Smartform - Print a space character

Hi everyone!

I need to print a space character in a text. I created the text within a window, and place the space, but when I printed the form, it didn't work. I even tried with ALT+255, but in the printed form, the space is replaced by "#".

Anybody?

Thanx in advance.

    • Like you said Ashvender, the space didn't have my defined paragraph and character format, so it printed out with the standard format, wich has 1,0 LN line spacing. My format has 0,8 LN.

      That's the problem. In my smartform some values were printed some lines below that it was supposed to print. The 0,2 LN difference was the problem.

      It turns out that the "#" character didn't apply to the issue. That character was printed because the printer didn't recognize it. I was trying to simulate an space.

      Thanx for all the answers.

      Regards,

      Andrés Sarcevic.

    Can you elaborate a little on what you are trying to do? Are you trying to put a space between two fields or....?

    Hi,

    I do not know if you had tried this:

    &SPACE& for single space and &SPACE(10)& for ten spaces.

    Please try this and let us know.
