This client is running WebFOCUS 7.6.10 on an i-Series / AS400 server. The database is DB2. The report requirement is to list pairs of columns from one table OVER the next pair. The problem is that the second field in each pair is format A800. I.E.

TEXT1 COMMENT1
TEXT2 COMMENT2
TEXT3 COMMENT3

For some reason that I cannot figure out, the WRAP command works fine for the first pair of fields, but not for any that follow the OVER statement. Here is an example using CAR:

[code}

DEFINE FILE CAR
COMMENT1/A800=WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY | WARRANTY;
COMMENT2/A800=CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD | CAR.EQUIP.STANDARD;
END

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

This looks suspiciously like a bug!

Try as I might, I couldn't get two long fields to WRAP in the PDF report.

DEFINE FILE CAR
COMMENT1/A850 =
  '1 ' |
  (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) ||
  (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) ||
  (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) ||
  (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL);
COMMENT2/A850 =
  '2 ' |
  (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) ||
  (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) ||

  (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL) || (' ' | MODEL);
BLANK1/A1 = '';
END

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT

This must be related to OVER and WRAP.

I would suggest making the three sets of data into rows, and it should then work.

Pity the lost knowledge of an old programmer!

Use SQUEEZE:

  
TYPE=REPORT,
COLUMN=N1,
SQUEEZE=0.65,
$
TYPE=REPORT,
COLUMN=N2,
SQUEEZE=8.8,
$
TYPE=REPORT,
COLUMN=N3,
SQUEEZE=0.65,
$
TYPE=REPORT,
COLUMN=N4,
SQUEEZE=8.8,
$


If that doesn't work, WRAP the text yourself with PARAG function...
