UBE Print Setup

Hi Guys,

This is a pretty trivial question:

Whenever I create a new UBE the default print setup is always

Paper: LETTER
Orientation: Landscape

Does anyone know how I can change the defaults so that it is always A4, portrait?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Jane,

The RDA gets its list of report type from table F986162. This table is not keyed and is therefore in natural order. If you were to remove all records from the table and then insert them with A4 as the first record, I believe RDA would then use A4 as the default.

This might be a bit of a risk as certain Denver programmers (they know who they are) may have hard-coded some printing logic based on the position of paper definitions in this table and not the value of the PDPAPT field.

Here is a SQL snippet that would do the trick:
(Note: it is written to Oracle syntax)


create table sysb733.F986162BAK AS (select * from SYSB733.F986162);

delete from SYSB733.F986162;

insert into SYSB733.F986162 values ('A4',29700,21000,'MM');
insert into SYSB733.F986162 values ('LETTER',1100,850,'IN');
insert into SYSB733.F986162 values ('LEGAL',1400,850,'IN');

commit;

Hi guyzzzz,

I guess the default paper setting depends on the default printer setup. I am
of the opinion(not experimented) if the default paper size and orientation
is set here, it should be reflected as it is in the RDA.

What do u think ?

Hi sidddddddddddddddddd,

Did YOU:
1 change the default printer setting to A4, then
2 started a new Report, and
3 discovered it had an A4 size?
('coz I did EXPERIMENT it and ... NOPE, a Letter sized report came in!)
