Subject: Can you change the font size within a data null? Other
I got the following question from a colleague of mine, but I didn't know
enough to answer...
"Here is some background of what I am trying to do. I have a report that is
currently produced through a data null statement with line length of 176.
This makes the font very small and when the report is faxed back to us, the
information is very hard to read and sometimes requires our staff to have to
do additional research before being able to data enter the information. I
don't know of any way of changing the size of the font within a normal data
"I created the report using line length 80 and this definitely increases the
font, but in order to fit all the information each record has to be wrapped
on 2 lines and this may cause confusion as well as raise costs with the
additional paper that it would require.
"I converted the original 176 report into HTML by just adding the tags
within the data null statement. If this would work, then I am thinking that
I could specify different font sizes for a couple fields. However, in HTML
format, I am not able to print the report on a single page - the right side
gets cut off. And I can not control the page breaks so the report is very
messy with random page breaks all over the place. Do you have any ideas
that might solve the printing issue or page break issue in HTML?
"If you have any suggestions or know of a resource that might be able to
help, please let me know. Thanks!"
