[CLOSED] Keep report from overwriting chart on compound document

Hello. I'm new to WebFOCUS and App Studio. I've done some searches in FocalPoint but haven't found anything for this...

I was given an existing .fex to add a summary report page and the first thing I'm running into is that the report listing sometimes has many lines and overwrites the chart heading for the chart at the bottom of the page before the listing continues on the next page. How can I get it to stop on the first page before it bumps into the chart?

Thanks!

Hi Dwaybrigth ,

Try relative properties in component ,

Thanks Chaudhary! That is almost it. The report still overwrites the chart title if there is only be one or maybe two lines overlapping. If there are more, it runs the report to the end of the page and on the top of the next followed by the chart. I'm wondering if there is something else I need to change or add. Ideas?
Thanks again for the help!

If you are still having a problem then I suggest you open a case with techsupport if not please mark this as [SOLVED]

Thanks

I hate to open a case because I feel like there must be something I'm missing (since I'm new to WebFOCUS). But if everyone thinks Chaudhary's suggestion should have fixed it and if it isn't working as expected I guess I should open a case (not sure how to do that either...)

If you haven't done so already you will need to go to http://techsupport.informationbuilders.com and under the My Account menu option choose create an account. You will need your IBI site code to do that. Once you can log in go to Case Management and open a new case.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

I figured it out. When I added the RELATIVE bits to the COMPONENT definition of the chart, I hadn't changed the POSITION values. I changed them to (+.1 +.1) and now my report prints and the chart follows!
