After reading Schellenberger's article mentioned in an earlier post on
this subject I decided that what my application should actually produce
is PDF, not RTF as I originally set it up to do.
Changing RTF output in an application to PDF was a quick job, but it
didn't correct the problem of not having order values repeat on each
page. They still don't show up, although in PDF there is no reason to
leave them out like in RTF.
Can anybody confirm this or can it be helped somehow?
Apart from not correcting the order value problem I now also got two new
problems, which may be easier to fix, though.
The last column of one of the reports doesn't fit any longer and gets
moved to another page.
I suppose I need to set the columns width with a STYLE option like those
I noticed in the sample code in the first post of this thread.
The other thing is that column widths change from page to page ....
So much to learn ;-)
