warning "401 columns too great for format X_65_255"

hey

While printing report list having above 255 column,

it gives warning message saying as below

"401 columns too great for format X_65_255"

In 4.6C, while printing its working fine without error,

but in Enterprise it gives above message.

After my long research, i found that

in print settings, if i set manually

REPORT PAGE = 65

REPORT WIDTH = 255

format = x_65_255 and print it goes fine.

but by default it was already set

as REPORT WIDTH = 401.

Actually my requirement is enduser always cant

set value 255 each time manually so how to

solve this problem eventhoug format is set by

x_65_255.

could you pls confirm this problem.

I hardly tried many ways.but could not find..if u need

more details let me try.

Ambichan.

    Hi,

    Have you tried using FM SET_PRINT_PARAMETERS in your report?

      Hi,

      Here is the flow:

      1. The FM RSPO_LIST_LAYOUT_FITS is called every time you call the print dialog.

      2. If you have mentioned the LINE-SIZE addition in your report, importing parameter <b>COLUMNS</b> is set to this value. Otherwise, a default value is set in it (in my case, it is 144). I think, in your case, it will be 401.

      3. The FM loops through all layouts against the currently selected device type (printer).

      4. It calculates something called PENALTY for each format (e.g. X_65_255) defined for this device type.

      5. Sorts the layout table according to this penalty.

      6. FM RSPO_GET_SIZE_OF_LAYOUT receives this correspondig layout and checks table TSP1D for the format.

      7. The final output columns are set to the value from TSP1D-OUTCOLUMNS.

      See if this helps. Do get back if something works out for you.

      Regards

    First i would like to appreciate for your kind assistance

    in my hard time.

    From your reply

    >>Now place your cursor on the Width field on print dialog and press Configure Print Dialog button

    << r u telling in Enterprise? I checked in 4.6C system, i cant see any button called configure Print dialog button.

    >>Regarding FM

    yes you are correct. FM RSPO_LIST_LAYOUT_FITS is called everytime. I accept that Line Size Addition in ADDON program

    may set the report width each time.

    But if this is the case It should work in Both 4.6C and Enterprise too, Am I right. but it works in 4.6C only.

    In Enterprise we get different width value. This is the problem.

    My client saying that not only ADDON program but also Standard SAP program does not work in Enterprise.However infact,i have not checked the standard SAP report programs.

    Since we dont have rights to alter inside the code, One of my colleague says that we can Use FIELD exits and replace the report width value as 255 and make it possible.

    But i dont know how to use it properly.

    Pls guide me how to..proceed here.if possible.

    I am doing testing in 4.6C here ..as i dont have Enterprise as of now.

    i know my snaps wont help much.but still let me share the things what i have..

    Pls check ur mail too...i will be more thankfull if you

    could just follow my message till i solve this.

    Ambichan.
