Difference in total number of pages while viewing with XI 3.1 InfoView and BI 4.2 launch Pad

Hi All,

We've recently migrated some reports from BO XI 3.1 to BI 4.2.

If I take a report named X is displayed in 1 or 2 pages in XI 3.1 infoview. The same report X in SAP BI 4.2 BI Launch Pad, is displayed on higher number of pages.

Only thing is total number of pages is different when comparing between XI 3.1 and BI 4.2 Report.

Our analysis gave that there is an option "Enhanced Viewing " in the document's property in XI 3.1 that is not listed in the document's property in BI 4.2.

Did anyone got the similar issue?

    Enhanced Viewing option is not in BI 4.x versions.

    According to the BO 3.1 help guide administrator can define minimum page margins, headers and footers that are applied only when you view reports onscreen. This means that the maximum amount of information on report pages is visible when you view reports via your computer screen. To apply the page definition set up by your administrator you need to select Enhanced Viewing mode.

    is this the case with your BO 3.1?

    check if both the report in BO 3.1 and 4.2 are in "Quick display mode" or "page mode". compare the number of rows when display mode is same in both the versions and see.

    In quick display mode "number of records per page" are mode compare to "Page mode."

    Thank you Kumar

    The reports are in the same Mode ("Page mode")

    We don't have the problem with "Quick Display Mode"

    When i take the report named X and uncheck option "unhanced Viewing" then i have the same total number of pages but I want to know if this option no longer exists in BI 4.2 ?

    Users of our application want to keep the same mode ("Page Mode")

    See attached file (option Enhanced Viewing is in French --> "Affichage optimisé")
