Recently, we upgraded to:
DataMigrator Server Version 7 Release 7.05
WebFOCUS Reporting Server Version 8.0.01

Some of the PDF reports appear with the column’s data shifting, and then overlapping.

Please see screen shot below.

The column’s data shifting and overlapping appear on the first line of the next page when data continue for a FACILITY doesn’t finish on the previous page. This was introduced in the new version since they have never happened before.

Please see code below.
---------------------
PRINT
START
END
ASSIGNMENTS/I4 AS 'GROUPS,ASSIGNED'
GROUPCAPACITY/I4 AS 'GROUP,CAPACITY'
NUMSTUDENTS/I4 AS 'STUDENTS,ASSIGNED'
STUDENTCAPACITY/I4 AS 'STUDENT,CAPACITY'
BY FACILITY
BY START NOPRINT

Has anyone met such case before? Have any solution?

Thanks

I would open a case with Tech Support.

It might not help, but try using
SET PRINTPLUS = ON
if it is not already in the code. It clears up many PDF formatting mysteries.

I have also had "shifting" data on reports when the actual data contains "special characters" e.g. tabs, new line etc.

As a side note though:
quote:

PRINT
START
END

I'm intrigued by the fact that WebFOCUS knows what to do with a field called "END" !


WebFOCUS 8.2.06 mostly Windows Server

Thanks all responses!!

We opened a case with Tech Support (Francis suggested also). Yesterday, we got an email from Tech Support:
- do not able to reproduce your issue so far in release 7.7.05.
-Change: SET PRINTPLUS=ON
To: SET PRINTPLUS=OFF

Also 'SET PRINTPLUS=ON' has been used in all our reports; PDF output contains page number on FOOTING BOTTOM.

Twanette, how to fix data shifting since contains special characters?

Have any one know other reasons can cause data shifting?

Thanks for the help.

Change: SET PRINTPLUS=ON
To: SET PRINTPLUS=OFF

Has anyone figured this out yet?
