[CLOSED] Spacing issue when displaying ascii characters and Superscript in PDF
Hi,
I am trying to display Copyright symbol and a Superscript on the same line in a PDF report. when i run the code these are displayed with additional spacing. Is there a way or command to supress this additional spacing around the super Script value.

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
CAR NOPRINT
COMPUTE REG_TDMRK/A1= HEXBYT(174, 'A1');NOPRINT
COMPUTE COL1/A100 = 'REGISTERED TRADE MARK' || REG_TDMRK | ' SUPERSCRIPTAB TESTING';
COMPUTE COL2/A100 = 'REGISTERED TRADE MARK' | ' SUPERSCRIPTAB TESTING';
WHERE READLIMIT EQ 10

ON TABLE SET DROPBLNKLINE HEADING
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEAD
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT PDF
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
LEFTMARGIN=0.000000,
RIGHTMARGIN=0.000000,
TOPMARGIN=0.000000,
BOTTOMMARGIN=0.000000,
SQUEEZE=ON,
$
TYPE=REPORT,FONT='ARIAL', COLOR=BLACK,STYLE=NORMAL,BORDER-LEFT=OFF,BORDER-RIGHT=OFF,
SIZE=9,BOTTOMGAP=0.023,TOPGAP=0.023,SQUEEZE=ON,$
TYPE=REPORT,COLUMN=P1,WRAP=4,MARKUP=ON,$
TYPE=REPORT,COLUMN=P2,WRAP=4,MARKUP=ON,$
ENDSTYLE
END
Thanks
Kiran

I could not attach the Output Image so pasting the PDF output Data.

OUTPUT

its addding a space between (SUPERSCRIPT AB) in COL1 where as there is no space in COL2.

I ran your code and I did't any spacing problem with superscript AB in COL1.

I am using 8.1.05 App Stdio, I can see you are using 8.2 App Studio.

It's better if someone can help us.

Thank You.

You have an extra space between the apostrophe and SUPERSCRIPTAB TESTING in col1. Remove the space.
COMPUTE COL1/A100 = 'REGISTERED TRADE MARK' || REG_TDMRK | 'SUPERSCRIPTAB TESTING';
I misunderstood your initial question.

I did run the code PAV provided and I don't see any additional spacing issues in Col1 from Col2, using WebFOCUS 8.2.
