Set report height to desired Height say 33 charaters. and Design you report with this height. Then change a little to your PRT as well.
If your old PRT looks as

printer "DFLT"

height 66
width 80

Convert it to

printer "SHORT"

height 33
width 80

If it still skips the page then
either
set autofeed of printer off via code.
else
Put printer code to set height in printer at header of this report. Set paper size in printer through code 5 or 5.5.

You will get the desired output.

Sandy

Pass this code (set page lenght to 5 or 5.5) to before printer code of first feild or label which will print at top of the report. and then pass code to after printer code to set page length 11 at feild or label printing at lowest of the report.

code "3" "C0"

In upper code first "" represent the Esc (ASCII 27) and last "" represent the chr value of ascii value 5. you can get it by

select chr(5) from dual;

C
-


for 11 inch,

select chr(11) from dual;

C
-


Both looks same but their means are different.

They looks same but their meanings are different, copy them to your PRT. The code i sent you was working with my printer. For your printer i don't have any manual. Look your manual for code and apply them to your PRT.

code "7" "C0" %%set page length in inches 27,67,nul, n n is no of lines

suffix the chr value of your lenght required to C0.

E.g for length 5

SQL> select chr(5) from dual;

C
-



code "7" "C0"

Hi,

I am uploading my PRT file, Most of the printer codes exists in it. Look one of the example here

code "7" "C0" %%set page length in inches 27,67,nul, n n is lenght in inches


in upper code the char values of 27,67,nul is already passed. You just need to add char value of page length in inch. Suppose you want page size 5 inch then this code will become.

code "7" "C0"

the value after 0 denotes page size 5 Inches. Please look in your printer manual, that what are the defined page sizes in Inches.

Hope now you will get the solution for your problem. I can't help more than this. Smile

Sandy

Your complete report height should be upto 33 in Characters. Change your report height to 33 and then try to print. Hopefully it will work.
