Page Size

Help!
I have created two new invoice reports:R5542565 and R5642565. Within the RDA I have both invoices set to print A4 size, yet when I run the invoices, R5642565 prints to A4, but R5542656 prints LETTER size. My problem is that this means one output starts 17mm further down the page than the other.
Has anyone experienced this before, or know of a work-around?

I think this has been the forum before. The page size must be set in the report template and the version.

Stewart,

I didn't experience that but I suggest a work-around:
1-Setup the template & version page size to Custom (instead of using the combo-box to select paper size, specify the Width & Height), and
2-Do not forget to select a valid Printer (and, assuming your office's B7331 generated the problem, ignore the *NOT SELECTED* message that appears in the Printer Selection, even after you specified a valid printer, saved the template/version, closed RDA, and opened RDA again, it is just a bug, fixed in Xe).
I hope this approach fixes your problem, if it doesn't, let us know :)

PS I have no doubt you ran both UBEs locally, or, both on the Enterprise Server, after they were deployed there, versions included.

Hi Stewart,

Try creating a new version as versions take the paper size from the UBE at
the time they were created.

Hi Stewart,

One of the ways is go to the version of the Invoice Program which prints
"Letter sized" and set the Printer and select the paper size again. It
corrects the problem in most cases.

Good luck

Cheers..sid

Thanks Bill, Adrian, Neil, Yathindra & Sid.
The versions had been set up when the report was set to Letter size. When I reset the report to A4, I thought the versions would have changed as well :(
I am now going to re-create all the versions using the correct paper size from the report. (unfortunately, now that it's printing to A4, I need to move the fields in the report, so they print in the correct place for the stationery)

Thanks for the help,
