Reporting Question; Custom Page Size

    Question

  • I'm having trouble setting up a report that will be printed on custom sized paper. The page setup will not let me set a portrait format where the page is wider than tall. In this application, the page is 4" wide and 2.5" tall, a tag for parts in inventory. VS keeps setting it as landscape format which confuses the printer.

    First off, can anyone duplicate this?

    Does anyone have a work around?

    I'm using VS 2010.

  • Hello Bernie,

    Thank you for your post.

    Your issue is out of support range of VS General Question forum which mainly discusses the usage issue of Visual Studio IDE such as WPF & SL designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System and Visual Studio Editor.

    If you work with crystal report, I suggest that you can consult your issue directly on SAP Crystal Reports: http://scn.sap.com/community/crystal-reports/content?filterID=content~objecttype~objecttype[thread]   for better solution and support.

    Best regards,

  • Amanda,

    This is using the Microsoft Reporting features in VS. I posted where I did because I couldn't find a better place for reporting questions. Can you suggest where I should post this type of question?

  • So are you taking about SSRS?

  • Client side reporting using the Microsoft reporting tools in a forms application. I close cousin to SSRS, but not server side and not SQL Server.

  • When is MS going to really embrace the reporting features in VS? Crystal has whole forums dedicated to their tool and Microsoft has none for their tool, hahahaha. From my practical testing the MS client side reporting is faster than Crystal which makes it better. But getting support for it is terrible!

    I guess if I use it on a web application then I have to use the generic ASP .Net forum?
