Is there a way to wrap column data in PDF format in InfoAssist?

I could not find a way from InfoAssist. I think the only way it to add it with the text editor to the stylesheet.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

It is possible. However, after making manual entries to the stylesheet when you open the report in InfoAssist the customization disappears. InfoAssist removes them.

I'm sorry I did not realize that.. You might want to open a case with techsupport unless someone else on FP knows how to get around that..

Please try this:

You can use a Theme which is an external style .sty file where you can specify any Style you want.

The default style with InfoAsssit+ is called the : Warm.sty

You can add like a Wrap on one specific column by using the name, which is very useful if you have a large Alpha column like A256
TYPE=REPORT,COLUMN=MODEL,WRAP=1.5,$

This way you can use your own Theme and achieve this.

Steps:

1) Open the file ENWarm.sty located
\ibi\WebFOCUS8201\ibi_html\javaassist\intl\EN\combine_templates

2) Save it as
ENWrap.sty

3) Add a line corresponding to your column like:
TYPE=REPORT,COLUMN=MODEL,WRAP=1.5,$
Save the file

4) Now in the Report with IA you click the Themes / Legacy Templates
select the New .sty file: ENWrap.sty
