    Unanswered: looking for a snapshot guru

    hi gurus,

    i've unleashed an application on an unsuspecting world - it works fine for me and my beta testers, but real-life users are getting strange effects with snapshots (the app uses snapshot reporting to avoid the "hidden A window" situation collapsing (as it does with regular report preview)).

    the real-life users are getting the classic section width is greater than page width error that we all know and love from A's reports.

    anyone know where snapshot pulls it's margins & pagewidth from??????

    Izy,

    Answer your own question? How are you invoking the snapshot viewer yourself?
    I'm wondering if it has to do with a "secret" rendering that exposes the error. I abandoned SnapShot in lieu of CutePDF Writer ...

    hi Mike,

    not answering my own Q.

    i know and love .SNP and they work fine for me and for any other machine that i can get my hands on for the setup --- but i'm still lost where the damn things get their pagewidth setting from.

    ...and my invocation:
    Code:
    Public Sub ViewSnap(snpFullPath As String, snpReportName As String)
        On Error GoTo err_ViewSnap
        DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, snpReportName, "Snapshot Format", snpFullPath
        snpFullPath = "c:\program files\snapshot viewer\snapview.exe " & snpFullPath
        Call Shell(snpFullPath, vbNormalFocus)
    exit_ViewSnap:
        Exit Sub
    err_ViewSnap:
        MsgBox Err.Description, vbInformation, "ERROR: " & Err.Number & " in ViewSnap"
        Resume exit_ViewSnap
    End Sub
