Hi I need help with a problem I am having in Reports 2.0.13.
I would like to be able to dump a mailing list from Oracle7 to an ASCII
(system) file using Reports. This ASCII file would then be imported into
a word processor for further manipulation. O.K...great....sort of. I
use the WIN/OS2 Generic/Text Print Driver in an attempt to create this
ASCII file. However I only get one line of text truncated at column 80
in my ASCII file...not quite what I want.
If I dump the same report to the (destype) screen I get exactly what I
anticipate. It looks like the Generic/Text printer driver is somewhat
limited in scope in this regard. Oracle Reports for Windows no longer
support the concept of a printdef printer file so I think I am toast.
I suppose I could use Forms and DDE to accomplish my task but I would
prefer not to.
All suggestions and observations are welcome....thanks in advance!
