The goal is to produce a single PDF consisting of a number of subreports. Some are landscape, others are portrait. The subreports may also be run as independent reports. The master report defaults to the width of the widest subreport, which is landscape. This causes all portrait subreports to spill over. Your suggestions / comments are appreciated.
I have deployed a report that is configured for landscape printing. It does print in landscape, however, only the first seven columns appear on the first page and the other five columns appear on the next page. Is there a method, like in print preview setup in MS Excel, where we can scale down the print (like to 80%) so all columns appear on each page?
All of my reports that are formatted 11x8.5 are outputting to PDF correctly. When I open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat, it appears in Landscape on the screen. However, when I click the print button, by default it is printing it in portrait. I can go to File-->Print Setup and change the orientation from Portrait to Landscape, but why doesn't it translate from the file orientation? This may just be a bug in the Adobe Acrobat software, but I want to make sure there isn't something I can do.
I'd like a parameter for the report layout: Portrait Or Landscape. So is it possible to set the page high and width using an expression or in code based on my parameter?
Also on a similar note. I want a parameter for 'Page Break After X'. Is it possible to apply a page break after my table group X based on this parameter? I know if I edit the group I can tick 'page break at end' but I can't apply an expression to this.
I am trying to print a report in landscape mode from VS 2003 from designer preview or at run time. The users don't want to change a mode manually. I tried to make width 11 or 11.5 in and height 8.5in with zero margins and 0.5in (tried a lot of combinations) - doesn't work! still printing in portrait. Please help! Thank you
I ahve a report, that has 24 fields in the layout. When I tried to print the reprot, it prints BLANK pages, in between and at the start. I have confirmed that the width BODY of the report, < width of the report properties. It still prints blank pages.Pl advise.
I have reports, set to print on Landscape and Legal ie 14 * 8.5. However, when certain users try to print the report, it prints it in Letter, even though the report is set to print in legal /landscape.
The strange part is that for most users it prints correctly in legal, only for some it is on letter. Any idea why this would happen?
So I have been asked by our sustainability person to create report from our printing data that actually shows the number of pieces of paper used. This is easy enough for single-sided printing, but when printing in duplex the software does not take into account that 3 printing pages actually equates to 2 pieces of paper. I know this sounds simple, but say I have a print job record that looks like this:
This is a print jobs that if done correctly is actually 21 pages( duplex printing). If the job is say total_pages =5 I cant just divide by 2 because its actually using 3 pieces of paper ( yes they are wanting this data don't ask why). How can I adjust some sql to accurately depict 5 pages, front and back, as 3 pieces of paper?
I know how to size my report to export successfully to A4 portrait PDF and I can position the report in the centre of the browser window BUT I can't do both! I would really like to be able to position it in the centre of my browser window AND be able to print to A4 portrait PDF. If I have the report in the centre (by adjusting the body to take up the whole screen and positioning the report in the centre), it is cut in half when exported to PDF. I can only get it to export to PDF correctly, if the report is aligned to the left of my screen in the browser. Is there a way to move the body to the centre or any other tricks?
I have a problem where i need to show 18 columns in 1 row but can get it in one row, the most the user wants is 2 rows but the first 4 columns cant be touched. eg. row1 Col1 Col2 Col3 Col4 Col5 Col6 Col7 Col8 Col9 Col10 Col11 row2 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25
I am kind of lost on how to show this in a nice format.
Does anyone have any creative idea, as i would like to capture the users. The Fields are also lengthy so it makes it difficult.
I've thrown together a homegrown Reporting Services viewer that is basically a wrapper for a browser control. It will reside in our app alongside the Crystal report viewer until we have phased out Crystal.
I have a report that I need to develop in landscape format. Also I need it to be landscape when converting to PDF and taking printouts. let me know the exact height and width measurements in inches for the report and report body?
It appears to work fine on my end however on my clients end, whenever they try to print a report that displays perfectly within the report viewer to their printer by selecting the printer button in the report it never ends up printing.., however if they go into printer setup and change the page range to print from all pages to just maybe one page and then select the print button it seems to print fine..
The printer seems to receive the information as the light flashes but no page kick out when all pages is selected to print..
I have several reports that are set to landscape but then lose this layout when a linked report is created from the original report. I found the link below describing Brian Welcker's workaround and my question is where do you place the vb.net code he provided?
I have a reporting viewer in a windows form that behaves very strange. When I open the form and run the report it shows up nicely in the report viewer. If I print the report it only prints one page. When i print the report a second time the whole report is printed. Next I'll change the report parameters and run the report, then it shows up nicely in the viewer, but when I print the report the first report is printed.
