SYMPTOMS

When you attempt to export a report from the Microsoft DataReport designer, you receive the following error message:
Report width is larger than the paper width.
This error usually occurs when the report you are trying to export is laid out for Landscape orientation printing.

CAUSE

The DataReport designer expects a page size of 8.5 x 11 inches laid out in a Portrait orientation. Exporting the report to a text file or an HTML file in Landscape orientation does not work properly because of this limitation.

RESOLUTION

There is currently no workaround for this problem in releases prior to Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 4.

This behavior no longer occurs with the version of the DataReport that ships with the latest service pack for Visual Studio 6.0.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This bug was corrected in the latest service pack for Visual Studio 6.0.
