Hi all,

We use a crystal viewer did in VB6. When we run the viewer from Citrix the report loose the original orientation (landscape for portrait). If I print directly from my station (not under Citrix) the viewer works fine and the report keeps the original orientation!!!

Do you have an idea?

Thanks

It suggests to me that you may have set the report to use a specific printer and in the Citrix environment there is no printer of the chosen name.  So CR uses the default printer with its default settings.

Agree.

I have found that for some reason the LANDSCAPE setting seems to get lost when a printer is changed.

If it has a printer assigned set it to default to Landscape.

No the printer is assigned to Portrait by default

I understand you but we are in the network environment and it's not possible to keep only one printer with the default orientation on Landscape. Plus in this case the paper size is legal and I lost the paper size to letter!!!

I search for a better solution

OK Guys

I found the solution on the MSN Visual studio development center
>The solution is to set as default printer the Microsoft XPS Document Writer.

That's run for me
Thanks for your help

That is essentially what we were saying.  You had to have the same printer driver installed on all machines.
