Regarding the default list output font & format ?

Former Member

We had written a class list output program to print the employee personal & employment details. In the final display in the event AT NEW PERNR I used NEW-PAGE to achieve explicit page break for every new Employee details . And I kept the Line-count as 72. So In my pc I downloaded the list output in my PC as .txt file . And I had taken the printout which came perfectly with 72 lines per page and also with explicitly page break achieving.

But now the problem is in my client system the no.of lines are coming are 85 and followingly page break is not coming perfectly. So I crosschecked the font in my notepad with the client notepad and made changes according to that . Even though the formatting and page breaking is not coming perfectly.

So could you please any body help me how to fix this issue?

What is the default font & size of list output in SAP. How can I bridge this gap for different client PC configurations?

You can use the addition PRINT ON or LINE COUNT addition of the NEW PAGE.

Like this:

data: print_parameters TYPE pri_params.

print_parameters-PAART = 'X_65_80'.


       PRINT ON PARAMETERS print_parameters.

Hi Patel,

By using print parameters list display will come or not?

Actually there is no problem from SAP it was giving  correctly but there should be some font setting in client pc acccording to SAP standard font .

Just now I got know that sap  by default will use Courier New in windows platform . But I am having doubt about the default font size ?

Default font size can be seen in GUI settings.
