Exporting - CR8.5, Char per Inch

Dear All,

Hi

I use CRPE API calls to export the report in to text format.

How can I set the "Character Per Inch" property from the API calls??

As I observe when I installed the CR8.5 with service pack3 in 2 different machines, one of them say it as 9 and the other one show it as 12. Due to which, the machine which shows 9 as the value always truncates the result in the text file.

Hence, I would like to control this property from my C++ application when I initialsie CRPEExportOptions.

Could you please let me know this as early as possible as this  is very urgent requirement.

At the moment, I use the peplus.h & peplus.cpp provided for Crystal reports 8.0 in my application. Is it OK?? If not , please do send me the corresponding peplus.h & .cpp for crystal report 8.5 with service pack3.


thanks very much
Sankar

Check out the support article http://support.businessobjects.com/library/kbase/articles/c2010330.asp  It has been too long since I have used CRPE so I cannot tell you exactly where it is at but maybe this will help.

Hi

Is it possible to put the registry key -
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\SEAGATES..\CRYSTALREPORTS\EXPORT\TEXTEXPORT
Value : CharPerInch

to under HKEY_LOCALMACHINE\SEAGATES...

I tried this, it doesn't work, I want to avoid putting anything under HKEY_CURRENT_USER...

Thanks
Sankar

For the use of others:

I used my C++ application to create the Key "CHARPERINCH" under HKEY_CURRENT_USER for any user who logs inside, and it works fine.

Thanks for your suggestion Stassau.
