QuickReport 1.1 Problems
Posted on 1998-01-15
I'm having problems with two things when printing reports. First, the DBMemo adds 6-7 lines of blank space when printing and runs into the next band. To be more specific, I have a Paradox memo field, which is right above the detaillink band. If the Memo's data gets too long, it will stretch down the page (which it should) but it doesn't 'push' the detailband further down the page - so it writes 'over' the detaillink band. Is this a bug? and how do I fix it (without moving to QR2).
Secondly, I can't figure out how to align DBText fields so that one field doesn't print over another in the QR Labels template. Below is the layout & problem.
FName LName --------------> Layout
City, State Zip
Jim Sample ------------>Prints ok because he has a short name
Miami , FL 33333
StephaJohnson -----------> Fields overlap due to long names
San AntoniTX 30089 ------> Here too!
I don't want to set a fixed width field because I'd have the exact opposite problem - too much space in-between fields.
