Unanswered: Reports 6i-vertical elasticity horizontally moves items
I have a repeating frame containing 2 field items & a frame containing another repeating frame that contains 2 field items. Like so:
F_Descrip can wrap to multiple lines while F_Date cannot. Between them in the layout sets M_Frame2 & R_Frame3 containing the other two fields which can occur multiple times. Normally all occurrences of these fit on one line but occasionally they extend to the point that they overlap with the date. Why?
Vert. Elast. Horiz. Elast. Page Prot. Print Dir.
R_Frame1 Variable Fixed No Down
F_Descrip Variable Fixed Yes
F_Date Fixed Fixed No
M_Frame2 Fixed Fixed No
R_Frame3 Variable Variable No Across/Down
F_Item Fixed Variable No
F_Value Fixed Variable No
The most obvious explanation, to me, is that Vert. Elast. of M_Frame2 is Fixed-but when I try changing that to Variable (or Expand) the report moves F_Date to the left where it overlaps the beginning of the other two fields.
How can I fix this? The desired output is:
Description that Item1 Value1 Item2 Value2 Date
wraps to multiple Item3 Value 3
Now back on Oracle. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
