14 locations - Manager, Assistant Manager,
Receiving, Office, etc).
I output directly to PDF (using ConvertReportToPDF from this site -
Stephan Lebans)
The formatting - Outlines on some fields - do not appear on
subreports
12-14 (Columns 12 - 14).
I tried removing some of the boxes around some fields, thinking that
it was just "too much" somewhere, but that didn't work.
Any ideas? I don't know if I have to email the mdb and data for
someone to figure this out. I have used the code to write to PDF
before - no problem. And this writes to PDF, just loses some
formatting lines.
thanks -

I don't think it's the code - I use this code in several places and
have Never had a problem. But this is the first time this has
happened.
It does print in Snapshot format - all perfectly. I should have
posted that yesterday - sorry.
I set my default settings on my printer (Legal and Landscape were the
changes) and it prints fine. I printed an Outlook calendar page and a
page of a Word document - no problem - with the changed settings.
I returned the settings (Letter and Portrait) and the "lines around
the boxes" on the 3 columns on the far right disappeared again.
Also - though I think this is a different problem - (But just in case,
I'll mention it) - when the user ran the report (from her PC, and
would print on her printer) the report went to Letter size paper -
landscape. The PDF file shows 2 pages letter-sized.
Does this help? I am running an MDE (it happens in the MDB also), and
using A2K.
Thanks so very much -

Sorry - my response "I set my default settings on my printer (Legal
and Landscape were the changes) and it prints fine." should have said
"and the PDF run with that looks fine.

Thanks. *Do you need a version of my database/code to help find/
resolve the bug (if there is indeed one?) *I can zip and email to you
if it will help you. *I love the solution - this is the first time
I've had any sort of problem!

Much appreciate the help and advice -

WOW!! I can't FIND a problem that fast - never mind fix it! I can
create them that quickly is about all.....I was still thinking it
could have been something I had done!

Thanks again. I'll look for the new code.
