Change in Paper Size - Not Sticking??


Legendary Poster
- Inherited UBE - Check
- User asks for more columns - check
- (db) changes the width of the UBE from 8/11 to 8/14 - check
- (db) adds new columns to UBE - check
- (db) runs new report, expecting the report to be 8/14 and have new columns - explicit language extracted / FAIL
- (db) changes the Version(s) to be 8/14 paper size
- (db) runs updated versions, expecting the report to be 8/14 and have new columns - <I won't repeat> / FAIL

Why in the world won't the paper size change on this system? It's like the 'system' is hard-coded to only PDF 8/11 sheets.

If anyone has a fix, you are doing better than me and the support desk at resolving this.

Hi, Dan.

Are you having the trouble running it on your local web dev client or on the server? If the server, I assume you built and deployed the updated object. Sometimes I've had to delete the temporary directory on the server for a changed UBE.
Ours are in folders like ...\E910\DV910\spec\runtimeCache\R* on our batch server.
Another thought. Don't really know if this takes precedence over the version setting but ... in P98616 - Printers Def - you can define Paper sizes, etc. Same program allows defing for a UBE which printer definition to use. May want to check both out.
