Can we change font size and font type in reports

Hi All Technical/Functional Masters,

We are developing some transactional reports in ISU. this report has 20 columns to be printed. On screen, display is not a problem but client has a requirement to download this report in PDF format and wants to print on A4-paper in Landscape. Although we have managed to accommodate all the columns on A4 paper but have to compromise with font size that are very small and not visible. If we download the report in excel format we are able to maintain the font size 8 and accommodate all columns after little format but same in PDF is a problem.

Can anyone tell whether we can increase the font size and change font type(from SAP standard to 'Arial') before sending the output in PDF ? Is there any property or utility that can be changed or used for this purpose.

      Hi,

      The font size is unique as customized in SAP. You can't change it based on the requirement.

      However, If it be a smartform or SAP script, you could have done it. But Its a report so no.

      Thanks,

      We customized a report. To download a report Its taking more than 15 minutes . Due to that its creating ABAP Runtime Error.
