Data Report Error; 'Report Width Larger than paper Width'

P: 41
I am using Datareport in a VB6.0 project with Access as backend. My code work fine with my PC. Also I have installed the project in several other PC's. (I have created setup with Visual Studio Installer 1.1). In some PC's while viewing Datareport it gives Error "Report Width Larger than paper Width" and in some PC's it works fine. Can anybody help me to resolve my problem?

Thanks.

Well, I guess there are two possibilities. Either the report width is different on those PC's or (probably more likely) they have a different printer setup.

Hello JNeelesh2007!

Just started playing around with DataReport, perhaps there is a way to mess around with the designer itself.

I am not sure what you will get as a result but I would try there...

If there is way you can get some the settings to fit your needs, maybe printing settings for some sort of outcome, it might be good.

I had to right click on the a certain report to get text bold. Give that a try...

Please let us know where are with it.

In a bit!

You might want to start by checking out (manually) what sort of printer setup they have. Just in case it's somethiing really silly. Like maybe they were printing some tiny labels, and can only fit three words on the page or something.

Otherwise, I don't know - haven't had much experience with manipulating the printer (or with DataReports).
