Data Report: Orientation

  • 12 years ago


    I want to adjust my data report to be landscape type of Orientation. But the problem is most code that i found is as below:

    With myRpt
         .Orientation = rptOrientLandscape

    End With

    However, when i tried it, it keep coming out the same error message variable not defined and pointed to --> rptOrientLandscape.

    Can someone help me? Thanks

    Printer is the object defined for printing in VB, as I recall (may be switched.)

    Printer.Orientation = 1

    Printer.Orientation = 2

    I don't understand the code where myRpt is hidden and refreshed (why to refresh something hidden?).

    I will try it later. The code that I <quote> is not something that i come out with. I found it in moth sites that i looked into, i also do not understand.

    You need to dowload servece pack to work that code

    There was a bug in the DataReports that does not aloow you to make it landscape

    Microsoft fixed it in VisualBasic serveice pack download service pack from microsoft  it is free

      Here is something that could help. use Pagset.dll, it can be downloaded in Microsoft Downloads.

      It's the only solution iv'e ever known. We have the same problem since I develop customize systems.

      Just try and have fun...

    thank you for the suggest, I've the same problem (I can't use 'rptOrientLandScape' because the vb compiler tell me "variable undefined").  I would like to know which service pack I have to download, I'm just downloading 5.0, I don't find service pack 6.0 in my language(italian), I hope so my code working, I'm reading the bug fixes with sp 6 but no one can be useful for my problem.
    Thanks, Vale