Hi, I am having problems printing a new table we added to an existing report. When I preview the report in Visual Studio everything looks good. But when I click the print layout view button the "header" portion of the report shows on one page and the detail shows up on another. Has anyone seen this happen before?
I have developed report(SSRS 2005) using Matrix control and Chart, on web in works good, but when user prints the report it cuts matrix and prints it on separate pages.
my requirement is to print every thing in a single page, no matter how much data i has. i tried landscape print (by changing width 11 and height to 8.5) but no result, does any one know the solution....?
I am running SSRS 2005, rendering reports locally using a report viewer. Rather than direct the viewer to an .rdlc file, I use an XMLDocument. A few of my reports have a large image in the background that needs to be invisible when the report prints. This was straightforward - I just use a report parameter and set the visible state of the image to the value of the parameter. The hard part is getting the report to print without an error.
Initially, I render the report with the following code:
End Sub This code works fine. I have hidden the print button on the report viewer, and to print, the user must press my button which runs the following code. Private Sub PrintReport()
Try _Param(0) = New Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.ReportParameter("ImageVisible", "False") ShowReport()
Catch ex As Exception MsgBox(ex.ToString) End Try
End Sub Resetting the parameter and re-displaying the report works fine on its own. The PrintDialog method works fine on its own. When combined in the same Sub like this, I get the following error: "Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object". Does anyone know how I could get it to print without an error? I would be very grateful for any help.
I am rendering the report from remote server and I am displaying it. when I try to print the report from my application it is printin properly. but when I try to print it from IIS it is showing an error message that "No printers are Installed ". I did not specify any printer name in my application. How can I resolve this problem.

I have a report that only has one page when previewed but when it's printed there are two pages. This is a problem because I get two printed pages to my report with "1 of 2 pages" on the first page and "2 of 2 pages" on the second but there is only data on the first page and the second has header and footer but no data.
Is there a way to force the report to fit everything on one page? Or some other setting I am missing?

I have e-mails saved in a SQL database with all HTML formatting information. To remove all HTML formatting I craeted a function on the RS report:
Public Shared Function removeHtmlChar(ss) try Dim l as integer Dim i as integer Dim ch as string Dim x as integer Dim t as string t = "" l=len(ss) for i=1 to l ch=mid(ss,i,1) x=i if(ch="<") then x=i do while(mid(ss,x,1)<>">") x=x+1 loop else t=t & ch end if i=x next t = t.Replace("nbsp;"," ") removeHtmlChar = t catch removeHtmlChar = "" end try End Function
When I look at the report on the screen the report is showed correct. If I print or export the report it add a lot of line breaks in the e-mail text. Why does it not print it as it looks at the screen?
Is it possible to setup different font size when a user is browsing or printing a report?
I have a lot of data to print on a report and i need tu use a font size of 7pt which is fine for printing but when the user is looking at the report on the browser a font size of 7pt is a bit too small and the bold doesn't work.
I have report with a table, that generates rows to more than 1 page. When the user prints the report, each page should show the table header. Presently or by default , the table header is shown(printed) only on the first page.
I need to create address labels from report builder. I can create the same from report designer using list box and text boxes. But not able to create the same from report builder as it is supporting only one layout - table (Columnar) for table type. Can any one help me to place the filelds in row wise rather than column wise.
SUBREPORT (License info to the right) SHOULD PRINT TO RIGHT OF ADDRESS INFORMATION ON LEFT. LIKE THIS...
Name ABC-12345 Address line 1 DEF-12345 Address line 2 GH1-12345 City, State Zipcode
The data is from one table and looks like this. Both the main report and subreport use a shared data souce.
Name Address line 1 City State Zipcode License ------------- ------------------- ------------- --------- ---------- --------- Joe Schmoe 123 Maple Street Clearwater Florida 33777 ABC-12345 Joe Schmoe 123 Maple Street Clearwater Florida 33777 DEF-12345 Joe Schmoe 123 Maple Street Clearwater Florida 33777 GHI-12345
All lines are header lines. Subreport has been placed in top header line. IT IS PRINTING SIMILAR TO THIS BUT SHOULD PRINT AS FIRST STATED ABOVE...
Name ABC-12345 DEF-12345 GH1-12345 Address line 1 Address line 2 City, State Zipcode
ISSUE: I would like the subreport to PRINT ALONG WITH the address information to its left. In Crystal Report a subreport could "Underlay Following Sections" - a wonderful feature Microsoft maybe should have copied. Is there a way to duplicate "underlay" behavior in SQL Reporting ? Thanks.
UPDATE: Coworker found workaround. Can concatenate Name, Adress line 1, Address line 2, City, State and Zipcode into one field. Would still like to know a more straightforward way.
