li_ret=dw_rpt.SaveAs(ls_filename, PDF!, false)
li_ret=dw_rpt.SaveAs(ls_filename, Text!, false)

 

PDF! returns -1, Text! returns 1. What's up? Is there some NativePDF not set?

Hi Lynn,

 

The cause of the issue seems that you haven't turned on the NativePDF! It's suggested that you check if you turn this feature on referring to Chris's reply.

You can also refer to the link below about using the NativePDF feature:
https://docs.appeon.com/pb2019r2/pbug/ch20s03.html#Saving_as_PDF_using_PDFlib
e.g.:
dw_rpt.Modify ("DataWindow.Export.PDF.Method = NativePDF!")
li_ret=dw_rpt.SaveAs(ls_filename, PDF!, false)


If the issue persists, kindly please report this issue to our ticket system: https://www.appeon.com/standardsupport/newbug so it can be properly received and tracked. Please also provide a sample PB test case (with PBT / PBL) when you submit it to the ticket system.

 

Regards,

Hi Lynn;

  Did you turn on the NativePDF! feature either in ...

  • The DW Painter              // or
  • In the App's PB.INI file     // or
  • Set the NativePDF! options in the DWO at runtime via PowerScript

before issuing the SaveAs() command?

=> What are the PDF settings currently in use in your DWO(s)?

Regards ... Chris
