I have a VFP form that prints through XFRX just fine but when I switch to COM, the lower portion is just missing. When I say the lower portion, I am actually referring to the footer section of the report.

Now mind you all of the classlib for XFRX are in the path of the COM server. And for that matter I have several other reports that are working just fine.

The report that is now giving me problems was working before I tweaked something earlier in the week. That said, it works perfectly in FILE mode.

Any clues where to look?

Never mind, after tweaking enough objects around on the page, it has started working once again.

Not sure if adjusting the Page Footer was the problem or if something was to close to a margin.

The server has an MS XPS Printer for the default. Maybe it includes some margin setting, I could not find it if there is one. Besides, I'm printing to XFRX and outputting as a PDF. If it was a margin, I assume it would be set in some parameter in XFRX and not the MS XPS Driver.

Strange!

Xfrx does not use the printer driver. It writes to its own dbf file and then to pdf. You can actually open and manipulate the intermediate tables it produces, which comes in really handy.

Good to know! It was a strange issue that got fixed by fudging the margins.

Now onto Google Charts... ??

Thanks Michael!
