Hi All

I am creating a crystal report and am now busy positioning all the fields..However I am not getting an error:

its only these fields that are giving me an issue. It seems to be ones outside the margins?

I managed to position the fields in other sections outside the 7.8 margin. Is it a setting of some sorts? On the page setup I unticked Dissociate Formatting Page Size and Printer Paper Size.. and I still get the same issue.

Not sure what it can be..Has anyone come across this "issue"?

Thanks all

What are you setting to 7.8? That would be 7.8 inches which would be too large for the object.

Dissociate has mostly nothing to do with this, that is to remove the specific printer from the report dependency. It's actually better to leave it on.

Try using a custom paper size and go to 14 inch width and see if that works.

Otherwise need more info on what and how you are setting the objects.

Hi Don..

I am setting the X and Y position on the layout.

the width of the objects are 0.917in. Your suggestion did help with the issue. I made the paper size 14 inches and will change it back after the design is eliminate the extra white space.

Thanks a mil
