PDF File not being created

Post by Anonymous »

Hi, I've created a report, it prints to screen, printer and I can save manually to a file, but I cannot automate it, despite being able to do exactly what I want in the last program I wrote. I cannot see where I'm going wrong. Here's the code, and a screenshot of the variables output:

METHOD OKButton( ) CLASS EditInvoice
Local oReport as RpReport
Local cFileName, cWorkDir,cMessage, cStr as String
Local nInv, cCaption
nInv := self:Server:FIELDGET(#INVNO)

If gTermDays == 0
gDueDate := FT_LDay(Today())
else
gDueDate := Today() + gTermDays
end if

// Bill To fields

In the screenshot above, I've tried the file name (cFileName) with and without the ' at either end. No difference.

Any ideas please?

OK, looks like it is to do with RpExport.dll somehow, as it doesn't export to ANY format. The file size is always 0kb. Surely if it was a programmatic thing it wouldn't print properly? And why does it work fine from my other program???

Jeff,
Does the version of the export DLL match the version of the other RP dlls ?
Look at the tab 'Details'.

No spaces didn't work I'm afraid Phil, but thank you. I tried aTest.pdf no difference... As for the DLL versions Robert, they all say 2.30.1.0

After further investigation and testing, it appears the report itself is the culprit. Any ideas what may be causing it please? BMINVOICE WORKS, LAINVOICE does not. I also removed the image.... no difference....

I have now deleted EVERYTHING off the report - text, fields, boxes, image, everything. It still plays up. Now this error has started:

Hi Jeff,

"memory low" means exactly that - you have run out of memory.
Maybe you have some sort of loop in your code, or better, an inifinite recursion.
When I see this error, normally thatis the cause.

P.S. I don't use nor know ReportPro, so I cannot give you any hint

Yeah thanks Wolfgang, It's totally got me beat. I fire up the program, click the screen to activate the listing, then click ok. That's it! I cannot for the life of me see any loop.

Well, that didn't work out. BUT I now KNOW it's not my code. It's the Report itself causing all my grief. I can export other reports to pdf using my code, just not this one report, which is attached. Any ideas please? I suspect maybe the grouping???
