Hi,

I am facing an issue with Report builder while generating a text output report. I have a string which i am displaying in the center of the report. This string goes more than 130 characters. But my report is allowing me to display only 80 characters in a line. and the remaining string is starting from the second line.
Can anybody help me in this matter? Please help me which properties I have change to get the desired result.

Thanks in advance.

Sudhir

In the Object Navigator, double-click the Paper Layout section you'd like to adjust (see the picture - I've selected "Main Section").

./fa/2775/0/

It will open Main Section's Property Inspector.

In there, set Orientation to LANDSCAPE along with REPORT WIDTH to 132 characters.

I hope it'll help.

I found the answer for this problem...We need to change the desformat property value as wide180 instead of dflt. so we can see the text output for more than 130 characters.
