Hi,
I have couple of styling questions related to PDF report.


1.Is there a way to center align the sort data to the page that is when u run the below code i need to the value of SORT VAL column at the center of the page instead of displaying it at the first row.

2.Can we display the value of SORT VAL column once on every page instead of displaying at the beginning of the report.

Thanks for your time.

Move 'SORT VAL' to a HEADING. Also it's not good to use fieldnames with spaces. Use SORT_VAL or redfine the field.

  
BY 'SORT VAL' NOPRINT
HEADING
"<SORT VAL"

If you run the above code you see that the first column is 'SORT VAL' and the data 'FIRST COL' is displayed in the first row and instead of displaying it in the first row i want 'FIRST COL' to be aligned to the middle of 10th and 11th row.

I wrote a couple of WebFOCUS articles years ago that may be of help to you. Here is a direct link to the second one which is located under the IBI Developer Center:

Hi All,
thanks for the replies. I am sorry for not able to explain my issue properly. What i am looking for is to display the SORT_VAL column the way it is displayed in the below report with out displaying the empty space underneath the other columns. I just want to move the sort_val data only.

FILEDEF H1 DISK H1( APPEND
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT *
ON TABLE HOLD AS H1 FORMAT ALPHA
END
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT *
ON TABLE HOLD AS H1 FORMAT ALPHA
END
DEFINE FILE H1
LF/A1 = HEXBYT(10, 'A1');
CR/A1 = HEXBYT(13, 'A1');
CRLF/A2 = CR || LF;

'SORT_VAL'/A100 = CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || CRLF || 'FIRST COL';
END
TABLE FILE H1
PRINT
COUNTRY
CAR
MODEL
SALES
LENGTH
CAR
COUNTRY
MODEL
SALES
BY 'SORT_VAL'
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT PDF
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE SET PAGE OFF
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET PAGE NOLEAD
