Column Error in Smartforms


Hi Abapers,

I have created a smartform for purchase order , have copied the standard print program and did configuration settings in NACE.

Now I am trying to view the print preview through the transaction ME22N of any purchase order, but for most of the purchase order it is giving error as : value for column number is greater than 1. Below is the detailed error given:

Value for column number greater than 1

Message no. PT006


You specified a number of columns greater than 255. However, 255 is the maximum possible value, since this is the maximum width of a print request.


Enter a valid value. This must be less than 255, but may also not be greater than the maximum number of columns for the chosen format. You can acknowledge the warning by pressing ENTER. In this case, the first 255 characters of each line will be printed.

Please help me out in finding to fix this error.
