    Default Error layout table report: printer error: preview - hdcPrn is NULL

    Did somebody see this error when going to preview in the new V11 layout reportwriter? Solution? Bugreport already submitted?

    I get this in a report with 2 group bands

    Thanks in advance

    No, but i had to postpone exploring layout table reporting a bit because of other priorities. Will have to (try) to solve it later, html reporting will be very important become very important for us.

    About 50% of the time I get this message when trying to print in Alpha Five (will print fine from other programs)

    "Printer error: print hdcPrn is Null" or sometimes no message and nothing prints.

    Happens just at random, can restart and it may print or it may not.

    Very annoying, but I'm sure it is something simple.

    Thanks

    I get this one sometimes:

    Printer error: printer_init - print_dialog returned NULL hdc.

    Only solution is to restart the WAS

    Sorry, I found this thread in a search and didn't realize it was in not in the desktop forum. I'll re-post.

    This is happening on a stand alone laptop, hooked directly to a dell laser printer.

    Thanks
    Tony
