print control on smartform

Former Member

Is there any thing in smartform like the print controls for sapscript? i'm printing a smartform on a dot-matrix printer and i need to print my values compressed (15 cpi) but if i block 15cpi on the printer if i have an empty variable i loose the alignment of my module like this:


number      text
1234        hi!

number      text
         hi!

my problem is that i must print on continuos pre-printed forms.

anyone has solved this problem before?

thanks,

Daniele

i ran into a similar situation, and i solved it by using separate windows for each column.

Though different CPI may affect tabs, etc, it does not affect windows. "hi!" will always print in the window, lined up with "text" in the same window.

just an idea...

i'm already using separate windows

Can't you use a table or template node for this?

yes, a template would also be a perfect (and better) way to go. i just learned about these, and they are very nice.

i started using a template but th problem was the same if i block the printer at 15cpi i loose the alignment anyway.

sorry for my ignorance, but can you explain "block the printer for 15CPI"?

I have never heard this term before.
